Paddleboarding is brilliant fun and at Graythwaite Adventure we offer instructed lessons and board hire, to help you hone your skills or experience SUP for the first time. Ours is a fleet of RED boards, arguably the best boards available.

The benefits of an instructed session are that you will master the basic strokes quickly and journey with ease to make the most of your session … spend more time paddling, less time swimming! We may even progress to headstands! We’ll also be there for safety support for added confidence. We require at least one adult in your party, but not necessarily taking part. The lessons are 1.5 hours long.

Or you may opt for board hire if you’ve SUP’d before. We’re happy to hire to water confident first timers too. We require at least one adult in your party to be on the water. You can opt for one hour, two hours of you may prefer a half day adventure.

What better place to paddleboard than England’s largest lake, in the heart of the Lake District National Park; Lake Windermere? As with all our experiences, this will be a private booking for your party if you book a lesson. Happy SUP’ing!

Our watersports centre is a ‘pop-up’, from April to October and at the end of the season we pack up, leave no trace and allow Grubbins Point peace and quiet over the winter months before all the fun starts again next year.
