Paddleboard lessons in Scarborough are suitable for beginners to intermediate. Paddleboarding is a relatively new surfing phenomenon that adds a whole new dimension to riding waves and exploring the stunning Yorkshire coastline. It’s a fun, low impact, ‘all-body’ workout, making it a great activity for fitness as well as fun!
There are changing facilities and you will receive assistance with kit sizing and safety advice that is required for the weather and sea conditions on the day.
This hugely popular activity is the fastest growing water sport in the world, and also a lot easier than you might think! After a couple of tries, most people can stand up and balance just fine – but if you’re a little unsteady on your feet, you can have just as much fun doing it on your knees!
Lessons are available for individuals or groups. If you bring a few friends with you and have a minimum of 5 people, you can receive a private group lesson.
