About the SUP coaching

Do you want to get the most out of your whitewater SUP session and have an experienced ISA-certified instructor only for yourself? Private whitewater SUP coaching is all about you and your goals! We will focus on areas you want to improve and build up your whitewater SUP skills step by step. All at your own pace, practicing on the water for two and a half hours.

If you have tried whitewater SUP but didn’t feel control over the board or want to level up quickly, this is the right place. We will go through the essential theory and river safety but, most importantly, practice on water and play in the waves.

And don’t worry about the gear. We’ve got everything to keep you comfortable and safe!

Soča river is the best SUP playground

Soča is, without a doubt, one of the best playgrounds to learn whitewater SUP. It has various sections of different difficulty levels from class I to class III. There are many playful waves and places to practice, but always enough space to slow down and have a break. We will carefully choose the best river section for you, and every day we can step up.

Your coach

Hi, I am Sebestyén, founder of Bovec SUP and ISA-certified SUP instructor. Guiding on whitewater has been my mission for more than 10 years.

I love to share my knowledge about whitewater paddleboarding, especially on one of the most beautiful rivers in the world, which Soča definitely is.

I put together my own method of teaching based on my experience with hundreds of clients. We will learn together all the essential theories, but most importantly, have fun in the waves and focus on your improvement. Whitewater SUP is not only about paddling down the river, and I can not wait to show you how to master your SUP with style!

5* trips in Slovenia Sebestyen who runs Bovec SUP is an absolute LEGEND!The whole group agreed that Sebi has definitely set the bar when it comes to tour guides for any other adventure trips we might do. From the minute we met him we knew it was going to be a fun week and in safe hands. He is a lovely chap a true gentleman, very knowledgeable in all things water sports related, his English was brilliant, knew everything about the beautiful country he lives in, very passionate about his career and made us all feel comfortable.There was endless encouragement, high fives and hugs for the whole group, nothing was too much for him. He made us fresh still lemonade every day and provided us with yummy energy bars, all the boards and equipment provided were of a high standard.The whole tour was absolutely brilliant, so much to see and the waters are just insane. I totally recommend this company.

Beautiful SUP tour We had an awesome SUP tour with Sebestyén and Judit! They both were super friendly and made the whole tour an absolute exiting experience! The group was small and definitely not overbooked, we had selfmade lemonade and snacks and felt well taken care the whole time 🙂

Must have SUP tour 😀 Fantastic SUP Experience with Sebi, he is a great guide and also an excellent SUP trainer. We learned a lot from him, we enjoyed the beautiful view on the river Soca with his unbelievable nature and had so much in the meantime. This trip with him is far more than what you expect. I would highly recommend him and we will come again next year to try rafting with him.

FAQ

If you know the date of your holidays, there is nothing to wait for. Sometimes we have space for last-minute reservations, but in the high season (June-August), it can happen that our activities will be sold out on your desired date. However, in that case, we always try to find a different solution.

Each day we spend on the water 2,5 hours. That’s our best experience, so you keep focused and full of energy.

You don’t need a whitewater SUP experience. However, it is necessary that you are confident with paddleboarding on flatwater.

You only need to bring a swimsuit and towel, we will take care of all the rest.

We understand that sometimes things don’t go as we planned. We don’t charge any cancellation fee, but we would kindly ask you to let us know as soon as possible. We need to plan our logistics, and like that, we can also offer your spot to someone else who otherwise couldn’t come.

Rain showers are fine on water, as we will be wet anyways, but in case of storms and wind, we will reach you a day before your tour to discuss options. In case of cancellation, you, of course, don’t pay anything.

PRE-BOOKING FORM

Choose your SUP adventure and let us know the ideal date. We will reach you by e-mail within 24 hours and set the details of your trip/course together. For now, you are not committing to anything.

Thank you for your message! We will get back to you as soon as we get out of water. :-)
