About This Activity

START is an introduction to stand up paddle boarding for women wanting to build their confidence on the water, relax and have fun in a kind, supportive environment. WHY IS THIS SESSION FOR WOMEN ONLY? From experience, I find women feel more confident to ask questions, relax and able to learn at a pace that 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/off your board and of course, learning to paddle including stopping, turning and paddling in a straight line. Plus a few tips on SUP safety and of course, lots of time to relax and enjoy being on the water! This session is accredited by British Canoeing which means you will receive a certificate just for taking part! HOW LONG IS THE SESSION? Up to 2 hours including safety briefing and instruction. WHO IS IT FOR? Women only - 18 years plus. DO I NEED PREVIOUS EXPERIENCE? No previous paddling experience needed. DO I NEED TO BE ABLE TO SWIM? With water-based activities, all participants must be confident in an open water environment and able to swim 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 FOUR? Women often tell me that paddle boarding has long been on their bucket list but, they have struggled to find the right course, environment, or instructor that 'speaks' to them. For some, having tried paddle boarding within larger groups, report how they now feel less confident, doubt themselves and are now looking for support that is tailored to their needs. By keeping my groups small (only a maximum of four women in a group), 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? £45.00 per person. This does not include your water fee (£7.00 - payable to the centre on arrival) or car parking . WHERE DO I DELIVER THE SESSION? Holme Pierrepont Country Park. Nottingham.
