I now offer paddleboard lessons or tours in collaboration with Lee from Dittisham Boats  (hire boards direct from Lee).  I've really fallen in love with paddleboarding, it's a great compliment to sailing as it's lovely when there's no wind!  Early mornings or evenings are great times to explore the river.  We use redpaddle inflatable boards but my own board is a beautiful one from the local company Indiboards.  Phone me on 07973520515 for more info.
