Stand up Paddleboarding Courses
The water sport that is taking this past year by storm!
If you fancy trying something new and exciting then Stand Up Paddleboarding is the activity for you!
This easy and versatile sport offers our customers a fun and exciting way to experience the water. We have courses suitable for a range of ages and abilities, paddleboarding involves standing on a surf-style board whilst using a long paddle to propel yourself through the water.
Session Type: Beginner
Duration: 3 Hours (arrivals to farewells)
Water Body: Sheltered Water
Minimum Age: 10 years (accompanied by an adult)
What’s Involved –
Our intro sessions are ideal for those who are new to paddleboarding or for individuals who want to build a little confidence in the sport. Taking place on either the canal or a sheltered area of the river (weather dependant), your SUP instructor will give you an intro to the board and during the session you will learn basic skills and develop correct paddling techniques in manoeuvring the paddleboard, how to mount and dismount safely, along with playing a few games to put these newly learned skills to the test.
Session Type: Beginner to Intermediate
Duration: Full Day (approx 6-8 Hours – arrivals to farewells)
Water Body: Trip on either on the River Wye or Canal (water level dependant)
What’s Involved –
Already tried a bit of paddleboarding and looking for the next challenge? Want to improve your skills, learn about travelling safely on moving water, or just want to meet like-minded folks while having fun exploring the River Wye? Then our Paddleboard Adventure session is the thing for you!
Our SUP Adventure will see you take a journey along the beautiful River Wye, exploring the unspoilt stretch of water between Glasbury & Whitney-on-Wye, under the guidance of one of our experienced and knowledgable guides. Throughout your journey you’ll learn ways to improve your paddling skills, learn basic techniques on reading the water, how to break in/out of eddies and pass over slow water rapids safely. Your instructor will be with you every step of the way to encourage you in areas you feel need help with, building your confidence in your paddling abilities.
