Your questions answered...

Where do I meet you for my course?

All information of where to meet for your particular course will be on your confirmation email which we will send you once you have booked. Venues we regularly use are the world heritage site Llangollen Canal and the River Dee. The 'find us' tab in the top menu bar shows our Stand Up Paddle board UK Office, so make sure you read where to meet on your confirmation email before you leave.

Will I get wet?

It is totally up to you. Most first timers stay completely dry bar their feet and the odd splash. Our boards are very stable so there is no need to worry about falling in. No guarantees though!

What should I wear?

For all water activities please bring a pair of old trainers or wetshoes and swimwear for under your wetsuit. We provide wetsuits for both flat water and white water courses although it is optional for flat water. If you have your own wetsuit that you'd like to wear, feel free to. If you choose not to wear a wetsuit, wear lightweight clothing, synthetic fabric is best, no Jeans and avoid other heavy materials. Bring some wind and water proof clothing, unless it's a beautifully sunny day, in which case you might want to wear a t-shirt and shorts! It's always best to be prepared for unlikely weather though.

Whichever course you are on don't forget your spare change of clothes for after the course!

Do I need good balance?

Our boards are designed to be very stable. If you are a little unsure on your feet you can always start on your knees and progress to a standing position. Most people who begin on their knees are upright and standing within 10 minutes!

For more information on our white water boards see the Rapid Fire Review.

Do I need to bring any safety gear?

We will have all of the safety equipment you'll need, from PFD's (personal flotation devices) to helmets, to quick release waist leashes (on white water).

Can children attend the courses?

Yes! Children are very welcome on our courses.

For Flat Water paddle boarding the minimum age to attend is 8. All under 18's must have a parent or guardian present at the course (they do not have to join in!)

For White Water paddle boarding courses the minimum age is 16, under 18's must have a parent or guardian taking part in the course.

For archery the minimum age is 5. Under 18's must have an adult present.

Is there parking nearby?
