Pod   Points    Ladder

July 2017 - June 2018

SUP in WA is a friendly community. Part of the enjoyment of SUP is doing with someone or a group. Through SUPWA, you have the opportunity to create a "mini SUP club" known as a pod to organise paddling sessions and compete in SUPWA events.

WHAT IS A SUPWA POD?

A Pod is the collective noun for a group of dolphins. They form pods to hunt and play together, sometimes teaming with other pods to create "super pods". Dolphin pods are welcoming of newcomers, which is why the term pod is a great fit for the WA SUP community. SUPWA pods are a group of paddlers, that arrange to meet and a pre-arranged location and time to paddle together. There are several pods in Perth and in regional areas such as Bunbury and Karratha.

WHAT DOES A SUPWA POD DO?

A Pod can do what they like however SUPWA strongly recommend safety be considered at all times and newcomers should buddy up with an experienced paddler. Most pods involve racing training, some are surf or downwind oriented, some are simply a gentle cruise. It's an opportunity to get like minded paddlers together to enjoy SUP. There is a fantastic series of events run by SUPWA and all participants are encouraged to nominate a pod that they will compete for. Pods use the SUPWA facebook page to update pod training sessions and SUP website – news section to communicate SUP related info to the SUP community. 

HOW DO I CREATE A POD?

If you are a full SUPWA member, Industry member* or Corporate Sponsors*, it's easy. Simply email the SUPWA secretary membership@supwa.com.au with the following details. Pods require 2 Pod contacts + Mobile numbers (or email) (both full SUPWA members) to form a pod. Let us know the name of the pod (anything you like, but remember it will feature on the SUPWA webpage - so keep it clean!). The primary location you will paddle from and the type of Pod you are forming - racing, downwinding, surfing, cruising?

* Only Industry members and Corporate Sponsors can name their Pod after their business. Businesses should be aware that a Pod is not a paddle school and that SUPWA member's insurance is only personal accident not public liability. A Pod is a training group that competes in the SUPWA Pod League under the business name.

Any SUPWA member can form a pod, its a great way to share our sport. You don't have to be a SUPWA member to paddle in a pod though (you do if you want to compete - day membership available).

Have fun!
