    ​​We offer 2-hour 'ready to ride' lessons at our location where we take advantage of calm, protected waters and slow river traffic. It's also packed with wildlife!

    In this 2-hour lesson, you will learn about the paddle-board and paddle, you will move from kneeling on the board to standing up, learn paddle strokes, turns, tricks, have a few games and if time allows, you can try out a SUP rescue technique! If you complete the various parts of the session and you are 12+, you can also walk away with a "ready to SUP" card that shows that you can safely sup on inland waterways.

    During your time with us:

    1. Stand up paddleboard
    2. Paddle
    3. Safety Leash
    4. PFD / Buoyancy aids
    5. Wetsuits (£5 to hire)

    We can't promise you won't get wet!

    Customer Notice: You will be on the River Avon (between Bath and Bristol), which is home to various wildlife up and down the river. Like any other open-water source, please do your best not to ingest the water as there is a small risk that you could catch something as the river is accessed by the local wildlife. Should you feel ill after the session, please let us know asap so we can keep track of your progress. Should it worsen, please see your local GP and let them know you have been playing in the river so they can perform the correct medical checks.
