What can I expect on the day

Three hours to crack paddle boarding in Scotland! These half day sessions aimed at beginners will take you from a wobbly land lubber to a smooth-paddling SUPer in a matter of hours. And all this takes place in the stunning Scottish setting of the River Tay near Aberfeldy. Get set for great scenery and the chance to learn a new sport.

Stand up paddleboarding is the perfect sport for Scotland, as it can be done on oceans, lochs and rivers. It’s a sort of combination of canoeing and surfing. Standing on a long, flat board is just like surfing, but then you propel yourself by paddling, which is clearly more like canoeing. Despite this slight identity crisis, SUP is getting really popular - so much so that it’s being considered for inclusion in the Olympics.

For first-time SUPers in Scotland, the River Tay is nice and gentle. Calmer waters, combined with a large, floaty board makes for a more stable start to your Scottish SUPing adventures. Indeed, the right equipment is key to getting the hang of paddle boarding. The team at this adventure centre in Scotland will pick a board to suit your size (too small and it’ll be unstable) and a paddle too.

You might think that you need to be strong to SUP. It’s actually more about technique. Having said that, the instructors in Scotland will tell you paddle boarding is an all over body workout, especially core strength. As you take to the Tay for the first time on your board with paddle in hand, the trickiest part is getting up. You’ll start by kneeling and then progress to standing.

As we said, SUP is all about technique, so think slightly bent legs and gazing out to the horizon. The number one rule is to not look down at your feet - it’s sure to unsteady you! These and other golden nuggets of information will be shared with you by the coaches. Before you know it, you’ll be up on your feet on the board, looking around at the beautiful Scottish scenery as your paddle smoothly around.

Of course, learning to paddle board in Scotland you might take a couple of early falls, but keep the faith, get yourself back up on the board and dip that paddle back in that River Tay water. Good tuition, good quality equipment in a very lovely setting - what more could you, as a newbie SUPer ask for?
