    Requirements

    Please let us know if you have any specific medical needs or any if additional support is required. All information will be treated in confidence and only used to ensure you have the best possible experience on the day.

    What to bring

    The most important thing to bring is a can-do attitude and to be prepared to learn something new.


    We provide top quality boards and equipment and have shower facilities on site and recommend showering after being in / on the water .


    You will need to bring:


    towel

    water bottle

    water shoes

    sunscreen (rec w/p F50)

    shorts / tee-shirt

    wet suit (if you have one)

    snacks


    Wet suits are personal choice and only required on colder days


    We have some wet suits for hire but cannot guarantee having the right size so contact us in advance to check if you need this add on.


    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.
