The Point Waterfront Canal located behind uShaka Marine World is 500m of the cleanest water in Durban. The aquarium pumps in water from the ocean which is filtered to clean it and the excess water gets circulated into the canal. There’s a few pretty reef fish swimming around and contrary to popular Durban myth there are no hungry sharks ready to bite.
The canal is shallow throughout so you don’t need to be a swimmer to enjoy SUP at the Point Waterfront.
Contrary to popular belief you don’t need to have good balance. We have wide stable boards that do the balancing for you. All you need to do, is be able to breathe and relax and become one with the movement on the water.
If you’re feeling apprehensive, relax, it’s normal! Most people we meet are a little fearful about this new experience. We promise to make it fun. Within fifteen minutes they are paddling along happily and becoming addicted to this awesome sport.
We teach everyone from a 4 year old child to a 70 year old looking for something new to enjoy. You don’t need to be fit. You just need a desire to learn something new and have fun.
