SUP & SOCIAL DISTANCING

In light of the current COVID19 situation, there are a few extra precautions which I have introduced to your lesson.

1) Anyone showing any symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted to participate in activities
2) If you, or any of the members of your household display any symptoms of COVID-19 in the 14 days leading up to your lesson, please contact me to reschedule.
3) The board and paddle you will be using will be spray-disinfected before use.
4) Recommended safe social distances will be maintained during the activity.
5) If self distancing cannot be maintained, PPE is provided to help mitigate any potential spread.

This session is ideal as an introduction to stand up paddle boarding (SUP) or simply to escape from life for a couple of hours and get away from the crowds and modern distractions.

You will learn the basics of SUP, enough to get you standing up and paddling independently within about 15 minutes. The rest of the lesson, you will be easing in to your new mode of transport and feeling more comfortable as you progress.

Starting from Eccleston Ferry, we paddle south behind the private Grosvenor estate, where we leave the world behind and explore places only accessible from the water. We'll paddle as far as we can before stopping for a short break to get off our boards and give your legs a little rest. Then we'll head back to the start to complete the session.

Photos will be taken throughout the lesson for you to share your new found SUP skills with friends and family.

Sessions are weather dependent but do still happen if there is rain. They will be rescheduled if necessary due to heavy rain high winds.
