It looks so hard yet this sport is remarkably easy on flat water, particularly if you are shown the correct techniques and are on the right board. We are confident that all of our clients will be successfully stand up paddling by the end of their first lesson.
This sport works every single muscle in your body the whole time you are balancing on the board and yet you don't feel like you are doing anything at all. As a bonus the paddling motion builds core strength and helps turn that keg back into a six-pack!

The fruit for the red wines is selected from high quality areas of Southern Australia, and is handpicked and transported by refrigerated vehicle to the cellar, where the grapes are crushed and pressed and then transferred into American and French oak barrels, in an air-conditioned, dark, quiet cellar for up to five years before bottling. Traditional methods are used including room temperature fermentation and wood basket pressing. One of the unique features of Salet wines is that they have a smooth rich structure, and seem never to spoil.
