I just had my first ever experience of SUP boarding with Dittons, I booked their taster session. I was very apprehensive about even being able to stand, but I did! Thanks to the top tips and expert advice from Di, aka the.sup.adventure.girl, not only was I standing, I was having a great time. Their perfect little set up next to The Albany pub meant I could get a well deserved drink after and watch the water world pass me by. I now need to source myself some equipment so that I can go again, soon! I hear their social evening paddles are great (friend recommended).

I booked a beginner lesson for my birthday, I have always wanted to try paddle boarding. The lesson was very well organised, life jackets were given out. There were two instructors, our group had 5 people. We learned the basics, how to paddle and turn, get back on the board if you fall off and how to manage the wind. In our group we were all able to get the hang of standing up, and we’re able to get a good way down the river. A really enjoyable experience. We will definitely be back.

Lovely day out and taster session with Dittons Paddle Boarding. During the 1.5 hour intro we learned basic board control, safety, how to stand up and the rules of the river. Would highly recommend if you are new to SUP or looking to brush up your skills. The instructor Claire (sorry if I got the name wrong!) was very approachable, knowledgable and friendly. The club also offers social paddle sessions :))

We had a wonderful relaxed time on the water exploring areas of the river we'd never visited before. Paddling as the sun set and in the dusk was magical.
