Experience the tranquillity of paddleboarding during this taster session in Warwickshire. You’ll learn the skills needed to get to grips with Stand Up Paddleboarding (or SUP) from experienced instructors, so you’re sure to pick up this awesome water sport in no time at all.
Your paddleboarding experience begins when you meet your instructor and the rest of your group at the boating centre on the River Leam. You’ll get kitted out with all the equipment needed and learn the basic techniques of paddleboarding before getting out on the water. Then it’s time to put theory into practise as you test your balance and try standing up on your board. You’re instructor will be on hand to help at every step (and wobble!) of the way. Once you’re feeling confident, you will paddle down the calm stretch of river, taking in the picturesque Victorian gardens and nature reserve on your journey.
