Good news for paddleboarders – and those who wish to learn the fast-growing sport.

You’re allowed to get back on the water and be taught one-to-one by qualified instructors like Surbiton’s Leah Fraser.

The rules around watersports have recently changed, which means Leah, who runs The Good Life Paddle Company, is not only allowed to go out on her board, she is also allowed to teach again.

“I can now offer one-to-one paddleboard sessions on the water following social distancing guidelines!” said Leah who will tailor the lesson to suit the abilities and experience of her clients – and also what they want to do – whether it be a gentle paddle, stretching exercises on the board, a speed or fitness session, or foraging for fruit next to the river.

Beginners get tuition on land in Learn To SUP (Stand-up Paddleboarding), including aspects of health and safety and what to look out for before going out on to the water, while Paddle Pro classes help improvers work on technique and speed to gain that next level of confidence on the board.

Leah has boards for people to use, with “super stable ones for beginners” too. She is also an ambassador for Sandbanks Sup Style paddleboards, like this cool Sandbanks Ultimate in Amazon print she is holding (free Zoom lesson on how to use it thrown in too), and also teaches on them.

Lessons (£40 for an hour or £50 for 90 mins) are predominantly during the day on Friday to Sunday and take place mainly on the Surbiton to Teddington stretch of the Thames, but Leah will also run some evening classes too. Lessons available today (Friday), tomorrow and Bank Holiday Monday.
