Type: Introductory Taster Sessions to Moving Water

Suitability: For the main taster session if you want to go on the water, you should be confident capsizing ideally with a spray deck, however for those that are not there is some neighbouring flat water that is suitable for all levels too.

Location: Coxes Lock, Bourneside Road, Addlestone, KT15 2JD

Food: Please bring with suitable lunch, snacks and drinks and ideally a sealed tub and dry bag to transport them in.


We shall once again be hosting another introduction to moving water with an opportunity to learn the basics of moving flow and practice ferry gliding and use of edge control. Please note there are no changing facilities or toilets at this site and that it is a residential area so please be mindful of others in the area if changing or using the paths.

The main taster session shall be approx. 60 mins long. The introductory session shall start on the flat, progress to the flow and then up to the slide. Due to the nature of Cox’s Lock the session its possible to spectate the whole session and so it shall also be possible for you to leave at any point during the session so long as you let the volunteers know. Sometimes the session will even be extended if there is sufficient volunteering and participant interests to do so.
