What if I have medical/ health conditions?

SUP is a great but gentle full body workout.

Where do we park and meet you?

Once you arrive at Woodford Mill, NN144DU. If you park in the overflow car park at the top of the hill, in front of the newly built wooden structure, as you walk down the hill towards the Tearooms we are directly opposite the road by Sunshine Scully the yellow boat. You will see the boards and our team there waiting to meet you.

Please be aware that RUSHDEN LAKES TRAFFIC on the A45 can often delay your arrival so better to plan an extra 5 minutes into your journey if coming this way.
