Paddleboarding is an increasingly popular watersport and is accessible for most people wanting to learn a new and exciting sport with plenty of possibilities. The school teaches the basics of paddling, water safety and getting up on your feet comfortably. For those with some previous paddleboarding experience, this session can be used as a step up lesson to improve paddle technique and potentially head out on a tour. The majority of lessons are set on the beautiful Camel estuary in Padstow which provides the perfect flat water conditions. All the necessary equipment is provided including a wetsuit, board and paddle.


Seven days a week between May and October. Please be aware that for group bookings of four or more, extra dates may be available so do check.
