Mixed ability Stand Up Paddleboard fun on the river
About this Event
Stand Up Paddleboarding takes place on the wide stretch of the Thames between The Swan and Cleeve Lock.
Led by a qualified BSUPA resident paddleboard Instructor, Andy Irving of The SUP Life, you will have the opportunity to work on your technique with tips and hints on how to get the most from your paddleboard. This is a social, mixed ability session.
About The SUP Life
After a corporate career spanning 15 years, including marketing roles at Xbox and GoPro, Andy wanted to convert his lifetime love of the outdoors into something more meaningful – which became The SUP Life.
Andy has a wide ranging sporting history, from being a member of the fledgling Junior Team GB Snowboard squad 25 years ago to more recently competing in international Ironman events.
As a very keen open water swimmer and surfer, Andy loves being in and on the water as much as possible. Learning to Paddleboard was a natural progression for him and he’s been paddling on the Thames for a number of years.
Andy’s relaxed and friendly style of teaching will ensure you have fun no matter what!
RED paddleboards and paddles will be set up for you and ready to go from the riverside, so all you need to do is show up in your gym kit or similar with perhaps an extra layer as it can be chillier on the water. Full instruction will be given before you even get on the water, so if you’re new to the sport, don’t worry – you’re in safe hands.
Why not make an evening of it and book supper at Coppa Club or enjoy a drink at the bar. Or push the boat out & treat yourself to a night away in one of The Swan’s recently refurbished rooms, call 01491 878800 for availability.
