Kayaking, SUP and Canoeing
All of our Kayaking/Canoeing and SUP takes place at Wimbleball Lake on Exmoor, the same place we also do Raft Building. Apart from anything else, the scenery is breathtaking and is worth a visit for just that alone! It is set in such a beautiful environment to escape for the day and refresh in the countryside.
You will learn how to Kayak and/or Canoe, gaining all the basic skills and knowledge as well as trying out a reliavely new experience of Stand Up Paddleboarding. If you have never heard of SUP-ing, then it has evolved from surfing, and uses a similar style board combined with a paddle to move through the water. This means no more lying down on the board and using your arms. You guessed it – you stand up! A lot of the challenges people will face are balance, co-ordinaiton more than likely patience! But once you have got the hang of it, you can glide across Wimbleball Lake taking in the new experience and the views!
All sessions are designed to be fun and maximise the enjoyment on the water, with safety always being paramount, we can assure there will plenty of laughter! There will be many games and challenges and it can get quite compeititve!
For a unique, extremely fun and exhilarating experience, why not try our Mega SUP? It literally it as it says in the name - a massive stand up paddle board!
This is our latest activity and one we only just introduced for 2015, we also are the ONLY company in North Devon to have one!
It can take a maximum of 12 people and the aim is to get everyone stood up paddling at the same time! (much harder than it sounds!)
This can be either done at the Lake where it is flat, or at the beach - we much prefer the beach and trying to catch the waves with 12 people all standing and paddling at the same time!
Watch the video below to see what happened when the Rock and Rapid staff took it out to test drive it!
