Join Australian SUP Champion and expert paddle coach, Beau Nixon on a fully guided SUP coaching experience aboard the brand new luxury Maldives charter boat, Sea Pleasure. This coaching experience is ideal for intermediate to advanced SUP surfers looking to enhance their SUP surfing ability in paradise.
