Who is this for?

These sessions are suitable for beginners and novices. Do any of the following sound like you?

  • “I’ve never been on a paddle board, I’m not used to this kind of thing but I’m keen to give it a go!”
  • “I’ve tried paddle boarding before but I didn’t quite get the hang of it”
  • “I’m looking to pick up a few tips before buying my own board”

What to expect

Our instructor is a British Canoeing Level 3 Stand-Up Paddleboarding Coach and will tailor the session to suit your expectations and needs. For most people, this will be their first time on a paddle board but if you have been before and want to focus on something in particular, just let him know!

Sessions start on the bank and quickly move into the water.

Expect to get wet… it’s all part of the experience!

Excellent

My partner and I had a paddle board lesson with Ben, the new instructor. He was superb, with a great balance of technical knowledge and light hearted fun. We both stood up very quickly under his guidance, and continued to have a wonderful experience paddling up and down the river Severn.
I'd highly recommend him and the company to anyone interested in learning to paddle board

We had an absolute blast. Ben was a fantastic instructor who made it great fun for us. We had a mix of complete beginners and those who had done a bit before. It was great to see a new bit of Shrewsbury. We finished up playing games and trying our hardest to get our last woman standing, in the river. Highly recommended. Will definitely be back! Huge thanks to Ben for making it so much fun!

recommends Hire a Canoe

The most fun on a river with instructors who are experts and teach you the skills needed. From Sup board complete beginner to competent and balanced in 2 hours with lots of laughs and beautiful scenery to boot. You will not regret this activity.

Pensioner on a paddle board

Decided to book a paddle board guided two hour session and so glad I did. We were met by the friendly and welcoming Ben who took us through all the safety and practical aspects of paddle boarding. Then it was onto the River Severn at Frankwell and off we all went. What a fantastic experience. The river was gently flowing and we were surrounded by nature as we glided through the water. Ben continued to give up tips on how best to paddle, and encouraged us when we fell in. Which we did! I am a convert and will definitely book more sessions with this well organized and friendly company. Just goes to show you're never too old for a new experience.

Had a great paddle board lesson [the instructor] developed our confidence over the 2 hrs and we had a great rescue session and learnt how to get back on the board which was a concern of mine, enjoyed very much
