This session is only for returning Active 360 paddlers! If you are comfortable on a board and would like to paddle with less restrictions and a bit further than our standard SUP trips. Must have completed a minimum of one Active 360 session on the River Thames before joining this trip. If not you can join any of our other trips to get a bit more confidence before joining a SUP London session. This is a 3.5 - 4hr trip depending on how fast we paddle and how long we stop for.
No specialist clothing is required. In warm weather, ordinary gym gear will be fine (shorts/leggings/T-shirt/sweatshirt), with old sandals or trainers you don't mind getting wet. Or you can get cheap neoprene wet shoes from most large supermarkets. No bare feet, footwear is required at all our SUP locations.
In colder weather (November - March), a wetsuit would be advisory. We have wetsuits available if requested in advance. Always bring a towel and a change of clothes just in case you take a little dip during the SUP lesson.
Water and a packed lunch/snacks or money for refreshments are advised for this trip.
Only for confident paddlers!
You do not need to be a proficient swimmer, but should be comfortable about falling into water while wearing a buoyancy aid.
You will need to shower / wash thoroughly after the session if you have fallen in or been splashed and need to ensure any open cuts are covered.
We will also need to know of any recent injuries prior to the session.
We will start at Kew Bridge with a short safety brief/discussion. Then we will head out on the river with the outgoing tide towards Putney Bridge - this is the limit for paddlers who have not completed a minimum of TSK 1. We will stop for a break on the Putney foreshore just before Putney pier for refreshments whilst waiting for the tide to turn . Then we will return with the incoming tide back to Kew Bridge.
