How fit do I need to be?
Stand up paddle boarding requires balance and core strength but can be done by almost anyone. If you are fit enough to walk around the shops….you can Stand Up Paddleboard. You do need to be confident in the water and be able to swim (50 metres with a life jacket on).
Do I need experience?
Definitely not! We'll provide a comprehensive briefing on equipment use, safety and what to expect before we get on the water. We also offer tips to improve your technique to make things easier and more enjoyable while paddling.
How many women will be on this adventure?
We like to keep things relatively small and intimate at Women Embrace Adventure to offer you a supportive and friendly environment. Generally, there are around 10 - 14 people on an adventure, plus your guide and hosts.
Am I going to get wet?
Yes - almost everyone falls off the paddle board at some stage, so come prepared to get wet!
I'll be coming on my own, is that ok?
Not a problem at all! Lots of women come on their own to our adventures. Your Women Embrace Adventure host will make sure everyone meets at the start of our adventure. We always have lots of fun; there's no pressure, no judgment, and lots of encouragement from everyone. By the end of the adventure, you may have just found some new adventure friends!
Will bad weather conditions affect my adventure?
Wet weather will generally not cause the cancellation of a SUP adventure; in fact, some of the best paddling conditions are in the rain. Wind, on the other hand, can cause cancellations. If the wind is strong enough to be a potential safety risk, we will contact you in the days before to discuss your options. We may also change locations as we have some excellent alternative sites that aren't affected by the wind. If cancelled outright by Women Embrace Adventure due to weather, you will receive a credit or full refund.
