Active360 team is dedicated to introducing people of all ages and abilities to stand up paddleboarding on the River Thames and London waterways. Whether you are a complete beginner and just want to try a paddle boarding experience in London or are looking to paddle on the Thames independently and want to do it safely – we are here to help!
We have a long standing background in kayaking, canoeing and Stand Up Paddle boarding experiences with an excellent safety record and a passion for sharing the love for paddlesports and environmental awareness.
We have 3 bases in London with the main one at Kew Bridge on the River Thames opened in 2011. We mainly operate on the stretch of the Tidal Thames between Richmond and Hammersmith. We take paddlers beyond Chelsea up to Tower Bridge but this requires special TSK training and awareness of paddling safely on the Tideway.
We aim to offer paddlers of all ages, abilities and skills varied opportunities to take part in paddlesports by offering paddleboarding beginners and intermediate sessions as well as SUP and canoe rentals, opportunities to progress skills and become safe and competent paddlers on the River Thames through our Thames Skills and Knowledge courses. We offer paddleboards demo sessions so you can choose and buy the right equipment. And for those really enthusiastic and good on the water – we give opportunities to train to coach the sport.
“We have 10 years experience in Stand Up Paddleboarding and over that time we have tried out many types of SUP equipment from a range of brands.”
Paul Hyman – Founder
