Frequently Asked Questions

What do I need to bring?2023-06-23T16:31:04+00:00

For Genuine Adventures water activities, this includes paddleboarding and ghyll scrambling. You will need the following with you on the day:

  • Swimming Costume
  • A pair of old shorts to where on the outside of the wetsuit
  • Good fitting footwear like old trainers or boots (will get very wet) flip flops, crocs, and watershoes are not appropriate.
  • Towel
  • Full change of clothes
Hard board or inflatable?2023-01-22T22:34:59+00:00

This one’s a personal choice. Inflatables are typically more durable, more stable and take up less storage space, but they’re also less rigid (some manufacturers are working to improve this). Hard boards may be more convenient, more aesthetically pleasing and possess a wider range of capabilities.

Is stand up paddle boarding (SUP) something I can do?2023-01-22T22:32:55+00:00

One of the most common questions. Most people can—and they love it! It is relatively easy to learn…most pick up the basics the first day of learning. Still a bit of a secret…all ages and skills levels can participate.
