The perfect introductions to Paddlesport…

The Paddle Start is suitable for complete beginners, whilst the Paddle Discover and Paddle Explore are ideal for those who’ve enjoyed a few paddles and now want to learn more.

– The course will include coaching sessions and a journey in kayaks and/or stand up paddleboards at a flat water venue in the Brecon Beacons National Park.
– L2F can supply all the equipment you’ll need and advise you what to wear so that you are comfortable on the water.
– There are a maximum of 4 places available, with a minimum of 2 required for a course to run.  An individual coaching day can be provided but this would be considered a Bespoke Coaching day as described here.
– Cost is £80pp for a full day of coaching and equipment use.

L2F can also conduct these courses in association with a club, centre or small groups on request for a negotiated group deal.
