Paddleboarding Lessons

Our lessons are designed to give you the confidence to paddle independently or to take you to the next level if you’re already paddling well

Generally this lesson includes both fundamental personal paddling and safety & rescue skills.

On completion you’ll be able to paddle efficiently and effectively in a range of conditions.

You’ll leave equipped with skills to ensure your own safety and that of others, and with appropriate rescue skills to help yourself and others in difficulty.

Where We Teach

When learning, the correct conditions are essential for enjoyment, safety and progression, for that reason we have chosen the canal at Apperley Bridge as our main location. 

It provides the perfect learning environment with stunning views, lots to explore and is generally sheltered from the wind and so works in nearly all weather conditions. 

It also has plenty of parking, a great cafe and a friendly atmosphere.

Want A Lesson Closer To You Or In A Special Location?

We are a mobile school and can travel so if you would like a lesson in another location, just get in touch and let us know where and we’ll see if we can make it happen.

We also offer British Canoeing Paddle Start and Paddle Explore courses. These are fully certificated courses in which you will learn plenty of the skills and knowledge you need to become an independent paddler. It’s a great way to learn and pick up a nationally recognised award at the same time.
