Wittering SUP/Yoga/Swim HQ is based at Arden Sailing Club where we have toilets, changing rooms, light refreshments, picnic tables and secure parking onsite.
Swimming costume/old clothes/wetsuit
Water shoes or a pair of old trainers
Change of clothes (When you emerge from the water, even on a hot day you can experience an “after drop” in your body temperature, it is really important to bring something warm to wear)
We will provide you with a brightly coloured tow float, this is essential open water swim gear and we recommend that you get one if you are planning on swimming in open water.
3What should you wear?
Between April and mid May you will need to wear a wetsuit which you will need to provide yourselves. From Mid May onwards wetsuits are optional, the water will steadily climb to its peak in August of around 18 degrees where it will stay until the end of September.
During the warmer months I recommend just a swimming costume or leggings and a t-shirt if you prefer. If you have any circulation problems neoprene gloves can be very helpful and water shoes are a must (old trainers will do in a pinch).
When we meet we will discuss this as part of our initial briefing and make sure you are kitted out appropriately.
Goggles (if you wear contact lenses it is advisable to wear goggle during your swim)
Ear plugs (if you have inner ear issues these can be really helpful)
Please arrive 15 mins prior to your session time in order that you can get changed into your gear.
5Feeling a little unsure?
New skills outside of our comfort zone can always seem a little daunting, but we are always SO much more capable than we think we are. We are passionate about making sure everybody feels safe, confident and happy with their experience; our approach is gentle, supportive and compassionate and you have nothing to worry about; we’ll look after you :)
6Refund & Cancellation Policy
We have to plan ahead and session spaces are limited so we offer a full refund if you notify us of your cancellation 2 weeks before your session or a 50% refund a week before your booked session (gift voucher sessions are non-refundable).
We only operate under the safest conditions, as such if the weather (wind), or water (flow/flood) conditions are not appropriate for beginner’s lessons we will notify you and arrange a more suitable date for your experience.
