    Why not book out an instructor all to yourself?

    Whether you want to work on your SUP technique and confidence or to have a gentle introduction to SUP at your own pace - private session can be fully tailored to your needs.

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

    Please complete the questionnaire as information about your paddling ability, weight and height helps the instructor to choose the right equipment for you.

    You will need to be able to swim and be confident in the water. Certain level of flexibility and ability to get up to standing from kneeling is required for learning to paddleboard.

    *Please note 3rd party vouchers are not applicable for these sessions.

    Weather conditions

    Whilst we endeavour to carry out our SUP sessions, instructors' availability and weather conditions (if it is very windy or there is torrential rain meaning poor visibility) may mean we have to reschedule your lesson. We will always contact you to advise you as soon as we are able to discuss the options with you.


    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 as soon as possible after the session if you have fallen in or been splashed and need to ensure any open cuts are covered (please note that under Cover 19 restrictions we do not have access to shower facilities at Paddington).

    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.
