Paddle Hiring: What to bring

Thank you for booking with Oulton Broad Water Sports Centre.

We are sure you will have a great time and to make sure it is the fun experience you expect we have some suggestions and advice:

  • Participants should bring the following with them:
    • Clothes that can get wet and are appropriate to the weather, no denim (or similar), spare clothing to change into after the activity
    • A plastic bag to put wet kit in at the end of the session
    • Towel
    • Old trainers or sailing shoes, they will get wet and all participants have to wear footwear on the water.
    • A windproof / waterproof cagoule & trousers and a wetsuit are useful, but not essential as the centre will be able to provide some of this equipment.
    • We will provide you with a buoyancy aid and can offer you a waterproof jacket. Wetsuits are also available for a small charge £3 each
  • When the weather is cooler, it is advisable to bring a warm hat; it is always slightly cooler on the water than on land
    • In the hotter months, bring sun cream, a baseball cap / sun hat and a bottle of water
    • Any refreshments you may require during the activity
  • Participants should not wear rings, hooped / dangling earrings or other facial piercings, long necklaces or bracelets on the water.  Long hair should be tied back.
  • All participants should be water confident.
  • Cuts or open wounds should be covered with a waterproof plaster before going on the water.
  • Best to leave valuable items at home.
  • Please bring ID with you.
