Intro to Paddle Boarding - Youth


Are you thinking about purchasing a paddle board? Fancy giving it a go for the very first time? Why not sign up for the Intro to Paddle Boarding and learn the basics of paddling. Our qualified instructors will show you how to control your craft and how to stay safe on the water. Once you have mastered the basics, you will head off on an adventure to explore the reservoir and participate in games and challenges to put your new paddling skills to the test!

Important: Minimum age to participate is 8 years old and maximum age is 16 years old, however, a parent or guardian (18+) must remain on site for the duration and help aid kitting up and de-kitting at the start and end of the session.  

Llys y Fran will provide all the necessary personal protective clothing including wetsuits, buoyancy aids and each participant will be issued a paddle board.

We welcome you to use your own paddle board, however, a member of our staff will inspect all your equipment to ensure it is safe. This will include:

Paddle Boards:

  1. Inflated to the recommended PSI.
  2. No visible damages (scrapes and gauges).
  3. De lamination.
  4. Appropriate for user.
