A fantastic special offer that lets you try the UK's coolest new sports - Segway and paddleboarding!
Learn to drive an advanced vertical scooter and try out the UK’s fastest growing watersport with this Segway and Stand Up Paddleboarding experience. You’ll start with a full training session and a group excursion to teach you how to handle the Segway at a relaxed pace, before taking on the Segway rally circuit, where you can test yourselves and find out just how good you really are! You’ll then hit the water and try your hand at Stand Up Paddle boarding - a fun and exciting take on the traditional surfing experience. You’ll have loads of fun with this easy to learn sport as you enjoy a 2 hour session which will give you the skills to get out there on your own.
You'll begin with a registration, where you'll each receive the kit you'll need to command your Segway, before having a briefing and training session. Once you've got to grips with the basic principles, you'll be taken for a group familiarity excursion, where you'll see the local area and gain confidence piloting your Segway. Finally, it's time for the main event, as you take to the rally circuit in turn and find out how good you really are.
You then switch over to Paddleboarding - a modern, fun and easy to learn alternative to the traditional surfing experience! You will be issued with a board, paddle, wetsuit and buoyancy aid, and following a short safety briefing on shore it will be straight out onto the water. You will be taught how to launch and land your board and stay safe and how to paddle the board in a straight line. As your balance improves you will start working on increasing you speed as well as basic and more advanced manoeuvres getting you ready for the surf.
