Had my first paddle boarding taster session at the weekend in Tonbridge with Julie. Was a bit nervous beforehand but Julie was so positive and encouraging. It was a lot of fun. Was great to meet others trying it for the first time too- it helped! Already she has been in touch and helped me decide what to do next. Can’t wait to get out on the water again and learn more! Thank you! Highly recommend it! Booking was easy and communication from Epic Life was spot on.

Staff were friendly and helpful. The equipment appeared in good condition and we had a great time. We had not done Paddle Boarding before and opted out of a supported session, deciding to try it alone. t still worked out just fine. If we do it again I'd like to try somewhere a bit wider as the river is quite narrow here.

Hi Julie, thank you for such a lovely review! We are so pleased that you all had fun paddling with us for your first time. Maybe next time you could try paddling at one of our other sites in Tonbridge, Hastings or Wittersham which are wider so maybe that would be better for you. You are all welcome back anytime :)

We had a fantastic time at the Bodiam site kayaking and paddle boarding on the mega SUP for our daughter's (10th) birthday party. The instructors were great with the children who clearly really enjoyed it. Thank you Epic Life!

I had a great day paddleboarding this week. Cliff is a really good instructor, very patient - needs to be with my dumbo questions :) I decided to try on the river this time to try to hone my 'skills', the first time was on the sea at Hastings, which was also fab. I intend to keep going to build up my confidence. Bodiam is such a beautiful, peaceful location with the castle in view and sheep munching grass on the river bank - which I bumped into quite a bit. I definitely recommend it.
