Have a splash on the River Soar with the UK's fastest growing watersport.

Our paddleboards are like large surf boards – you can lie down and use your hands, kneel on them and paddle them like a canoe or stand up and use our longer paddles designed especially for this innovative sport.

As you progress you will learn how to paddle in a straight line, spin around and improve your balance as you move around your board.

There are lots of games to play on the individual boards as well as our giant boards (the Mega SUP) that the whole group can get on and paddle down the river as a team.
