With water temperature ranging from 12 to 26 degrees, depending on time of year, the air can sometimes feel cooler than the water, but if you dress accordingly then you will be plenty warm enough, just bring a change of clothes in case you take an unexpected dip!

What to expect
We use 2021 Hatha Boards inflatable ‘Oxygen’ SUPs sized 10’6″ with leashes and paddles. We have 2 x SUP places available in a session, if you wish to bring your own board, the session price remains the same. When you arrive you will be briefed on safety tips, boards & equipment, how to paddle, and of course what to do if you fall in! You do not need to be a competent SUPper or experienced in either Yoga or SUP Yoga to participate, but a little confidence on and in the water and swimming ability will be sure to help and you can then relax.

What to wear and bring
Please arrive SUP ready! Choosing to wear yoga clothes, flexible wetsuits that aren’t too thick, lightweight quick dry layered sports clothing or swimwear. We would advise to stay away from cotton or denim! Be prepared to get wet, it could happen on it’s own or you may need a dip after the session. Bring a towel, spare set of clothes, water shoes to get in and out of the water (we are barefoot on the board deck) small bottle of water and a snack for after class. Please avoid eating 90 mins before you arrive. Please keep everything securely locked in your car or a good option is a small dry bag to store valuables and place this under the bungee cords on the board. We provide Buoyancy aids or you can bring your own.

The sun reflects off the water and sunscreen is important and recommended. You can choose to wear hats/caps/sunglasses to protect from glare & heat, ideally attached to you by a cord as they could fall off. And bless those nature companions in the summer evenings, insect repellent is handy.
