Looking for a fun (not too difficult) outdoor activity this summer?
Fancy trying the fastest growing watersport in the world in spectacular surroundings?
Don’t miss today’s Big Deal for a paddleboard session with Loch Lomond Leisure.
Paddleboarding is currently the fastest growing watersport in the world.
A variation on the traditional Pacific sport of surfing, paddle boarders remain upright on their boards and use a paddle to propel themselves through the water.
Not as difficult as surfing, it doesn’t take long to learn how to paddleboard – once you’ve mastered the basics (standing up and steering your board) the only limits are your imagination.
It’s a surprisingly serene water sport; gliding across the water is enormously relaxing (so much so that paddle board yoga has become a thing).
The sport 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.
Explore Loch Lomond
Paddleboarding is most enjoyable when it you’re gliding through the water in spectacular surroundings.
Surroundings don’t get much more spectacular than the glimmering water, snow capped peaks and jewelled islands of Loch Lomond.
Today’s Big Deal takes off from Rowardennan and allows you to see a perspective of the loch you’ve never seen before.
Loch Lomond Leisure
There are two options to today’s Big Deal. Option one is for two hours paddleboarding on Loch Lomond. Option two is for four hours.
The deal includes hire of a paddleboard, paddle and buoyancy aid provided by Loch Lomond Leisure who have a wealth of experience in overseeing watersports at the loch.
All paddleboarders will receive a safety induction and some basic training from Loch Lomond Leisure but once they set from Rowerdennan they will be completely independent and free to explore Loch Lomond at their own pace.
Loch Lomond Leisure have a number of rave reviews on TripAdvisor from those who loved their paddleboard experience.
Reviews (edited for length) include:
“Never been paddle boarding before and booked for the 2 hours session…. The scenery was amazing, the people were friendly and the paddle boarding experience was just fabulous. I will definitely be going back to do this again.”
“My pal and I had a wonderful four hours paddle boarding on the loch. Beautiful scenery. Sunny then rain but doesn’t matter for water sports. Explored four islands and had a great time… Try it. You will love it.”
Great group activity
This Big Deal for a paddleboard session would make a great group activity with friends.
Available until the end of September, it is a fantastic summer outdoor sport.
