When you arrive, we’ll introduce each other and I'll give you the SUP safety briefing about the river. I’ll show you how to get on the board and some basic paddle strokes. We will then get you onto the board and you’ll get used to using the board in a kneeling or sitting position, then we will start our journey down river. Along the way, we’ll see lots of local wildlife, temples and we will teach you lots of skills on the board. We’ll also have some fun with a game or two, all related to learning! However, we are flexible, so we’ll always ask if you want to learn more skills, or just enjoy the paddling experience for a while. We will take lots of photos and video clip footage along the way using a really good camera and we will share the footage with you via email. We also conduct intermediate and advanced level sessions in more remote locations once you have completed your first experience.

You will see Kanchanaburi from a unique natural perspective, the river. You will be passing under the famous Bridge Over the River Kwai, which I picked for its historical relevance to the region and the photo op it presents! We will also visit parts of the river that are impassable by boat or kayak, so we are the only people to visit these parts of the river.
