Kevin, Charlotte Eva and Rhys would like to welcome you to Explore the Lakes, Lake District newest Mobile Paddle Board Hire company. Born and bread in the Lake District we come with a lot of knowledge about the local area and of course paddling areas to go that are safe for everyone to explore. I myself have been doing watersports activities since i was 11 years old, mainly Kayaking and Canoeing on rivers, lakes and the sea. I have worked in France, Wales and mostly the Lake District over the years as a Watersports instructor. Over the last few years I have got into paddle boarding along with my wife who also kayaks and canoes. (don't tell her though, but she is better than me at paddle boarding). As for Eva she loves being on the water especially on the big family board as it is more stable and she gets to spend more time with us jumping on and off the board.
So if you see us around come and say hi.

Explore the Lakes would like all of our customers to read this poster. This has some very good advice to help you keep safe on the water throughout the year. If you have any questions about this campaign please do not hesitate in asking. Let's all have fun on the water, but remember to PLOT your paddle and stay safe.
Boat, kayak and paddle board users often regularly transfer equipment from one water body to another and therefore play an important role in the prevention and detection of freshwater INNS. The advice given here will aid users to prevent the introduction and spread of INNS.
Explore The Lakes will do everything to stop the spread of any disease, but we would also like your help. By following these simple steps above we can stop the spread and protect our wonderful waterways that we have in the Lake District.
