Take a look at the different levels of tuition and pick one that suits you – and don’t forget, we hire boards and all the kit you need to get you started. Just remember to bring towels, spare change of clothes and some sun cream

COVID-19 Update

Currently we are unable to offer paddle board sessions due to COVID-19 Government restrictions. However as soon as it is safe to do so, we will reopen for limited lessons and tours. Naturally, our primary concern is for the health and safety of both our customers and staff. So when we do get back on the water, things might be a bit different for a while. We are currently keeping our eye on governement advice and updating our processes – both on and off the water – to minimise any risk, including taking care to clean all equipment and safety gear. We’re also updating our website to make it easier for you to book and pay online for lessons and tours. Luckily all our intructors are fit and healthy and back on the water training hard. Please keep checking back here for the latest updates on when we will open. It won’t be long, we promise!

In the meantime, if you are thinking of heading out on the water, please take care and read our simple checklist of how to stay safe during COVID-19 restrictions.

The Waterborn Team



A wonderful experience, I have been paddle boarding a few times, but the friend who I took with me has never been before and is terrified of water. Finished with a big smile on her face. Thank you, Crispin, Be back soon!

Richard | London

Had an hour lesson with Crispin which was really good. He’s a really good teacher, very patient. He explained things really well and inspired confidence. Learned a lot from the lesson.

Ahalien | Bristol

Crispin taught us all the important basic manoeuvres as well as explaining about the tides and vital safety information. I would highly recommend this as a fun and different activity to do and can’t wait to try SUP again really soon to put my new found skills to the test.

Mrs Rubble | Leamington Spa

Our girls, 9 and 14, and I had a great time and Crispin was incredibly patient to get us all enjoying paddle boarding for the 1st time. Great fun and we recommend this to families as a fun activity.

Graham | London

What a great place to learn to paddleboard – sheltered, quiet and calm. After a couple of hours (and a few splashes) with our fab instructor Tom we had got the basics and are now the proud possessors of our Ready2Ride. Highly recommended!

Sally | London

We booked for our 8-year old daughter and her friend to have their first ever paddle board lesson with Crispin and they absolutely loved it! Crispin was an excellent instructor with lots of patience and communication with the girls.

Nicola | Lichfield

We had a great time learning how to paddle board and enjoyed doing a bit of Yoga too. Crispin was great and even fished our lost sunglasses out once the tide went out. Highly recommended!

HAL | London

Did the two hour Ready to Ride lesson with Crispin this morning – what fun! He was very welcoming, professional but laid back and helped me get over my bambi legs! I can’t wait to go back!
