Much has been made of the health benefits of sauna bathing. With good reason. Physically, nothing is more reinvigorating than a deep, healthy sweat every day. Tension fades. Muscles unwind. Mentally, we emerge relaxed, revived and ready for whatever the day may bring.

Come and enjoy this converted horse box into this awesome wood fired Sauna from @SaunaboxHQ a local transportable Sauna service. 

Enjoy a relaxing paddle taking in the beautiful surroundings whilst inhaling fresh morning air in to your lungs to start the day off right.  As you head back to the riverbank you will smell the sweet aromas of the most beautiful local wood which will have been lit to heat the Sauna Rocks ready for you to rest and relax and take in all the benefits from Sauna time before heading about your day.

What better opportunity to bring together two awesome activities, giving you the chance to unwind, de-stress and relax whilst at the same time improving your heath and wellbeing.

 

Sup’N’Sauna – Social Paddle

A great opportunity to enhance your social Sup experience by attending one of our monthly Sauna events. We love it when people paddle along the river chatting, getting to know each other.

Another great place to spark great conversations is in the beautiful hand made wood fired Sauna. This converted horse box by Tom is beautifully crafted to provide you with another place to off load and get to know friends new and old.  After your Sauna session why not cool off with a cold watering can shower or a dip in an ice bath. 

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.

These sessions are slightly different to out usual Social paddles. Arrive from 6 and set off for your paddle from 6:30 with friends new and old. This is a non guided paddle. You will be given a time slot for your Sauna Session. There is a max of 6 people per time.

EQUIPMENT HIRE is £15 PER SESSION or £20 including Sauna,

Feel free to bring your own equipment – please do make sure you have a safety leash which is mandatory for all our social paddles.

PLEASE NOTE ALL ATTENDEES REGARDLESS OF USING YOUR OWN BOARDS or HIRING ARE REQUIRED TO BOOK IN ORDER FOR US TO COMPLY WITH OUR SAFETY PROCEDURES.

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.

Check in from 6pm for 6.30pm start.
