Get Started with a taster session in either Canoe, Kayak or Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). You will experience your first 90 minute session on the water; learning the fundamental skills for an enjoyable time paddling. We will provide you with the basic knowledge and skills to enable you to get on the water safely and make your chosen craft move in all directions, with fun and games along the way.

After the session you will have gained your British Canoeing Paddle Start Award (and certificate!). The skills learnt in the session will make you feel safe and confident when out paddling with a group of more experienced paddlers.

The Start Award will give you the confidence to begin progressing towards making your own choices and paddling independently and acts as a great stepping stone into the PADDLE DISCOVER AWARD.

All Kit and Equipment is provided such as Wetsuits, Bouyancy Aids etc.
