We’ll cover all the basics from turning on the spot and steering through to maintain a straight line and paddle efficiently.

Frequently Asked Questions

Not at all! This course is tailored to beginner level.

Absolutely! Children can participate, but will need an adult to participate with them. Exceptionally small children and under 6’s can are Free to join but must share the board with their parent/guardian or responsible nominated adult.

Comfortable swimwear or quick-drying athletic wear is ideal, along with trainers you don’t mind getting wet. Remember to bring a change of clothes for after the session, just in case! We don’t currently offer wetsuits, but you are welcome to bring one if you would be most comfortable that way.

Yes, we provide all necessary SUP equipment, through our Paddle Hire service, including the paddle board and buoyancy aids.

Our SUP beginner course generally last for 3 hours. However, if you have any special requests, just let us know in the comments section when you book and we will do our best to accommodate.

Safety is our priority. If weather conditions are deemed unsafe, we will reschedule your session or offer a refund. However, a bit of rain won’t stop us!

Definitely! We cater to individual bookings as well as group outings and team-building events. Just let us know about the needs of your group, and we will tailor the session to you.

This course will ideally need at least 2, ideally 4, people to run. Sorry private 1:1 coaching comes at a premium.

You must be comfortable with potentially falling off your paddleboard wearing a buoyancy aid, and you should be able to comfortably transition from kneeling to standing. You will enjoy the session with a basic level of fitness, but it is suitable for most! Please just leave us a note on your booking if you are unsure and we are happy to guide you.

Unfortunately, we do not provide flotation devices for dogs at this stage and we would not feel comfortable putting your pet at risk. If you are a beginner, we definitely do not recommend bringing your dog as a dog constantly moving around on the board will make the challenge even harder to start with. If you really want to ‘SUP with your Pup’ then that can be arranged for a private booking or come to one of longer day trips intended for intermediate paddlers, however you will be required to provide your own doggy flotation device. Please let us know in the comments on your booking if you are hoping to bring your dog along, and we will discuss how we can accommodate this.

Although we anticipate that you will get wet on this activity, we try to avoid purposeful immersion in the water where at all possible. Canals are also notoriously unpredictable underwater with rubble and debris from the industrial days from shopping trolleys to push bikes thrown in by local youths, also cold-water shock and hypothermia are real problems we want to avoid.

Barefoot gives the best connection with the board that you could ever want however, we do not know what is lurking under the surface and we would like to keep you as protected as possible. In our experience it is much nicer to walk across the gravel towpaths alongside the canals with proper footwear than barefoot anyday.

Extras / Options

New to paddle boarding, wanting to learn the basics, but still don’t own your own equipment. Our Board Hire has you covered. It includes the board, paddle, quick release leash & belt, helmet (where required), buoyancy aid, dry box for your essentials, canal & waterways access licence and third party liability insurance.
