Our ‘Intro to Stand Up Paddleboarding’ session is a practical 75-minute course where you’ll learn the essentials of Stand Up Paddleboarding. Throughout the session, you’ll navigate the calm inner basins of Salford Quays, picking up key paddling techniques.

Aimed at beginners, this session will arm you with the key skills needed for paddling with confidence. We’ll kit you out with a buoyancy aid, get you settled on your board with a brief demo, and then it’s into the water for some real practice.

It’s an ideal fit whether you’re flying solo, coming with mates, or teaming up with work colleagues for a bit of out-of-office bonding.
