Stonehaven Paddleboarding COVID 19 Procedures

SUP SOCIALS

About

This is the next step for those that have completed a Beginner Lesson and one of my Tours successfully or are already a competent paddler on the sea.

Separate sessions will be organised for Adults only and for Families/Kids.

  • Sunrise and Sunset Paddles
  • Coastal Tours around Stonehaven
  • Technique Sessions
  • Paddle and a   Pint 
  • Ice Cream and Chipper Paddles
  • Surf Sessions
  • Road Trips visiting Coastal, Loch and River  locations across Scotland with some involving overnight stays.

I do not have specific dates and times for any of the SUP Socials as they all depend on sea and weather conditions so can only advertise a week in advance max.

The normal cost of activity is stated below however this may change for some of the activities such as Road Trips to other locations.

I have a Whats App group for SUP Social communication which all those up to standard are free to join to keep in the loop! Just pingg me a message and I can send the link.


Duration: 1hr

Cost:£20 or £10 with own kit

(Please note – under 18yrs must have a Parent or Guardian present on the water throughout)

Stonehaven Paddleboarding COVID 19 Procedures

I will be staging my opening process and the operating of my activities in accordance with guidance set by the Scottish Government, Watersports Governing Bodies and advice from the Coast Guard and RNLI. Many of these procedures are already standard practice but due to COVID-19 additional measures are needed. All procedures will be monitored closely, and changes will be made as regulations are updated.

  • Anyone showing any symptoms of COVID-19 will not be permitted to participate in activities
  • If you, or any of the members of your household display any symptoms of COVID-19 in the 14 days leading up to your activity, I request that you contact me to rearrange or cancel your lesson
  • Recommended safe social distances will be kept during your time visiting and throughout activities
  • There will be non-contact booking and payment in operation
  • Non-contact equipment pick-up and drop off for renting equipment
  • Class sizes will be in accordance to government guidelines
  • Lessons and tours will be one-to-one; however, larger groups are permitted only if they are from the same household
  • Hand washing and hand sanitisers will be available for use prior to and after activities
  • All equipment will be regularly cleaned and disinfected prior to and after use
  • Paddler Requirements
  • Must respect physical distance (minimum 2-metres) between instructor and yourself
  • All customers must be able to swim a minimum of 25-metres and be fit and healthy as the activity requires a reasonable level of fitness
  • Customers must be prepared to self-rescue; at the start of the activity, time will be allocated for demonstration and practice
  • In an event that the instructor has to enter this 2-metre space or there is an unexpected incident/rescue, extra measures such as distance rescue techniques, face mask/visor, latex gloves for the rescuer are in place
  • Changing Rooms will be unavailable, so it will be required that you get changed by your car or on the beach/harbour front 
  • To keep track of contact, a record of everyone participating in activities (including non-paddlers) will be kept, ensuring rapid contact tracing can occur if someone does fall unwell
  • Paddlers can use their own gear. As normal, the instructor will check equipment to ensure it is appropriate for the activities, but will not physically handle the boards, leashes, paddles
  • Respect all wildlife, staying more vigilant than usual
  • Respect all other water users by keeping your distance and demonstrate a willingness to share
