Group lessons are the easiest (and most cost effective) way to learn to paddleboard and a great way to meet other people. If you want to work on a specific skill or have a more personalised package, check out our 1-1 lessons. All safety equipment is provided. All our group lessons except have a minimum age of 8 years old. What we do – The River lesson will cover all safety aspects of paddle boarding and use of the inland waterway. This group is for paddlers who have mastered standing up and are able to control the board. You might be looking to learn or establish more advance manoeuvres, including more advance turns and more advance paddle techniques. This is ideal for those preparing for more adventurous outings such as long river tours. We like to mix up our lessons and incorporate games and challenges to push paddlers abilities through out all of our lessons. By the end of the lesson you will understand the hazards associated with the sport and paddling. These River sessions will cover all the additional safety aspects of paddling on a River and slow flowing waters, including how to identify hidden hazards and navigating flowing water.
