Pangbourne to Goring - Learn to SUP

sup - Up to 12 people


If you have never tried paddleboarding before or you are very new to it, this one day trip will allow you to:

  1. learn essential SUP skills with expert coaching
  2. practise at your own pace in slow flowing clean water
  3. learn about SUP equipment and try out different types of high quality boards and paddles
  4. discover parts of the Upper Thames
  5. enjoy a tranquil marine environment away from the city rush
  6.  meet like minded people
  7. start and finish the day in one of the best and most historic pubs on the Thames ( it features in Jerome K. Jerome's 'Three Men in a Boat' and allegedly in 1968 Robert Plant and Jimmy Page formed Led Zeppelin there!)
  8. we will aim to finish the day with a meal at The Swan (this is optional but we can highly recommend the food and service)

Returning paddlers trained by Active360 get a £20 discount on this trip.

Take this chance to get away from London for one day into a beautiful location just 1 hr away by train from London Paddington. Train ticket to Pangbourne from London Paddington will cost you between £21-25.

We are aiming to be on the water by 11.30am the latest.

If you are running late be sure to give us a call.

Of course, you are welcome to arrive earlier and have a coffee or brunch while you are waiting to get on the water.
