On the Day
What to wear
All paddlers will need to wear comfortable clothing* taking into consideration the weather that day. Sunglasses are advisable (remember to have them attached or they will be lost in the lake) and on hot days it’s worth having some sunscreen on, as you always burn faster on the water.
Your feet are the only part of your body that will come into contact with the water, but boards have good grip so bare feet or some water shoes will be fine.
*Synthetic clothing dries quickly and is the best choice for outdoor pursuits. Please do not wear cotton clothing. When wet, cotton rapidly robs the heat from your body and takes a long time to dry. We also recommend you dress in multiple layers, allowing you more flexibility to comfortably respond to the weather conditions and your level of exertion.
What to bring
Paddleboarding is not a falling in sport, however, We will be practicing a safety drill of falling off and getting back onto your paddleboard. It is advised that you bring a change of clothing with you. We are not currently permitted to have changing facilities, so we suggest a large towel to change under.
Please also bring bottled water and maybe a snack for after your lesson. Other than that, just bring yourself and your enthusiasm. You’re going to have fun out there!
