Stand up paddling for beginners

Hi - I'll be staying in Nikiana in june and hope to take a beginners course in SUP - preferably in the (hopefully) flat seas on the east coast - can anyone recommend a good place to go.

Many thanks for any advice.

Err - if I knew what SUP was it might help !! If its a kind of water sport where you stand on a board then head for beachfront at Nikiana Beach hotel where there is a sailing school- sure they will advise .

Thanks! SUP is Stand Up Paddling - from what I can see it looks like an an 'easy' water sport in terms of skill (if you stay in calm water) but lots of good exercise. It's pretty new as a sport (although practised down the ages by Hawaiins I understand) so I am not sure if the local beach clubs will have the gear (oversized boards and long paddles) or the lessons organised.
