For each session, there are 3 places available. 3 places has been specifically reserved.


Join us for a 1.5 hour paddleboarding lesson. Based on British Canoeing's SUP sheltered water skills you will learn how to safely and confidently stand and paddle.

The lesson will cover equipment, getting on and off the board, basic paddle technique and include a short canal tour to get you ready for longer trips.

This is an ideal session if you are RUSTY, UNFIT or NEW to stand-up paddleboarding! On successful completion of this lesson you will be able to join one of our longer canal tours.


Dress in the clothes you’d wear for a yoga/Pilates class – leggings and layers. We recommend that you wear beach shoes or wetsuit booties, but old trainers (with soft soles) are OK. We don’t recommend bare feet.

Jeans and flip flops are not suitable for this paddleboarding lesson.

Sometimes people do fall into the water so bring a towel and some spare clothes just in case. We’ll supply a buoyancy aid. If it’s sunny please bring a hat and suncream and remember to drink enough water.


SUP is an outdoor sport, so if it is raining, we will still go paddling! Please wear suitable clothing (eg, a waterproof jacket) and bring spare clothes to change into after the session.


On rare occasions (especially when it is extremely windy and there are weather warnings) we reserve the right to cancel and reschedule your session. However, we are constantly looking at the weather reports/sky so we will aim to share this info 24 hours before your planned session. We are on the water a lot so keep an eye on your email rather than phoning us.
