Beginner Improvement

Thames Ditton
sup - Up to 4 people


This class is for people who have paddled before and need to borrow a board for the session or for board owners who are looking to improve their stability when standing up and their paddle stroke to be more efficient. It will include safety advice about the river and how to keep yourself safe. All should be able to Stand up and stop their board safely.

What to bring

Please bring your board and buoyancy aid if you have one.

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.

In colder weather, a wetsuit or drysuit would be advisory.

Always bring a towel and a change of clothes just in case you go in during the paddle boarding session.

Please arrive early enough to pump up your board. Ideally 20 minutes before the lesson starts.


You should have your own board and been out on it at least once. Have a reasonable balance and a sense of adventure.


You will be given a buoyancy aid if you don't have one. You will be shown around your board and paddle and how to use them. You will be taught about safety and how the river works, all before entering the water. On the water you will put into practice what you learn on land. Hopefully, within the hour, you will be standing up, paddling with confidence and having a lot of fun!
