Ever wondered what all the hype is about but lacked the confidence to try it for yourself? This is your chance to experience one of the UK’s fastest growing sports in one of the most scenic paddling venues in the country.

This short introductory session takes place on picturesque Loch an Eilein, a lovely little loch in the Cairngorm National Park, and is all about the smiles rather than the miles! During the session our friendly, experienced instructors will teach you how to set up your equipment, launch, and land safely.  Once on the water you’ll learn the basic paddling skills, how to stand up on the board and how to self-rescue, all whilst enjoying some fun games and challenges along the way.

For individuals and small groups, scheduled sessions are available to book here online during the season.  Private group bookings are also available and can be quoted on request at other times (subject to a minimum booking fee of £300).  Call 0333 6006008 or get in touch for more information or to book – group bookings cannot be booked online.
