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.

Typical session structure
The session will start with an introduction to the session laying out what is to be expected, including an health and safety brief. Participants will then be given some coaching points that will aid their knowledge for the activity. Once coaching points have been achieved participants will then get onto the water, once water confidence is achieved instructors will lead games.
What to wear
Expect to get completely wet - full change of clothes required including shoes that stay on your feet and cover your toes.
