Meet your team of instructors and SUP Yoga teachers.
Paddleboarding London specialises in offering paddleboard tuition, tours and SUP Yoga for individuals, groups and corporate settings. From our home base in Camden and new location at St Katharine Docks near Tower Bridge we have taught hundreds of people from all over the world how to paddle. We were the original founders of SUP Yoga sessions at Wilderness Festival and provided SUP & SUP Yoga at the annual We Work Summer Camp at Eridge Park. We were also ranked one of the Top 5 Yoga Experiences in London from MTV UK.
Our work supports The Pirate Castle in Camden, a charity focussed on teaching water sports to children. We support the charity through financial contributions (£2 per board per session is donated) as well as a portion of our annual profits.
Jennifer teaches paddleboarding & paddleboard yoga. She was introduced to SUP from a fellow yoga teacher and dear friend and fell in love with the combination of nature and wellbeing. She’s usually better recognised as the owner of Clyde, the SUP pup who is frequently photographed on his tours of London canals.

Vicky is a keen paddle boarder and is passionate about the mental health benefits of the sport. Vicky is an ASI qualified sup instructor and loves to be able to get those new to paddle boarding out onto the water, up onto their feet and smiling! As Vicky works for the RSPB as her day job, she loves to share sightings of birds and wildlife along the way, you never know what you might see so keep your eyes peeled!
Tilda has been paddling since March 2019 during a family visit to Spain. She instantly fell in love, as well as in the water..a lot! When she returned to London she took her BSUPA Ready to Ride, and Thames Skills certificate, before signing up for the BSUPA Level 1 instructor training in March 2020.
In her day job, Tilda works for London’s largest food distribution charity, The Felix Project which believes in a vision of London where no-one goes hungry and good food is never wasted.
Fabienne took to paddleboarding a few years ago to balance her day job of running a hair salon in Richmond. She loves the feeling of peace and tranquillity being on the water creates. It also gives her a connection to nature in a busy city. Ask Fabienne about her favourite SUP destinations. She has paddled in some incredible places.
Lesley started paddleboarding a few years ago after a taster session on the River Great Ouse in Bedford, her local river. She fell in love with paddleboarding straightaway and after spending as much time as she could on the river and attending different SUP courses and clinics, she decided to go for her ASI Level 1 SUP Instructor Qualification. After completing her shadowing hours at Paddleboarding London, she passed with flying colours.
