From: £45

Stand up paddle boarding is very a popular outdoor activity among first-time participants. Everyone can enjoy this fun activity on the River Spey

Description

River Paddle Boarding adventure on the River Spey is super fun and easy to learn for everyone. Try River Stand Up Paddle Boarding and you’ll understand the buzz is about this fast growing new sport.

You might think SUP “stand up paddle boarding” is a gentle paddle around a lake. Doesn’t sound too exciting eh? Well think again! Come try River  Stand Up Paddle Boarding with Full On Adventure.

If you enjoyed White Water River Tubing or Rafting with us, imagine learning this new river sport. You can safely enjoy white water or river trips yourself. Paddle boards are great in the surf and for longer journeys too.

Being inflatable with a handy rucksack travel bag, they pack up and store easily. They’re much easier to store at home than a canoe or kayak. And they’re much easier when it comes to taking it on holiday with you.

We run, “come and try it” SUP sessions on the River Spey suitable for all abilities and easy to pick up.

We have sourced the best quality Stand Up Paddle boards from Red Paddle Co. They make very stable SUP boards that are perfect to learn on.

We teach you the skills you’ll need to paddle board on the river, or anywhere else Surf, Sea, wilderness Lochs, adventure journeys across Scotland or around the world SUP adventures.

Why learn on the river?

The river is much more sheltered from the wind than highland lochs, so makes a better learning environment. The river’s flow makes it extra fun. Learn how to ferry glide across the current, the first step to learning how to surf.

Here in the Cairngorms National Park our River Spey SUP location is only a 5-10 minute walk from our indoor changing rooms close to Aviemore and only minutes from the Old Bridge inn for great food and refreshments afterwards.

What is covered in the lesson?

  • Safe launch, landing and self rescue.
  • Efficient forward paddling
  • Spinning, Trim, Edging and all-round board control
  • How to ferry glide, the first steps to surfing.
  • Engaging your core for performance and getting in great shape, the fun way!

The great thing about Stand Up Paddle Boarding SUP is that you can pick it up and learn at your own pace. With our expert guides on hand you can be sure to get the right technique from the start, ensuring you progress quickly and get the most fun from this awesome water sport.

Think of it like Skiing or Snow Boarding, you can pick it up yourself, but with a few good quality pointers from an expert, you’ll get better quicker and have more fun on the water.

    Great activity to do whilst in Aviemore! My son and I loved the whole experience. Thank you Mike for being our enthusiastic river tubing guide. Wearing the wetsuits made us feel warm in the very refreshing water! The river was so fun to drift down and the rapids were great fun!

    We had a brilliant afternoon gorge walking. They added in an extra slot to accommodate us with just a couple of days notice. Our kids loved it and took part in all the jumps and challenges. I'm sure we will be back.

    River Tubing!! Mike took us out, nothing was rushed, it was all very safe and great fun. The wetsuits keep you nice and warm and the location is stunning. Just trust in your kit, the advice given and it is enjoyable for all abilities.

    Had a session with my 8 year old non swimming daughter this morning, with Mike, and had a blast. You can be as brave as you dare or have a more chill time if you want and we felt safe and assured at all times. Mike was great and very encouraging which helped the wee ones confidence and she left feeling very proud of herself. Would highly recommend and don't let not being able to swim put you off 🙂

    I loved it. We were lucky to go on a sunny warm day, the water was a good temperature. The scenery was beautiful. The instruction was good, it was a nice easy float down the river with a few rapid thrills and a couple of rock jumps too. Brilliant couple of hours.

    Not Full On. More like Foul Moneygrabbers. 5 friends and I booked with Full On for White Water Rafting today. We arrived 15 minutes late having told them we would be and they had left. It cost £330 and they didn't even call us to say "we're off". So we called them from their deserted office. They said they would only have been able to do single doughnut rides anyway. We are all 45-65 years old and would never have done doughnuts down the river anyway. We refused doughnut rides that afternoon. We asked for a partial refund. They refused any refund. John Mason the boss referred to his terms. Before you book with these people read the terms! No refunds. They can change what they like. Customer service does not exist at Full On.

    Excellent, friendly staff and brilliant activities. We went as a large family group of all ages and abilities (well, 14-65) and they organised an extra season for us. A brilliant afternoon!
