Adults Skills Developer

This is our skills development session, where you will learn to become a more proficient and capable paddler.


Let us know if you want to hire a wetsuit as we have some available for hire.

If you’re not familiar with the site, we ask that you arrive 20mins before your session so that we can get you booked in and for you to get changed and down to the lake.

What to bring

If you’ve already done a taster session with us you’ll know that we have shower facilities on site and provide all your equipment and SUPs.

You will need to bring:

  1. towel
  2. water bottle
  3. water shoes
  4. sunscreen (rec w/p F50)
  5. shorts / tee-shirt (Summer months)
  6. wet suit in colder months (if you have one)
  7. snacks / food

We also recommend bringing a notebook and pen to assist with building your development plan and helping understand areas that you want to focus on as you progress towards your DISCOVER award.


On arrival you’ll be met and checked in by one of the team who’ll explain everything that’s going to happen.

You’ll be shown where to change and when ready you’ll have an introduction to the kit and a safety brief, then we’ll head down to the lake, warm up and get on the water.

As trained Coaches and Instructors we focus on your learning needs, so will tailor the session to ensure you make the best possible progress in the 3 basic areas:

  1. Moving forwards
  2. Turning and
  3. Climbing back on…

At the end of the session we will review progress and any areas requiring additional attention in your development plan and discuss how and when to take things forward

Due to the current drought conditions placing unprecedented pressure on our lake at Pinewood we have taken the hard decision to suspend activities on the lake until we get some rain. Find out more
