EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW
WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?
Wear light, comfy clothes you can move easily in, leggings or shorts are perfect. You can either paddle barefoot or in light trainers. Be prepared to get your clothes and shoes a bit wet/mucky!
DO I NEED A CERTAIN LEVEL OF FITNESS TO PADDLEBOARD?
Paddleboarding is for everyone, we will go at your pace during the session. Do let me know if you cant swim or are a weak/ nervous swimmer.
WHAT SHOULD I BRING?
We suggest you bring some water, ideally in a re-usable bottle, no single use plastic please. Dry bags will be provided for your belongings, these are not massive so pack light as there are no storage facilities.
WHERE DO WE PADDLE?
Lessons are held in Surbiton and Teddington. The launch point details will be emailed to you. The stretch of water we paddle on is between Teddington Lock and Hampton Court Palace.
WHAT ABOUT THE ENVIRONMENT?
If you are interested in doing a river cleanup paddle or including this into your session just let us know. Looking after the river we paddle on is all part of the fun.
WHAT FACILITIES ARE THERE?
There are no changing or toilet facilities at the launch point. There is ample parking and the train station is only a short walk. There are plenty of bars, cafes and restaurants nearby should you wish to go for a celebratory 'I didnt fall in!' drink afterwards.
