PLEASE NOTE –  IF YOU HAVE NO PADDLE EXPERIENCE YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO ATTEND OUR SOCIAL PADDLES OR EVENTS

Our social sessions are designed for paddlers with some experiences, so if you have never paddled before and would like to join us we recommend attending one of our learn2SUP sessions to gain an understanding of the basics beforehand! Our team of qualified instructors will be out on the water with you during our socials and love nothing more than to help you improve but basic knowledge of paddling is needed to get us all out on the water safely.

Come and join us for our incredibly popular Social Paddles.

A great opportunity to meet new people, paddle, chat and then join us afterwards for some food and a drink at one of our awesome riverside pub locations.

In 2021 our social paddles grew week on week, giving those who are new to the sport the opportunity to practice their new hobby with friends old and new.

We aim to set off from about 6:00 and back off the water for 8:00 where you can either head off home or join some of the paddlers for a light bight and a drink back at the pub.

Our social paddles offer you a gentle paddle enabling you to switch off, catch up with friends old and new and enjoy the beautiful tranquility paddle boarding has to offer.

EQUIPMENT HIRE is £15 PER SESSION

Norfolk Paddle boards offers a range of lessons enabling you to get started with this popular sport. Why not book a session today. All lesson participants receive a free ticket to attend a social paddle after a lesson. 

Can I bring my dog?

It’s not a yes, and its’ not a no! We love paddling dogs, we have our very own Torvi who joins us for all our social paddles. One stipulation is the dog has paddled before and you are also a proficient paddler yourself. Drop us a message on Socials so we can have a chat.

Can I bring my kids along?

Just like our love for our puppy paddlers, we love to see young people getting involved and families coming together in this awesome sport. Yes you can bring your child, they need to be above 8 and must be wearing a buoyancy aid. We have some little people ones available if you don’t have your own. They are also your responsibility and you must keep them in easy distance at all times. 

Can I bring my own board?

For Sure!! please please come along if you have your own board. This is great for those also looking to buy their own as they get the opportunity to have a chat with you about your experience and how you find your own SUP. There is a small fee of £10 or sign up to our membership and bring your board for FREEEEEEE 🙂
