SUP & Kayak Hire

Experienced paddleboarders and kayakers can hire equipment and go on their own self-guided adventure on the Thames. Our hire sessions give you all of the kit you need to go paddling. After a safety briefing we put you on the water from our slipway, and the rest of the time is yours. Go to the pub, float behind idyllic islands, or use the time for a work-out. It's your choice! All SUP hire sessions can be mixed with kayak hire too. These fun, stable vessels are great for beginners. Just add the kayaks to your session when booking.

Prices start at £35 for two-hours, and there are various paddle and board upgrades available. You can even hire a wetsuit if you're feeling chilly.

Note that for SUP hire specifically, you and everyone in your group must be competent paddleboarders, and either have had at least one previous lesson with Paddle Richmond or hold a stand-up paddleboarding qualification from a recognised awarding body e.g. BSUPA, British Canoeing or WSA.

Prior experience for hiring a SUP or kayak is absolutely essential for everyone in your party. If this is not the case then you'll to take one of our SUP or Kayak sessions first. This is for your safety, and the safety of others on the busy Thames. Rental sessions are typically available May-September. Click on Book Now to see all of the activities we have available.
