JOIN YOUR FIRST TRAINING

Before you go out on the water on your own, you have to participate in a “Newbie SUP club training”! Find the event on facebook and click “participating”. Make a post in the group that it is your first training, so the instructor knows :). If it’s your first training, come a half hour earlier and we will tell you how things work and give you your wristband. If you can’t make it 30 minutes before the training, let us know and tell the instructor can give you a tour after the training

NEW MEMBER? THEN READ THIS PLEASE

Get at good entrance in the Club Surf Agency and read following information and guidelines. Then everything will run smooth and easy :-)

HANDLING AND CARE OF THE EQUIPMENT

The equipment you use is expensive (6-15.000kr), so we take good care of it – You are responsible for the equipment you are using, so please use it as if was your own – SUP equipment can easily get damaged on asphalt. Put the equipment on wood, sand or water. When you need to stop on asphalt, make sure that you handle the equipment with extreme care. – When you carry the SUP equipment, make sure that the leash is not hanging on the ground. – Help each other getting the beards in/out of the racks as well as up/down the stairs to the platform. Both to take care of your backs and our boards!! – Remove fins before storage – Before you storage the board, put the leash around the board or fins, so nobody can tumble over it. – When you see damages on the equipment, please let us know so we can fix it. – Don’t use boards that are damaged!

WATER

Safety on the water is the most important thing! We play with the elements water and wind and should know how to behave in different weather conditions or emergencies. – When you participate in the SUP Club trainings, you are covered by our insurance. – When you go out besides the trainings, it’s on your own responsibility. – You need to be able to swim min. 200 meters without life vest and wetsuit. We don’t require a test. – Always take a life vest when you don’t feel too comfortable in the water. – The first 2 SUP trainings, we require to wear a life vest. – You are allowed to go out by yourself after participating in 1 SUP trainings.

WIND AND WEATHER

Before you go on the water, make sure you checked the weather forecast! (YR.no, dmi) Generally – We go out to not more than 6m/sec, and never in thunder and lightning!

OTHER STUFF

Sustainability – We love our nature! – We don’t throw trash in the sea – We pick it up any trash that we see and bring back. – We have some collaboration with Green Kayak (Miljøkajakken) and Havmiljøvogterne and we are always working on sustainable ideas and bringing the thoughts to everyone else we collaborate with. See more information here: www.havmiljvogter.dk, http://plasticchange.dk/

MEMBERSHIP ON HOLD

With no extra charge you can put your membership on hold. Send us an email with information onwhen you wish your membership to be reactivated. Min. on hold period is one month, and max. 7month. The on hold period will be activated from the end of your current period. The billing will be paused meanwhile.

SUP BOARDS, PADDLES, WASHING AND STORAGE

When you come for a SUP tour besides the trainings and there are boards at the water, first make sure we don’t need them for any events before you take them :). In the garage we have the ACE TEC boards, which are even lighter (and more fragile!) – you can also take those boards! Washing & storage the boards: When you are back from your tour or the training, put the boards (JUST THE TOUGH TEC AND JP AUSTRALIA BOARDS) on the rolling racks. Please make sure you know the difference between the boards, look at the files on the facebook group and ask our instructors! When one rack is full, you roll it in front of our location and wash the boards with our water hose and a broom, which you can find in the cleaning corner of the garage. The ACE TEC boards and WING boards don’t belong on the rolling racks. You bring them directly to the location and wash them on the “IKEA legs”. There will be a nicer option in the future! Empty your Paddles of water, before you hang them back! – The usage of sup board, paddle, leash and vest is included in all memberships – There are certain boards – like our personal race boards – that can not be used (the wall on the far left). The “BIC Wing boards” can be used after you have participated in 3 trainings (the rack on the left) – If you want to try a race board, we have inflatable JP Australia boards and an NSP Softdeck board you can use!

CLUB FACILITIES

We have a club room, surfers garage, shower rooms and outdoor area that you all can use to ‘hygge’ after or before the training! In case that the club room is rented out for other events during the training days, we will inform you in advance. Street shoes stay outside the shower areas! Before everyone is leaving the shower room, make sure that it’s clean.There is a mop in the shower and in the changing room. Just swap roughly over the floor. – In the big changing room just open the window a little bit before you leave. – In the small changing room, leave the last light/ventilation on. Feel free to use our equipped kitchen before or after the trainings! Especially in the winter times we use it a lot – f.ex. for hygge, coffee & cake and board games :). You can also bring snacks and put it in the Club fridge. The rules are pretty simple: Clean up after yourself. Take food out of the fridge before you leave, put your dishes in the dish washing machine or if its full, just clean it, dry it and put it back in the bar. When we have fresh glasses standing outside, its probably for our groups that booked an event or for our crew. Just take your own glass from the kitchen. Please also keep the changing facilities clean. We have cleaning tools for the floor in each changing room when the floor is wet. In case you can’t find it, just ask the crew :).

WINDDIRECTION IS IMPORTANT

Wind from the west: Aarhus Bugten is quiet wind protected and sometimes you can still SUP with up to 7-8 m/sec, but stay close to shore! As soon you get more distance to the shore, you get more into the wind-window!

