  • Beeston - Nottingham

About This Activity

An introduction to paddleboarding in a relaxed and supportive environment. Dates available July 7th plus Thursdays & Sundays through out August 2024. WHY IS THIS SESSION FOR WOMEN ONLY? From experience I have found that many of my students feel comfortable with asking questions, able to relax and learn at a pace which feels comfortable within women only groups. WHAT DO WE COVER? START includes how to carry your SUP, understanding leash safety, adjusting the paddle length for your height, getting safely on and off your board, an introduction to controlling your board and standing. Plus a few tips on SUP safety, canal etiquette and time to relax and enjoy being on the water. This session is accredited by Paddle UK (formerly British Canoeing) which means you will receive a certificate for taking part. WHERE DO WE MEET? Beeston Canal - nearest postcode for location is NG9 1LZ. Meeting point will be sent to you nearer to your session date. HOW LONG IS THE SESSION? Up to 1.5 hours including safety briefing and instruction. WHO IS IT FOR? For women - 18 years plus. DO I NEED PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE? No previous experience required. DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SWIM? You must be confident in a natural water environment (canal, river or lake) and able to swim a minimum of 25 metres. I AM AFRAID OF MAKING A FOOL OF MYSELF! Don’t be! This will be at your pace in a kind and supportive environment. The great thing about paddle boarding is you don't even have to stand up!! If you want to sit or kneel - fabulous! WHY IS THIS GROUP KEPT TO A MAXIMUM OF TWO? By keeping my groups small, I can support you individually, answer all your questions, develop your paddling skills and make sure you come off the water smiling, relaxed and feeling confident! WHAT EQUIPMENT DO I PROVIDE? Board, quick release waist leash, buoyancy aid, paddle and wetsuit. HOW MUCH DOES IT COST? £49.00 pp. ARE THERE FACILITIES? There is access to a nearby toilet and cafe's for post paddle food and drink. I recommend you come ready to get on the water or you can use my van. NOT SURE WHETHER YOU HAVE ENOUGH STRENGTH, BALANCE OR MOBILITY? Please do get in touch prior too booking and let's have a chat about how best I can support you.
