This is a Taster Session to give people new to the sport of Paddle Boarding a try out of paddling on a board and hopefully standing up. You will be given safety instructions and river knowledge. The equipment and how to use it will be described.
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.
You will be given a buoyancy aid, the board and paddle, shown how to use it. 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 and having a lot of fun!
