Paddle Her Way is for women - whether you are looking to have your very first go on a SUP or wanting to progress & develop your paddling skills. This event is for you!
Join Sarah Blues from Plus Size Paddler, Emma Kitchen from Wilde Adventure and Emma Love from Wotbikini Stand Up Paddleboarding on the 20th & 21st May 2023 for 'Paddle Her Way' - Nottingham.
The sessions are on a secluded & private lake at Holme Pierrepont Country Park.
Paddle Her Way is where you can ask questions, develop your paddling and have lots of fun on the water within a safe & supportive community of women.
Perhaps you are wanting to increase your confidence on and off the water? Wanting to find a technique to help you get back on your board? Wanting a greater understanding of the paddle strokes we use to move your board effectively & efficiently?
The sessions are with the focus on you! We want you to leave feeling confident with your paddling and great about paddle boarding.
Paddle Her Way - designed by women for women.
Sarah Blues is a British Canoeing #ShePaddles & Red Ambassador & founder of #PaddleKitHerWay. Known on social media as @plussizepaddler, Sarah's SUP journey made her realise being a size18 -20 was no barrier to participating in paddleboarding and that her body is strong & capable.
Talking to women, Sarah realised that many also perceived their body shape and size as a big barrier too engaging & enjoying sport. And finding paddling kit that fitted wasn't just an issue for larger bodies but for all women. From this, #PaddleKitHerWay was founded.
Each year, Sarah teams up with women SUP Coaches & Leaders from around the UK to provide 'four' Paddle Her Way events. And we are thrilled to have her join us in Nottingham for the East Midlands 2023 event!
