Did you know?

If you want to learn how to paddleboard with people of your own age and ability,  Salcombe Paddleboarding will do what we can to schedule your lesson so you are part of a group of people ‘in the same boat’ as you, so to speak. 

Our group lessons are perfect for children and adults who like to learn in groups, and more affordable than one-on-one lessons.

Just for Kids

At high tide, a series of pontoons create a man-made ‘kiddy pool’ in the Salcombe Estuary – perfect for young children who want to take their first step into the wonderful world of paddleboarding. This is photo heaven for mums and dads, and unforgettable fun for the little ones.
