The ultimate way to get started

The perfect way to get started if you’re a curious beginner! Get out on the water and give paddleboarding a go on one of our taster sessions. Our aim is to give you all the information and experience you need to decide if you would like to invest further in the sport.

It’s fun and a lot easier than you think! The session will be led by one of our qualified in-house instructors. This is your chance to pick their brain and ask as many questions as you want!

Please remember these sessions are for newcomers to sample the sport. If you are wanting to learn skills or want to learn something specific then please look at our other courses.

We are based right on the end of the Exeter canal, providing us with a fantastic location with calm, still waters. You will be on the water for most of the session, which will include paddling and some bank based coaching. There will also be time to go through the equipment and kayaks we have on display in the shop.

What we will cover in the taster session:

  • Equipment
  • Launching and landing
  • Basic strokes and skills
  • Safety

There is always the potential for getting wet, we recommend:

  • A wetsuit. If you have one bring yours, we can supply a shorty wetsuit for you to use.
  • Lightweight clothing such as gym wear, no heavy jumpers or jeans.
  • Footwear you are happy to get wet in and swim in. Wetsuit boots are ideal, flip flops are not.
