Paddleboard Hire in Central London – Experienced Paddlers Only 

Grab your gang and get in board.  With more and more experienced paddlers in London we knew it was time to start offering the option for hire-only of our boards.  For 2024 we’re introducing board hire from our Islington location.  You can hire boards for one hour, for half a day or for a full day.  There is the option for longer hire (if you would like to take a board away with you for a weekend etc) just get in touch to find out more.

This is for experienced paddlers only.  You must show that you have basic competence on a board including the ability to stand/get back down to knees without guidance, paddle in a straight line and turn, avoid hazards and self-rescue.  You can do this by becoming a Plus or Premium club member (which includes board hire discounts) and we’ll test your SUP knowledge or equivalent experience (eg a Ready 2 Ride or Paddle UK SUP Safer course). 

Explore more in your own time, we can help guide you on how far you might go in your hire time. 

Available from end of May. 



  • Board, leash, paddle and PFD (buoyancy aid)
  • Changing rooms and secure storage for valuables
  • Shower facilities and separate male & female toilets
  • Full safety briefing, kit familiarisation and weather condition checks


Plus and Premium club members can book directly on the schedule.  If you are not a club member you will need to email us to request to book.  Once you are approved as an experienced paddler you can book for the rest of the 2024 season without having to request each time. 

Paddleboarding hire is offered Saturday and Sunday from Islington (full schedule TBC in early May)

*Please see the T&Cs for conditions of cancelling/rescheduling

It can, and often does, rain quite a bit in London. As an outdoor activity provider that operates from April – October, we do continue to hold lessons in wet weather when it is safe to do so. This policy outlines our weather, cancellation and rescheduling policy which is strictly enforced and forms a part of our standard booking agreement.


We monitor the weather daily to actively ensure that we can operate under safe conditions. If the forecast is looking questionable we will take a final decision 24 hours before any session start time, based on the Met Office forecast and the following criteria:

High probability for heavy rain (eg 90% chance of heavy rain during the session time)
Constant wind speeds ≥15mph
Wind gusts ≥ 30 mph
In cases where we deem it necessary to cancel a session we will contact you by email and/or mobile to reschedule your session. If you are not able to provide a date to reschedule we will issue you a voucher, valid for 12 months, to rebook at another time. Refunds may be requested but the default position is to reschedule all bookings.


By booking a session with us online (including use of gift vouchers) or by paying for a booking through online invoice you are indicating you have read and accept these terms.


We allow bookings to be rescheduled for any reason with 72+ hours notice. You can manage your booking by using the link sent on your booking confirmation and changing your scheduled date/time. After this time, all bookings are considered final and there is no rescheduling, however you may make substitutions at any time.

We do operate a waiting list and we are sometimes able to fill spaces with last minute availability, so if you are unable to attend and wish us to open the spaces to others please get in touch. If we do fill the spaces we will issue you with a voucher code to rebook at another time but there is no guarantee that we will be able to fill the spaces.


If you need assistance rescheduling your booking please email us (rather than call) as we need the request in writing and we’re often able to make the necessary changes faster.

If you wish us to try to fill your spaces with last minute availability please email us (rather than call) as we need the request in writing and we’re often able to make the necessary changes faster.


In the event of an enforced Government lockdown due to a pandemic on the date of your booking, Paddleboarding London reserves the right to provide you with a voucher code for use of the services on another date for when the lockdown has been lifted and Paddleboarding London is able to operate normally.
