  • Description

    Why not book an instructor all to yourself. Whether you want to work on your technique or just introduce yourself to SUP at your own pace - our qualified and experienced instructors can do all of that for you.


    This stand up paddleboard session is suitable for beginners and adults of all abilities and ages.


    Requirements

    You do not need to be a proficient swimmer, but should be comfortable about falling into water while wearing a buoyancy aid.


    A certain level of flexibility and ability to get up to standing from kneeling is required for learning to paddleboard.


    You will need to shower / wash thoroughly after the session if you have fallen in or been splashed and need to ensure any open cuts are covered.


    We have taken people with physical and mental disabilities out on the water however please contact us before booking as we may need to take you out privately to ensure you receive the coach's full attention.


    We will also need to know of any recent injuries prior to the session.

    What to bring

    No preparation is needed but dress appropriately for the weather, bring a change of clothes and footwear to wear on water (read below detailed guidance). 


    We advise checking the weather forecast before your session and dressing appropriately based on the weather conditions on the day - taking wind and rain factor into account. 


    What should I bring:


    1. Shoes you will wear on a SUP (depending on the time of year - read below)
    2. Spare clothes and a towel (in case you fall in and need to shower) 
    3. Sun protection (sunscreen and sun hat)
    4. Retainer for your glasses
    5. Refillable water bottle (you can top up at the arches)
    6. Dry bag if you are planning to take things with you on water including waterproof phone case for your phone. We have some dry bags and phone cases for sale on site. 


    Warmer weather


    Quick drying sportswear/gymwear - short or long sleeve tops, leggings, shorts, quick drying trousers (avoid denim and heavy cotton - it can get heavy when wet and holds moisture making you chill down quickly).


    Footwear - neoprene water shoes are best. Inexpensive neoprene shoes are now widely available to buy. However, if you don't have these, don't worry. On your first few sessions you will be fine wearing a pair of flat sole trainers/converse/ hiking sandals with a heel strap - anything that will stay on your feet, footwear with a sturdy flat sole that you don't mind getting wet and possibly muddy.


    Avoid flip- flops as hey will fall off your feet, you can trip over and injure yourself! There are sharp stones on the river banks and in wetter weather some river mud so wearing flip-flops can be dangerous.


    We avoid barefoot paddling because of the risks of injury and infection (falling over, cutting your feet on sharp stones, getting infected etc).


    1. Light windproof/waterproof jacket or a spare top if you think you will get chilly. 
    2. Spare jumper/throw on top you may wish to put on after exercising to warm up and stay cosy. 


    Colder weather


    1. Windproof/waterpoof light jacket.
    2. Thermal top. 


    In colder weather we strongly advise wearing light thermals and wetsuits and a wooly hat (we lose lots of heat through the head!) We have a selection of wetsuits that can be borrowed on our sessions. You may wish to wear a bigger wetsuit with tight fitting layer under - a baselayer and a pair of leggings. 


    Footwear in colder weather is very important - your feet will get cold! We recommend neoprene shoes and boots and in very cold weather neoprene socks as well. 


    1. Spare clothes, warm jumper/throw on cosy top are essential in winter to keep you warm after exercise.
