Frequently Asked Questions

Do you have a range of sizes for wetsuits and shoes?
Yes absolutely we have enough sizes of kit for people of any shape and size.  Just bring swimwear and towels.

I don’t want to fall in and get wet.  Do I have to?
We wont make anyone do anything they are not happy to and the lessons are geared completely towards your own personal needs and preferences.  However, it’s more fun when you’re wet!

I have already been a few times before do I have to have a lesson?
Not at all we can also rent all of the equipment out for you to use on your own if you prefer.   However we only rent the kit if the conditions are suitable in the harbour for use without supervision and all equipment is hired at your own risk.

TESTIMONIALS

I can highly recommend the Paddle Boarding taster session. Wetsuits available to borrow, friendly staff, good session building confidence with some games and fun alongside instruction. Thoroughly enjoyed and great value for money.

Liz

Really friendly and helpful staff. Ian was so lovely and let us off to do own thing with a few tips! Perfect location in the cove to practice paddle boarding before heading out to sea. Highly recommend!

Caity

Great place, great staff very friendly and helpful. Definitely coming back

Karek Koziol

In a word- brilliant! We did a Stand Up Paddleboarding lesson with Ian and all really enjoyed it. Our crew of 4 adults and 6 kids ranging from 11 to 16 were all novices and only a couple of the kids had paddleboarded before. Ian was the perfect instructor; knowing how far to push us and no pressure on those that just wanted to stay on their feet. The wetsuits supplied meant that we didn't get cold. Would thoroughly recommend. If you're thinking about it - DO IT! Carpe diem!

Rob

We had a great time doing a paddle boarding taster session, the staff were all friendly and very helpful. Good venue and great prices. The staff put us at ease and had us paddle boarding in now time. Definitely 5 stars
