About the event
Come and learn the amazing art of stand up paddleboarding! A session where fun, team work, exercise and education are all part of the experience! We are so lucky to have partnered with Liverpool SUP Company to provide this experience and are so grateful to Liverpool City Council in collaboration with Alder Hey for the funding to be able to provide these opportunities for children and young people across our city!
You'll learn the paddleboarding basics right in the heart of the Albert Dock, on a large paddleboard designed to take 8 people plus Jayne Rigby, your fully qualified SUP instructor.
Where to Meet
Meet at the Salthouse Quay - Royal Albert Dock
We'll be launching from The Canal and River Trust Pontoon right in the heart of the Albert Dock
There's plenty of pay and display parking round the docks - or public transport links are great!
The nearest toilets are situated in The Albert Dock
You'll have a bouyancy aid on, so you'll float even if you do wobble into the water and no specialist equipment or clothing is needed for the session at all!
Wear gym clothes for warmer sessions, thermals under if it's cooler. For your feet, old trainers, pumps, water shoes/booties that you don't mind getting wet! If you have your own wetsuit, you can wear that but its not essential!
Bring clothing to change into post session and a towel
Bring water and snacks! These sessions are physically hard work!
There is a pop up changing station for you to change in
The waiver you'll sign says you must be able to swim 50m... ALL children and young people in the session will have a buoyancy aid on regardless of swimming ability so this requirement is not necessary.
