This is all part of the fun. The main thing is not to panic; you’re attached to a big float which you’ll be able to climb back on to relatively easily. If you have any problems, your instructor will be there with you to help.

The paddles float, don’t worry! Try to retrieve it quickly, you will be able to manoeuvre your board using your hands. Your instructor will be there to lend a hand if you have any problems.
