I booked this a little last minute and Tony and Gemma were great and very responsive which made it very easy to organise. We rented boards for a few hours and paddled up to Chichester where we stopped at a cafe for coffee and cake before heading back. We had a great time, it was something different to do and good fun!

We took part in one of Tony & Gemma's Intro Paddle Boarding session and so glad we did!!

Firstly they use the perfect location at Chichester Canal, you get calm safe waters to learn in and some great views.

All the kit is provided so we just had to turn up and after an initial briefing and explanation of the basics, we were on the water. Tony and Gemma do a fantastic job of supporting everyone and teaching all of us.

This was also evident because within 10 minutes they'd coached all of us to get on the boards and before we knew it, everyone was stood up. Throughout the time on the water, they teach more of the skills needed to get to grips with paddle boarding.

Everyone learns at their own pace in a great relaxed atmosphere, with Tony and Gemma giving a mix of group instruction and small 1:1 tips as you paddle your way along the canal.

Would highly recommend Tony, Gemma and TJ Board Hire for anyone looking to experience paddle boarding, you will not be disappointed! Really looking forward to our next paddle board session.

Thank you to Gemma and Tony for a great introduction to paddle boarding. My beginner session was given to me as a gift and I thoroughly enjoyed the two hours which flew by in no time. Instructions from Gemma were calm and I did not feel rushed but ended the session feeling a lot more confident to get more practice on my own. Location was perfect as conditions are great for a beginner who has little balance and is also very scenic. I look forward to coming back to TJ board hire in the future to rent boards and join in the socials to get more practice. Thanks again for an enjoyable day.

We had a fantastic afternoon learning to paddle board on the Chichester Canal with Gemma and Tony. They are both calm and patient instructors with a great sense of fun - book a session with them, you will love it! We paddled from Hunston to Chichester, had a cream tea and paddled back. A perfect summer afternoon, we can't wait to go again! They both went out of their way to make a birthday experience first class and memorable, I cannot rate them highly enough!
