This Gold DofE residential is designed for anyone who loves the water and wants to improve their paddleboarding skills and explore some amazing inland and coastal waters at the same time. Whether you’re already enjoying time on the water, or if paddling is fairly new to you, come and join us for a week of learning and fun!
This special residential week will consist of 5 activity days, with all food, accommodation and transport during the week included. With a maximum of 6 participants in each group, you’ll receive a wealth of experience to help you on your way to becoming a more accomplished paddler.
You can either bring your own board and kit, or use one of ours. As clothing is so individual we expect that you’ll already have your own wetsuit (or drysuit/cag/etc!).
Over the course of this week you’ll learn a vast array of new skills. As well as understanding more about the kit we need, and how best to use it. We’ll also discuss the weather and tidal considerations, navigation on the water, safety and rescue skills. Of course, we’ll do all of this in some amazing places – that may be on the lakes and rivers of Snowdonia, or perhaps the sea of Anglesey – that’s partly weather dependent, and partly up to you!
31st July – 4th Aug
