You will be asked to complete a health declaration.

The session starts at 18:00, with putting on a buoyancy aid (mandatory) before a safety briefing and introduction to the kit.

There is a land demo followed by short on the water demo of the three key stages of paddleboarding which are, prone, kneeling and standing. 

Once the group has mastered the basics, there will be a short trip around the lake to practice the basic techniques before an introduction to new techniques, developing the paddle strokes, counter balance, recovery stroke, core stroke and advanced turns. These techniques will be used to paddle further and faster and when developing tighter turns.

There will be a test of paddle skills and the opportunity to practice all the skills learnt before returning to shore for a debrief and discussion on next stages for developing your skills.
