    If you're not familiar with the site, we ask that you arrive 15mins before your session so that we can get you booked in and for you to get changed and down to the lake.


    Itinerary

    On arrival you'll be met and checked in by one of the team who'll explain everything that's going to happen.


    You'll be shown where to change and when ready you'll have an introduction to the kit and a safety brief, then we'll head down to the lake, warm up and get on the water.


    We start slowly, getting you used to floating on a SUP and steering from a sitting / kneeling position.


    We'll then get you standing up, paddling forwards, turning and climbing back on.


    We all fall in at some point, but the lake is shallow and we're all trained to ensure you have a safe and fun time.
