Skills-based paddleboarding workshop on Derwentwater
Join us at Alpkit Keswick on August 21st for a paddleboarding skills session led by Mountain Memories as part of our Keswick School of Adventure weekend.
As part of the Alpkit Keswick SofA weekend we are working with Mountain Memories to bring you a Paddleboard skills session on Derwentwater. You’ll meet at the Alpkit Keswick shop and make your way to Derwentwater (10 mins walk) before getting on the lake.
This session is for people that have already tried paddleboarding before but want to improve their skills and techniques. You will not require your own paddleboard for this session. This session is family friendly, please make sure that all under 18’s are accompanied by an adult and can swim competently.
Your session will include:
Efficient forward paddling for touring and speed
Turning on the spot
Turning on the move
Using paddle as a rudder
Body position on board
Rescues (getting wet!)
What to bring:
Trainers you can get wet
Warm layers for afterwards. Even on a hot day
Plenty of food and snacks
Sun cream, a hat and plenty of water
These are skills courses so there will be some degree of pausing to learn. There will be some snacks and drinks at Alpkit Keswick for when you’re finished.
This session will hopefully inspire you to plan your own Paddleboard adventure!
The session will start at 9:00am and last approx. 3 hours
Tickets cost £15 with 10 spaces available
