Introduction To Stand Up Paddleboarding Family Session
Scaling Dam is a wonderful place for paddling, there are little coves to stop for a drink and cool your toes in the water, there are also breezes to challenge the more experienced Paddler. There is a safety boat and our Instructors carry VHF radios.
Learn the basics of Sup in this two hour Introduction session with a British Canoe Union Qualified Instructor. Learn how set your paddle, carry, and launch your board, learn to paddle and you will be standing up in no time!
Stand up paddling is a great sport and accessible to all, but you must be able to swim 25 meters, be able to stand from kneeling without using your hands and to be able to self rescue, a good test is if you can exit the deep end of a swimming pool without using the steps.
We provide boards, wetsuits and Personal Floatation Devices. You just need a towel, warm clothes to change into, a drink and hopefully sun screen!
