This Sunday you get a chance to experience Stand UP ( or sit down) paddleboarding on the Thames near the Sounding Arch.
You may have some experience already or none at all but I can set you up on my boards and we will go round the island near Guards Club Park and between the Sounding Arch and Maidenhead Bridge together and then finish with some yoga if you want, or you can paddle and practice your balancing skills. Great to share the hour with a friend or family. Children from 8 years are welcome too and if they are younger they must be able to swim but can share a board. £25 , 3 places every hour available, 45 minutes of paddling,
£25 a person includes board and paddle
Please don't wear any cotton , just sport clothes will do, layers are good and you will heat up with the effort. No shoes necessary as weather is expected to be warm but water shoes are fine. Bare feet is best if warm. No wetsuits as they will be too warm. Bring a drink too and leave phones unless waterproof behind or place in waterproof casing.
Horse Club Park , off Oldacres, SL6 1XL Maidenhead
This hidden gem of a park, makes for the perfect launch site for beginners. There is parking and nearer the river, a safe area to attach bikes. These quiet back waters between the footbridge and the Sounding Arch are perfect for SUP yoga and learning to paddle.
