Information & Support

Experience required: Stand up Paddleboarding Beginners Session

This course is suitable for those aged 8-15. 

The Centre has a team of experienced staff, who will guide your child through these early stages of their paddleboarding experience. The shallow waters of Christchurch Harbour make it an ideal place to learn.

Your child will need to bring shoes for the water eg beach shoes or wetsuit boots (not crocs or flip flops as these come off too easily) and swimwear to wear under a wetsuit. If staying for the day, they will also need to bring snacks, lunch and plenty to drink. Suncream and hats are advisable too.  All other equipment is supplied, eg wetsuits, bouyancy aids and helmets.

Course Cost

There is a cost of £35 per 3 hour session.
