Coasting – Stand Up Paddleboarding for Women

How does Coasting work?

Coasting is a Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP) program for women to help them start their journey to a healthier more active life. Coasting is an initiative of VicHealth which falls under the “Changing the Game initiative. It offers the chance to experience Stand Up Paddleboarding and helps provide an avenue for continued participation in SUP. Coasting offers participants a chance to embark on “your journey,” to get out on the water and try a new emerging activity that is SUP.
