Description

The waterways of London are great places for activity, relaxation and getting in touch with nature. However, in places they are blighted by litter and in particular plastic waste. This is part of a worldwide problem. Much of the litter ends up in the open ocean, it is ingested by fish and marine mammals and enters the food chain. Plastic pollution is a growing problem around the world and right here in London. Plastic, particularly single use plastic, threatens the health of our rivers, lakes, oceans, marine life and eventually human life. We want to create a cleaner, healthier environment to benefit all of us. Are you on board?

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 Health & safety briefing at our base in Paddington Basin, before getting onto water to paddle and clean our amazing waterway from paddington basin through iconic London landmarks such as Little Venice and back.


*How far we get depends upon the conditions on the day.
