What to bring with you when hiring:

Kayaking and Paddleboarding does not require any experience, however being able to swim is essential!


We have rescue boats on standby all day with highly experienced and qualified instructors who are always happy to help with any questions you may have, and give you a few top tips.

We would recommend that you come paddleboarding or kayaking in the mornings due to there being very little wind and the beach is generally not busy around that time.


We don’t take bookings for hires due to how changeable the weather can be. However there are nearly always boards available, the maximum wait would be about 15 minutes should it be a super busy day.

If you’d like to play it safe give us a call before you leave to come down and we can let you know the conditions and availability.
