Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Experience

10 October @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm

£26 – £30

Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboard (SUP) Experience

Now open to non members.

Venue: Union Canal

We’ve got a great deal with Driftwood Adventures for introductory lessons for Kayak and Stand Up Paddleboarding. It’s a two hour lesson to learn the basics of cruising safely. The cost (£26/30pp) includes the provision of Wetsuits, Buoyancy Aids, Kayak/SUP, helmets and paddles and 2 hour group tuition.

The location of the SUP and Kayak had been confirmed as Union Canal, Edinburgh. Meeting point will be forwarded by email. Some additional SUP spaces have been made available to book, and further SUP may be available on the day. So book now before booking closes tomorrow at Noon.

The forecast for the weekend looks OK for sunshine, however the tide + offshore winds means that plans to start in Portobello may have ended with recovery in Fife! The canal offers a calmer, more accessible space to get your balance, learn how to paddle efficiently and potentially jump off for a coffee at Fountainbridge midway! I did the SUP on the canal two weeks ago and can confirm it was great fun.

Further information and forms will be sent to all attendees on Friday, so please check your emails Friday evening.

There are 14 kayak spaces and 10 SUP spaces available so book early. Driftwood (and the club) have a Covid Officer in place and all current guidance regarding Covid and general HSE will be followed.

A booking checklist will be issued in advance once your booking is confirmed and payment is received which will ask for your details, any existing medical conditions for Covid track and trace, health and safety and general awareness etc. Please fill this out in advance and please let us know your preferred wetsuit size (Male/Female Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large). This is sure to sell out and is a great deal, so get booked up quickly. 

Emails about specific details will be send by social@edinburghskiclub.org.uk. If you didn’t receive one by Friday evening prior to the event please check your junk mail.

This event is subject to cancellation based on official guidance on pandemic restrictions as well as adverse weather.

Tickets are available until 9am on 9/10/20 unless they sell out prior.
