Gutsy Girls Sessions -Bank holiday Mon

London
sup - Up to 20 people

Description

This stand up paddleboard session is suitable for beginners and adults of all abilities and ages. You will need to be able to swim and be confident in the water. Certain level of flexibility and ability to get up to standing from kneeling is required for learning to paddleboard.

You'll be sharing your instructor/s, but you'll be sure to meet some interesting people to add to the experience. The session will start with a safety briefing and some land-based training before heading out on the water for a guided tour. You'll be able to ask for technique advice and tips along the way. Don't be shy!


What to bring

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.

Physical requirements

you do not need to be a proficient swimmer, but should be comfortable about falling into water while wearing a buoyancy aid.


A certain level of flexibility and ability to get up to standing from kneeling is required for learning to paddleboard.


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.

Itinerary

The session will start with some land-based training at our base in Paddington Basin, before getting onto water and piercing through the heart of London on the Grand Union Canal. We will pass through iconic London landmarks such as Little Venice, Saint Mary Magdalene Church and Trellick Tower*. After stopping for a short break, we will return to base. You will have the opportunity to keep paddling during this break if preferred.
