  • Description

    Paddle together on our Red Paddle Co XL Ride paddleboard and create lots of fun memories on the water this summer! With space on board for 3-8 people, enjoy an hour of group paddling along the River Leven towards the foot of Lake Windermere.

    Work together on your group skills and co-ordination, or simply create your own fun - expect to get wet and laugh A LOT! You can comfortably sit, kneel or stand - even eat your packed lunch or sunbathe on it while you take turns paddling.

    Due to its popularity, we offer 1 hour slots on the XL Ride to allow more people to have a go throughout the day, but if you wish to paddle for longer; just simply book consecutive slots (if available).

    Minimum booking = 3 people

    Maximum = 8 people

    All children under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult. The maximum ratio per adult is 1:3, meaning 4 children must be accompanied by 2 adults on board the XL Ride.

    Buoyancy aids must be worn at all times.



    Requirements

    Participants must be able to swim at least 50 metres. If you are hiring from our Paddle Hut, we will always give a safety and basic skills briefing to ensure you feel confident and safe before heading out on the water, but you must be a competent swimmer.

    Anyone under 18 years old wishing to hire a paddleboard must have an adult accompanying them out on the water at all times.


    What to bring

    You will need to plan for all weathers and ultimately expect to get wet! You may or may not fall into the water, but it is always better to be prepared.

    Always bring a towel and a spare set of dry clothes and shoes. If you have your own wetsuit then you are welcome to bring it (particularly in the cooler months when the water temperature is a lot lower) or wear clothes suitable for being on the water, i.e., swimsuit, shorts, t-shirt, leggings, gym wear, waterproof, wind-shell jacket, etc. (Avoid denim, thick hoodies or jogging bottoms that will get heavy when wet.) We do have some wetsuits available to hire, but please be aware that this is on a first-come first-serve basis as we have a limited amount, so correct sizes may not be available. Please always bring other suitable clothing to wear as a back-up option.

    If you are happy and warm enough in bare feet then that is absolutely fine, but footwear, such as swim shoes or old trainers, can be useful as our launch slipway and river/lake shores are quite rocky underfoot.

    Additional items you may like to bring depending on the weather:

    1. warm hats
    2. extra layer
    3. hard shell waterproof to shield from wind/rain
    4. sun cap
    5. sun cream
    6. bottled water
    7. neoprene booties/gloves
    8. other items may also be required, although please note items such as sunglasses may be lost if you fall in the water!

    Your valuables, such as car keys and phone, will obviously need to be protected, so a waterproof bag/phone case is good to bring along. If you do not have a bag then we will happily look after your items, but all valuables whether kept on land or on board are done so at your own risk.

    Drinks and snacks are also a great essential to take with you, especially bottled water on hot days.


    Itinerary

    Participants will start their session on land with a safety briefing and introduction into paddleboarding demonstrating the basic skills.

    When everyone is comfortable and ready to go we will carry the board slowly into the shallow water. Here the group will get on the board and practice paddling while kneeling before heading further out along the river to try standing up.

    Enjoy an hour of fun paddling together as a group before heading back to base.
