Spring is nearly here and we’ve got lots of great opportunities for you to get out on the water with us.
We’re just over a month away from our weekend away in Amsterdam. This 3-day trip is perfectly positioned to take advantage of the spring-like weather and catch tulip season in full bloom. We’ll be making the most of the urban canals as well as visiting the local city beach. With ample opportunity to tack on extra time before or after our SUP sessions, we have just a FEW spaces left – find out more and book your place here.
Our schedule will expand in April with sessions starting at St Katharine Docks and more days/times available in Camden and Hackney. This year we’re introducing more sessions for non-beginners, or those who have a basic knowledge of paddling. These sessions are an opportunity to be on the water quicker, travel further and also the option to work on specific skills. Look for sessions marked: Speed & Endurance, Skills and our standard Social paddles. See the full schedule here.

Topics include: paddling faster & straighter, moving around the board, mastering turns, race skills and paddle tricks. See the full schedule here.
