Have a go at one of the UK's fastest emerging watersports and go paddleboarding on the famous River Thames. Ideal for a couple of daredevils who aren't afraid to get wet, get to grips with all the essential paddleboarding basics with tuition from a friendly, experienced instructor. Start with a safety briefing, before learning board handling techniques, prone paddling, self-rescue, foot position, standing up and board control. When you've both gained some confidence, take a short trip along the River Thames, taking in some of the beautiful sights of the famous waterway. This river based experience is a must try for a pair of watersports enthusiasts.
