Learn to Paddleboard sessions, River Severn Shrewsbury
We welcome children, adults, families and organised groups.
Stand-Up Paddleboarding is great fun, very user-friendly and offers an exhilarating means to get out on the water.
SUP start-up will help you begin your transformation: you’ll discover new skills, thrills, maybe occasional spills and how to stay water safe.
Your coach works with you to create a safe, rewarding and fun learning environment. Using a variety of games, challenges and tasks, you’ll transform and gain SUPer powers!
The sensation of gliding as you paddle standing on a board makes SUP distinctive, almost akin to walking on water and from this elevated position you gain a whole new perspective of your surroundings.
By the completion of the session you will have a basic understanding of SUP and be able to: select suitable clothing and equipment; get your board to and from the water; get on and off the water safely; paddle in a straight line; turn and manoeuvre; be able to deal with a spill; a basic understanding of water etiquette and have a great plan for your next adventure!
What to wear.
All specialist equipment provided including wetsuits.
Please bring; a rash vest or t-shirt and shorts for under the wetsuit, old trainers or similar, capable of staying on your feet in the event of a spill! Oh, and a towel.
