Adrian The Kayak Coach will be offering a variety of different crafts for hire at this years Into the Trees which include single sit on top kayaks, double sit on top kayaks, Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP’s) and tandem Canoes. If you want to take yourself or your family on an adventure along the water this could be for you.
Sit On Tops are one of the most popular forms of kayak. Sit on kayaks are extremely stable and very safe thanks to their open style design. Sit-on-tops are ideal for beginners and good fun for all the family to enjoy. Built-in scupper holes allow sit-on-tops self drain should you capsize or use them in rougher/surf conditions.
Canoes benefit from a large amount of space which is ideal for carrying the whole family on an adventure along the waterways of the Elderflower Fields Festival.
Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP’s) are one of the fastest growing areas of paddlesport. Paddle boarding will provide you with a great core workout as well. Almost every muscle in the body is used at some point.
Boat hire is available on a very sheltered river within the grounds of the Elderflower Fields at Pippingford Park. Please note no coaching or tuition is included with boat hire.
