GUTSY GIRLS | PADDLEBOARDING FAQS

 

I’ve already paddleboarded before, do I need to do the Introduction Session?

Yes! If you have not SUPed with Gutsy Girls or Active360 you do need to complete the Introduction Session. This ensures we can go for health and safety for paddling on the canals and Thames. We keep our ‘onland’ demonstrations short and sweet to get you on the water and paddling as fast as possible.

Once you’ve paddled with us, you can join our other sessions as a returning paddler.

Can I cancel my session?

Sorry to hear you won’t be joining us, we do no offer refunds on our SUP Sessions however you can reschedule up to 3 days in advance. You can change your session by following the link and instructions on your confirmation email.

Where should I meet you?
