Join in this latest craze and have some serious fun - its easier than it looks. During this winter period we are running private tuition but not self guided hire - this is purely for safety reasons. Please call our Windermere Canoe Kayak shop for further information 015394 44451.
Stand Up paddleboarding is the very latest craze in paddlesports. A SUP is a board (a bit like a surf board) on which you stand up. The board and a paddle are all you need. You will stand or kneel on the board and use the paddle to propel yourself through the water.
Our boards are very stable, but you might end up falling onto the board or landing in the water. If you do, you can use your board (which is attached to your leg by a leash) as a raft and simply climb back on. It doesn't take long to get going and once you do, exploring is easy.
Our hire sessions include some basic skills training and all the equipment you need.
Remember, its OK to fall in - all part of the fun!
2 hours £20
3 hours £25
Full day £35
If you are keen to try an activity for the very first time and would like just a quick 45 minute session you can book a Taster Session at Waterhead or Fell Foot from just £10 per person.