-Wind from east: Already 5 m/sec can be too much on the open sea because the wind is coming on shore. If you feel comfortable with water and are a good swimmer, it’s fun to play with some waves! In the harbour areas it’s quiet wind protected.

-Wind from south: It’s nice to paddle towards the sea with tailwind but it can be very hard to paddle back with headwind. Be aware and make sure you have enough power to paddle against the headwind!

-Wind from north: It’s more safe than south wind, as you paddle first with headwind and it’s easy to get back again, but be aware that the wind direction might change when you are heading out, so never rely on an easy return.

SUP TRAININGS

- WINTER (NOV - APRIL) -

SIGNING UP FOR TRAININGS ON FACEBOOK

Every training has an event on facebook! In case you don’t see the event in the event overview, check the “calendar view” on facebook and you should see it. In every event we will post who the instructor is and maybe also already what we are gonna do that day. If you have questions, just write the instructor or make a post in the event. Please don’t send us emails or facebook messages on surf agency. We might not see them in time. If you do not have a facebook account you can sign up for trainings online on this page (see below)

NICE 2 KNOW WHEN YOU ATTEND THE SUP TRAININGS

Be ready dressed to the start-time downstairs in our community area. We always have a small briefing before we go on the water together. If the instructor already posted in the event what boards we are gonna take, please bring the boards already down to the platform and help each other! The waiting time, until all members arrived, is the perfect time to chat and get to know each other or ask for help in preparing the boards or to speak about the different equipment.

SUP TOURS BESIDE TRAININGS

Besides our opening hours, you have access to the location from 05.00 in the morning until 23.00 in the evening. Do not go out when it is dark. During dawn and dusk please wear a bright west (like in traffic) or shirt and preferably light as well. Ask us for recommendations.

MIN 4 SIGNUPS FOR TRAINING OR TRAINING WILL BE CANCELED

Be sure to sign up for the training on the facebook event latest the the day before.. so that the instructor knows how many is participating the training. If there is less than 4 signups. the training will be cancelled.

See you on the water.

SUP RACE – TRAINING

+ SØNDAG KL 11-13

Kom i form til at deltage i SUP konkurrencerne! Vi arbejder med vores turns, beach starts, prøver at øge vores udholdenhed og fart, arbejder med teknik og laver intervaltræning. Vi er på private race boards eller klubbens cruise boards. Race træning er ikke for begyndere men man kan godt være med selvom man ikke ønsker at konkurrere og man kan altid springe over et par sprints eller padle tilbage før de andre. Typisk padler vi 7-15km med høj intensitet.

SUNday FUNday

+ SØNDAG KL 13-15

Sjove og udfordrende øvelser hvor alle kan være med - også børn og begyndere. Vi laver f.eks. Teambilding øvelser, SUP Polo, SUP Yoga, opfinder nye lege, balanceøvelser, og laver små sjove konkurrencer. Vi padler ikke langt, typisk ud til vores lille strand lige udenfor havnen.

SUNRISE SUP

+ FREDAG KL 08 - 09:30

Morgen SUP er en god mulighed for at komme ud af sengen, mødes med andre klubmedlemmer og padle en tur ud at se solopgangen. Det er den bedste måde at starte dagen på!!!  Der er ikke en instruktør med så i bestemmer selv hvor langt i padler og hvor lang tid i har til rådighed.

WEDNESDAY WINTER FUSION

+ ONSDAG KL 17 - 18:30

Da det bliver tidligt mørkt i vinterhalvåret kører vi ikke træninger på vandet de sene eftermiddage. Istedet mødes vi til forskellige workshops / workouts. Wednesday Winter Fusion kan være alt fra Yoga session, board repair workshops, motivational talks, bølge teori, film-aftener, Is badning, eller hygge.

NEWBIE TRAINING

+ SØNDAG KL 11 - 13 (Denne træning kører ikke i vinterhalvåret, istedet deltager begyndere SUNday Funday som den første begynder træning, rundvisning og nøgleudlevering)

Begyndertræningen gentager nogle af tingene fra intro-kurset og så lærer i mere om håndtering af udstyr og de forskellige typer udstyr, og vi padler en god tur. Alle skal deltage i mindst én begyndertræning inden deltagelse i andre træninger eller inden man tager ud på egen hånd. Her udleveres også nøgle og mere info om klubben. Vi padler en tur sammen, hygger, lærer hinanden lidt at kende og der er masser af mulighed for at stille spørgsmål. Øvede klubmedlemmer er velkommen til at padle med og lære de nye medlemmer at kende.

SUP CRUISE

+ ONSDAG KL 17-19 (Denne træning kører ikke i vinterhalvåret da det bliver tidligt mørkt)

Vi padler lidt længere ture, arbejder lidt med vores teknik, hygger, snakker - lære hinanden at kende, laver lidt forskellige sjove øvelser - der har nogle gange været med eller drikke på turene også :-) Vi padler typisk omkring 5 km langsomt.
