Paddle boarding is on the crest of a wave in the States, where this traditional Hawaiian activity has become an outdoor pursuit as popular with hipsters as it is with families.
Zip up your wet suit and hop on board with today’s Big Deal, offering an exhilarating introduction to this exciting watersport with outdoors specialists Action Adventure Activities.
Paddle boarding is a variation on the traditional Pacific sport of surfing. In this sport, stand up paddle boarders remain upright on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.
It’s a versatile sport that offers thrills and challenges and a chance to enjoy the great outdoors. Stand up paddlers wear a variety of wet suits and other clothing, depending on water and air temperature since most of their time is spent standing on the board.
The Big Deal option one offers one person an introduction to paddle boarding, lasting one to two hours.
Option two is for two people.
Option three is for a family of one or two adults and two to three children.
There is a minimum age of ten for participants, and a maximum weight of eighteen stone.
Based out of Easter Hill Farm, on the picturesque edge of the Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, Action Adventure Activities have plenty of experience running a wide range of outdoor activities.
The area’s spectacular landscape of mountains and lochs provides an atmospheric backdrop for this experience.
You will be shown the basics of the sport, with guidance from an expert instructor. Sessions last between one and two hours, depending on the size of your group.
Health and safety is always a priority at Action Adventure Activities. All the instructors are trained to relevant National Governing Body standards and all the necessary safety equipment, including wet suits (you can bring your own if preferred), helmets and buoyancy aids will be issued and demonstrated prior to starting your activity.
This Big Deal paddle boarding experience is ideal for anyone keen on watersports and looking for new challenges. It would make a great family day out, or an original gift idea for any surf enthusiast, kayaker or thrill-seeker.
