What to wear

Wetsuits are optional and most people find they are not necessary once the water is warm from mid to late summer. If you want to wear one, we recommend bringing your own wetsuit if you have one or you can use one of ours, we have a selection of sizes available and, yes, they are cleaned between uses! Please wear swimwear or underwear under our wetsuits.

We have wetsuits from kids’ sizes up to size XXL, suitable for chest sizes up to 115 cm. Please note that these wetsuits are unisex and as such the chest, waist and hip ratio leans towards an inverted triangle body shape.

Alternatively, you can simply wear something you are comfortable in like leggings/shorts and a T-shirt. You will be issued a buoyancy aid to wear on top. In this case, don’t forget to bring a towel, a bag to put any wet gear in and a full change of clothes!

"What a fantastic experience. The river was gently flowing and we were surrounded by nature as we glided through the water."

recommends Hire a Canoe

Hired paddle boards on Wednesday eve and had a great time... I’d definitely recommend hiring from these guys, the boards and wetsuits are of great quality. Looking forward to hiring off them again soon.

Perfect trip!

What a perfect way to spend an afternoon! Could not recommend this place more, nothing was too much trouble and everything was well organised and prepared. There’s no feeling quite like paddle boarding and would really recommend Hire A Canoe to anyone looking for some great fun!

Amazing afternoon paddleboarding

Absolutely loved our trip with the paddleboards - it was torrential rain but didn’t stop us having fun! The wetsuits kept us warm - very friendly people - can’t wait to go again - thanks for an amazing experience
