About The Adventure

Always wanted to give Stand Up Paddle Boarding a go or want to expand on the skills you already have?  Then this four week learn to Stand Up Paddle Board Adventure is for you! 

Learn the process of standing up on the paddleboarding, correct stroke technique, basic turns and then progressing onto more advanced skills, increasing your speed and stamina in the process. You'll be able to trial different type boards and become a very confident SUP'er by the end of four Sunday mornings on the water together. 

Our ASI qualified instructor will start by outlining all safety advice, paddle technique, and provide a brief warm-up with the group before heading out on the water where more personalised instruction will be provided. We'll spend an hour and a half paddling around the lake, with the location likely to change weekly depending on the wind direction (just to keep things even more interesting!) followed by a lite morning including delicious homemade baked goodies! 

Come and join us, we guarantee you'll learn lots and have lots of laughs too!

​I haven’t done this before, will I be fit enough?  This Adventure is for all levels of fitness and ability levels. Your instructor will help you no matter what level you are at. The only thing we ask is that you are confident in the water and would be able to swim 50 meters unaided if needed.

What if I don't have anyone to go with? No problem! At least half of the ladies come by themselves and find the hosts Sharon and Katrina provide a welcoming, encouraging environment. We'll introduce everyone and by the end of week one, we wouldn't be surprised if you've found some new adventure friends!

What if it is raining, will the adventure still go ahead? Probably, we'll still paddle if it is raining, it will just add to the adventure.  If there are high weather warnings or wind we may have to reassess as your safety is our number one priority. If Women Embrace Adventure cancels the event you will be given a full refund.
