PaddleOn stand up paddle (SUP) rehabilitation program for men and women recovering from all kinds of cancer.

- Five week program, designed to introduce new skills and techniques week by week.

- Improves confidence, balance, strength, posture, flexibility and fitness.

- Delivered by certified PINC & STEEL physiotherapists in calm, flatwater locations.

- Fun and supportive small group environment

- Suitable for all ages and fitness levels

- Subsidised by PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Trust

- Participants need to complete primary cancer treatment (surgery / chemotherapy / radiotherapy) before starting the program.

Register with your local PINC & STEEL Physio, who will conduct an assessment screen to make sure your strength, balance and overall health is sufficient to safely take part on the program.

After screening you will attend two scheduled on-water sessions with a Physio and SUP Instructor every week for 4 weeks, with the last session being an adventure paddle that gives you a chance to explore a different location, and introduce your family or friends to SUP. Allow five weeks to complete the program in case of poor weather.

Starboard SUP boards, paddles, leashes and lifejackets are provided.

November - December PaddleOn courses will be held in Auckland (Orakei/Okahu Bay), North Shore (Castor Bay) and Warkworth.

Introductory Pool Session 5 November, National Aquatic Centre, Albany.

Orakei Basin / Okahu Bay | Monday and Wednesday 7am or 9am

Castor Bay | Tues and Thursday 7am or 9am

The program cost is subsidised by the PINC & STEEL Cancer Rehabilitation Trust, there is a $20 surcharge for the assessment screen and $5 surcharge for each module, making the total cost to participants only $60 for the whole program.
