No first time paddlers - as swimming is totally forbidden in the canals, we are not allowed to jump in the water. You don't need to be a pro, just be confident with the basic SUP techniques: you need to stop the board at the crossings or junctions also in the current and you need to know how to veer 90° sharp (no surfing stance, paddling backwards is ok)
