  • Description

    Come join us for 2-hours of Paddle Boarding on a gentle stretch of the Leeds Liverpool Canal near Bingley & Saltaire. Test your balance and co-ordination to try and see if you have what it takes to "Stand-Up" on water.

    Paddle boarding has a high chance of getting wet from falling in, however our expert coaches and instructors are there to give you the tips, tricks and tools to maximise the experience and enjoyment. Although called Stand-Up Paddle Boarding or SUP for short, you can paddle these boards laying down, sitting, kneeling or even from a yoga pose if you can manage it, standing up is the not the only way to enjoy the sport. 

    Already done a spot of Paddleboarding before? We can adapt the sessions to suit your individual needs, but if you fancy progressing further in the sport, then why not check out our SUP Skills Club instead?


    Suitable for complete beginners and those still new to the sport who would like a little bit more of a taste, from ages 10* years and up.

    Under 18's must be accompanied on the water and are the responsibility of their respective parent/guardian at all times. 

    *Children under 10 years old are Free but must be on the same board as their parent/guardian/responsible adult and be able to fit into our smallest buoyancy aid. (Please contact us if you plan to bring your little one so we can advise on the size of our buoyancy aids).

    What to bring

    All activity equipment is provided including wetsuits and dry boxes for your phone and/or car keys; however, participants should come prepared in/with:

    1. Swimming costume/suit or clothing you don't mind getting wet. (No Cotton please)
    2. Securely fitting closed toe footwear.
    3. Change of Clothes & Towel/Changing Robe for the end.

    2. Waterproof Jacket & Trousers.

    We ask that you arrive ready to go, approximately 10-15 minutes before your booked activity time to provide maximum time on the water for your enjoyment.

    After introductions, getting kitted up and a safety brief, your instructor will introduce you to the sport of Stand Up Paddleboarding through the use of:

    1. Games
    2. Skills drills
    3. Challenges
    4. Rescues
    5. Paddling a short journey
    6. And answering any questions you may have.

    No two Intro to SUP sessions are the same as we adapt them to suit the needs of each participant as best we can, but you will find yourself wanting to come back for more!

    We look forward to seeing you on the water very soon and if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us by:
