      Paddleboarding River Trip For Beginners on The River Avon

      This is absolutely one of our favourite spots for a paddle along the River Avon. The stretch from the beautiful Eckington Bridge Picnic Site to Nafford Lock is the perfect way to experience stand up paddleboarding.  Perfect for beginners as full instruction is given and all gear is provided including boards, paddles and buoyancy aids, just bring yourself (and some family or friends!). After an introduction to SUP, a safety briefing and your land-based instruction, we'll head out onto the water for a gentle paddle down the river to enjoy the tranquillity, meet some local wildlife (buzzards, kingfishers, herons, otters and even swimming dear are all about if we're lucky!) and have lots of fun as you learn a new skill and find out for yourself why SUP is the fastest growing watersport in the world! Who is this activity perfect for?Families or friend groups from age 10 to, well, pretty much any age so long as you can stand up and swim at least 50m! This a very accessible water sport and you don't need any experience whatsoever to enjoy our Learn to Paddle sessions. Each session is limited to 8 spaces so that we can give everyone maximum attention and fun times!What is included?Our two-hour sessions include all the gear you need to get on the water (board, paddle, leash and buoyancy aid). We just ask that you dress for the weather; board shorts and tee shirts are a favourite, or perhaps your yoga outfit. Quick drying and sun safe are a good choice (don't forget your suncream) - There is plenty of free parking at the picnic site but bring along plenty of water and maybe even a picnic to enjoy after your adventure! PricesOur Learn to Paddle sessions are £40 per person Refund PolicyWe have to plan ahead and session spaces are limited so we offer a full refund if you notify us of your cancellation 2 weeks before your session or a 50% refund a week before your booked session. If you have any other questions then please get in touch, we'd love to hear from you: Wittering SUP is an ASI (Academy of Surf Instructors) Certified SUP School run by ASI instructor, James Wittering.
