Learn, improve and elevate your SUP skills to the next level with Norm Hann
Stand Up Paddleboard expert and enthusiast Norm Hann joined our staff training in Belize four winters ago. He taught SUP skills to our guides and the idea was born to offer some SUP trips to our guests. Norm led the inaugural trip in February 2015 and returned for several trips last winter.
We are thrilled to have him back again this season, joining select 2019-20 departures as guest instructor and trip coordinator on the Coral Islands SUP as well as the Glover's Getaway.

He is an ambassador athlete with Kialoa paddles and has raced throughout Canada and North America. His most memorable race was competing in the 2013 Molokai2Oahu Paddleboard championships and being the first solo Canadian to cross the finish line.
Norm runs an expedition company that offers remote SUP expeditions to world class destinations, paddle surf courses and SUP instruction and training. Norm is a Paddle Canada surf and coastal instructor trainer and his adventures have been featured in SBC Surf, Explore, Sierra, Standup Paddle, and British Columbia Magazine.

The Coral Islands SUP journeys by Stand Up Paddleboard between local island lodges in the Southwater Caye Marine Reserve along Belize’s Southern Barrier Reef. As you glide over the coral reefs, you will see sting rays, grouper and a fascinating marine underworld from a unique perspective. The sheltered lagoons and turquoise waters are calm and clear, yet there are still plenty of ways to challenge yourself by getting outside the reef.
