LASTLY... A WORD ON FALLING IN.
In our experience around 20% of beginners fall in, which is not that many.
Whether you fall in or not depends on a variety of factors but rest assured if you do
end up going for dip, all that happens is you get wet, have a laugh and then dry off.
Falling in is not failing. Falling in (or off) is an important part of learning and can apply
to any new sport. This is the moment where we really begin to learn and therefore improve.
We need to fall in once in a while - it shows we're trying and pushing our boundaries!
Nothing wrong with falling in - happens to us all!
(...just try to hang on to the paddle!)
To make falling in more 'comfortable', especially for those booking early or late season
lessons (when the water is less warm), we have Men's and Women's wetsuits available to
hire as an optional extra.
The wetsuits are £7 each per person and are available on a first come first served basis.
Let us know via the Contact Us page if you need one or click the 'add wetsuit' button
when booking. You are of course welcome to bring your own if you have one!
