Kid's Taster Sessions

Weybridge
sup - Up to 6 people

Description

DPB (Dittons Paddle Boarding) is working with our partners Elmbridge Canoe Club to bring you a Kid's SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) Training.

This is a Taster Session to give under 18's 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. We will be working under the ECC Child Safety Policy and all our coaches are DBS checked.

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.

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.

Physical requirements

Your child should have a reasonable balance and be able to swim. Importantly, they should be strong enough to propel themselves through the water and climb back on their board if they fall in. Help will always be on had.

  1. Given equipment, including, board, leash, paddle and buoyancy aid
  2. Safety briefing, do's and don'ts
