About this event

Explore Aberdeen's most unique water sports venue under the guidance of our trained Instructors who will introduce you to this fun sport, suitable for all skill levels and people aged 12 and above. Under 18s must be accompanied by an adult on the water.

The fastest growing paddle sport in the world which uses large, stable boards that will float you over the water while you use a paddle to propel yourself on your way. This is a brilliant way to experience what we have to offer on our very doorstep and it's a great way to squeeze in a fully body workout too!
