Join us for our Standup Paddleboarding Session on the Grand Union Canal in London.

You’ll be joining our growing community of Gutsy Girl SUPers, we paddle several times a month at different locations in London. This is an excellent opportunity to meet likeminded women in the city.

What to Expect

We’ll start with a quick health and safety briefing, followed by a short ‘onland’ paddling lesson before we hit the water. Learning to stand up paddleboard is very quick and easy, you’ll be surprised at how natural it feels once you are standing.

Once you’re up on your feet we’ll start our tour of the Grand Union Canal, we'll pass London Landmarks including Little Venice, Saint Mary Magdalene Church and Trellick Tower.  

After our session we’ll head to a great local bar for drinks and fuel!

Introduction Session

If you’ve paddleboarded before but not with Gutsy Girls or Active360, you will need to complete our Introduction Session. This allows us to go through all the safety briefings for the canals and go some paddling technique.

Once you’ve completed our Introduction Session you can join as a Returning Paddler for £24-26 depending on the route.

We run sessions several sessions a month, so there's plenty of opportunities to get on the water with us. 

Returning Paddlers

If you’re joining us as a Returning Paddler, after the quick health and safety briefing you’ll be able to jump on the water with an instructor and warm up until the beginners will join us.

I’ve already SUPed before, can I skip the Intro Session? 

The land based lesson will be super short and most of the session will be on the water! Due to health and safety reasons, active360 require that you do the introduction session.

Will I fall in?

Stand Up Paddleboards are wide and well balanced, so you shouldn’t fall in! We can provide wetsuits if you prefer and there will be changing rooms and showers available at the location.

I can’t convince a friend to join me, will I be the only one coming solo?

Nope! We encourage all Gutsy Girls to come down solo to meet you friends, feel free to bring along a friend if you want though, the more the merrier!
