· How to get on and off the water safely
· How to paddle the board forwards and also how to turn and steer your board

Meeting times and logistics

Although your meeting point is onsite this activity involves a 30-40 minute transfer by minibus to the reservoir. Please meet at least 10 minutes before the course start time so your instructor can start to assign you equipment. Any delay in departure will shorten the groups experience and latecomers will be left behind. Due to the nature of the experience it is not possible to join the group at a later time.
