Required

Let us know if you want to hire a wetsuit as we have some available for hire.

If you’re not familiar with the site, we ask that you arrive 20mins before your session so that we can get you booked in and for you to get changed and down to the lake.

What to bring

The most important thing to bring is a can-do attitude!

We have shower facilities on site and recommend showering after being in / on the water and all provide top quality boards and equipment.

You will need to bring:

  1. towel
  2. water bottle
  3. water shoes
  4. sunscreen (rec w/p F50)
  5. shorts / tee-shirt (Summer)
  6. wet suit (if you have one)
  7. snacks / food

Itinerary

On arrival you’ll be met and checked in by one of the team who’ll explain everything that’s going to happen.

You’ll be shown where to change and when ready you’ll have an introduction to the kit and a safety brief, then we’ll head down to the lake, warm up and get on the water.

We start slowly, getting you used to floating on a SUP and steering from a sitting / kneeling position.

We’ll then get you standing up, paddling forwards, turning and climbing back on.

We all fall in at some point, but the lake is shallow and we’re all trained to ensure you have a safe and fun time.
