Improvers Paddleboarding Course

The Improvers Paddle Boarding course is a really comprehensive and wonderful introduction into the world of Paddleboarding. This course consists of four sessions here at the Leam (usually an evening), and a fantastic day trip to the river Wye.


This course is designed for novice paddlers; maybe you have done a taster or hire session and loved it, or maybe you’ve never paddled but want to have a go. You will develop the basic paddleboard skills and knowledge of river safety issues, so that you can be confident out on the water. You will also have the opportunity to spend some time on different types of boards and use different paddles, to give you a feel for what’s out there! Your course should be seen as a sound basis for building the experience and knowledge associated with Paddleboarding.


Those that are interested can be assessed for their BC Discover Award, and you will hopefully have ventured beyond this level by the end of the course.


This course is for you if: You are a novice paddler who has had little to no coaching before, are looking to try a new sport or have your own board and wish to become confident on it.
