Stand Up Paddle BoardIng Lessons & Rentals
We love paddleboarding! The beauty of this activity is that it is a great entry level sport and perfect for everyone. Where surfing meets canoeing, you stand or kneel on a board with a paddle to guide and steer you. It’s a really fun and exhilarating way to enjoy being out on the water in the fresh sea air.
Who Is it for?
Anyone is welcome to join. This class is great for a family outing and we can organise every age to be on the water with you. If you want it just for the kids, then we recommend children of 10 years and older when a parent is not on the water.
We find this activity perfect for those wanting some solitude and also perfect for those who want to feel part of a group having fun. We ask everyone to complete a lesson with us first to learn all about how to paddle correctly, learn a small bit on tides and wind so you can better understand the safety element and most importantly we teach you how to self-rescue and get back on the board if you decide to go for a swim .
The stand up paddle
Your stand up paddle boarding class lasts for 90 minutes. Please arrive 15 minutes early to prep. The session starts with a lesson on the beach where we go through basic paddling and safety.
Then all the action happens on the water. Your instructor will teach you how to manoeuvre, some self-rescue techniques, We add in information on weather and tide for safety. Then we head off to explore the coast. Your instructor is with you for 60 minutes and then we leave you alone for the remaining 30 minutes to have some fun on your own.
If you’re not barefoot then you are overdressed
