What to bring for your Paddleboarding?
-Clothing really depends on the weather- avoid cotton clothes as get soggy, swim wear underneath as quick dry, sports clothes, windbreakers if cool. You don’t need wetsuits in the summer but if you have anything neoprene it helps or shortie wetsuits but if it is hot, anything will do. Kids get cool quicker – so layers.
- All glasses need to be cheap or attached
- Something drink
- Footwear water shoes, flips or crocs; depends on water and air temp. Nothing is fine.
- Change of clothes in the car
- Insect repellant for evenings
Most lessons and hiring will be organised closed to Maidenhead. I like to vary your experiences and show you as many great river trips as possible. So we will try to offer you different locations.
Bray- Maidenhead- Boulters Lock- Cookham- Jubliee- Maidenhead Lake . Wargrave is also a great place to paddle around but requires at least 3 hours.
Boards can be dropped off to either Cookham or Maidenhead.

Want to buy a board?
It is a really good idea before you buy a board to try them out. They vary in length, weight, durability, strength and loads to choose from. Most people choose one too short and a paddle that is too heavy and cheap. Have a lesson or two and become more SUP wise and skilled. You need a river licence and insurance to use the waterways and it is wise to know how to rescue yourself and others. You can paddle all year round if you know the rules and riverways. Keep safe, paddle in pairs and know your board.
DPB Club I thoroughly recommend that if you buy a board that you join DPB for £20 a year, so you join more experienced paddlers on local river adventures and explore more riverways this country has to offer. https://dpbclub.co/
Maidenhead Sailing Club has now opened its lake to Paddlesports. Once we are allowed to teach in groups, I will be a volunteer coach and will lead Saturday morning paddles – kayaks & SUP’s and Sunday SUP Skills at Sunset.
