Some of our customer reviews

Never has the river meandering out of Bath looked so gorgeous. The views of the lush banks and overhanging trees, with the feathery white Willow seeds blowing gently across the river, was just a joy to behold and a perfect antidote to too many hours of screen time and work.

Roger is one of those wonderfully relaxed instructors who could introduce each new skill and stroke by making it sound more like a chat amongst friends than teacher/pupil type of vibe.
Our instructor, Roger, was absolutely brilliant. Made us feel at ease even though it was our first experience on a paddleboard, and was really accommodating with last-minute requests (such as wanting to bring our phones in dry bags, and needing a floating strap for glasses)

All in all, I highly recommend the company whether you’re a total beginner (like I was) or more advanced (following the introductory lesson I now believe I could hold up with the professionals - we’ll see)
Merry Christmas to all our incredible adventurers who have made this year so much fun and helped us get Launch Point Adventures off the ground.
We already have some exciting new plans for next year and look forward to sharing them with you in the New Year.
We've enjoyed every minute.
Enjoy your festive break.
Roger and the Launch Point Team.

On this unique experience.  But don't take our word for it.....
"Roger and Aleks were brilliant hosts.
I learnt so much about the local wildlife and how peaceful floating down the Avon in the twilight…. It's totally beautiful.
I glowed for days.
Totally recommend.
Thanks again

An amazing Nocturnal Paddleboarding Adventure last night. 
The weather was perfect, and all the wildlife came to meet us.
There is something truly magical about silently floating down the river as night falls.
Everyone on the tour last night was left star-struck by the wildlife performances from the Beavers, Bats, Kingfishers and Heron.
Massive thank you to @aleks_domanski for being out guide last night and teaching us all so much about the river and the animals that live above, on and in it.
The next Nocturnal Tour is Thursday 17th August. Each tour only has 4 places so please book early to avoid disappointment.

We are so excited by this new adventure! 
Starting this weekend we are partnering with @aleks_domanski to provide a unique stand-up paddleboarding nature adventure tour on the River Avon.
Join us at Batheaston for an easy and relaxing 90-minute late afternoon paddle up and back down the river. 
Learn about the freshwater ecosystem, its wildlife and the basics of stabilized wildlife filming & photography from the water's surface (and peek below with underwater cameras from Alek's specially adapted kayak).
Spaces are limited, and prices are modest - including insurance, board hire, SUP instruction and a contribution towards sustaining the weekly water quality testing program at Batheaston to inform river users and help protect our beautiful river environment.

A little bit of river clean up this week. 
We've been meaning to clear this traffic barrier from the middle of the river for weeks but have always had customers with us.
A private paddle with @aleks_domanski this week gave us the opportunity, and now there is one less piece of rubbish in the river.
Paddling with a heavy water filled barrier is good balance training and very slow!

What a wonderful evening yesterday.  8 paddlers joined us for our regular Wednesday evening beginner #standuppaddleboarding lesson in #batheaston 
Lots of new people joining us including @little_elm_bath who came to see what all the fuss is about and will now be recommending us to the guests in their lovely airbnb.
Needless to say everyone had a great time in this wonderful setting.
We even got the drone out!

Braving the wind and rain at #meadowfest in #batheaston today.  Come and see us and learn about our new adventures coming up for August and September.
@friendsofbatheaston there is no such thing as the wrong weather!
Popped into @thebathdelico in Widcombe today and found the @bathandwiltshireparent magazine open on the article about Launch Point Adventure.
One person has defiantly read it!😀
Thanks @bathandwiltshireparent, for such a great article - business is booming.

A rare two-heron event last night on an intermediate private lesson.
Such a fantastic night with two ladies who were keen to push on and make it all the way to #warleighweir - we were rewarded by some amazing wildlife encounters.
#paddleboarding #heron #beaver #visitbath #yourbathcity #riveravonbath 
Private lessons can be booked at anytime an instructor is available just give us a call or fill our the forms on our website and we will have you paddling further for less effort.
The best month of the year. July is all about enjoying the long evenings.
What better way to relax and unwind after work than to join your friends or family for one of the Wednesday evening Public Lessons or arrange a private family paddle?
This month we are introducing public intermediate as well as our beginner lessons on a Wednesday night.
So if you already have a paddleboard but want to improve your technique or learn how to dance around your board without swimming then come and join the fun.
Paddle as the sun sets over #littlesolsburyhill

No paddleboarding this weekend as our founder is off raising money and blisters for the @youth_adventure_trust attempting the #3peakschallenge 
Roger (aka @bootsandboard) is part of a 6 man team (4 walkers and 2 drivers) who are attempting to complete Ben Nevis, Scafell Pike and Snowdon in 24 hours. Madness!
Please help him by leaving messages of support below, liking, sharing or donating (link in bio).
There are still a few places left on next Wednesday's public paddleboarding session - Roger will be there but who knows if he will be able to stand by then!

We've had a fantastic first week. 
So many great customers and already several 5 star reviews on the Launch Point Adventures Google Profile page.
This one was from a private lesson we did last week. It was a one-to-one lesson with someone who had tried before but could not stand up. (You can read the whole review below).
If this sounds like you, please send us a message or visit our website - we would love to help you with one of our public or private lessons soon.
"Wow! Great couple of hours spent paddle boarding on the gloriously tranquil river Avon at Batheaston with Roger Chandler today; super experienced and qualified paddle board instructor.
I had tried SUP boarding whilst on holiday with my kids in France but having fallen in numerous times with ‘jelly legs’ and getting ‘destroyed’ by my kids and wife who were all naturals - I decided to ask for Roger’s help on this sunny evening in June.
Roger started with some basic techniques and safety instructions on dry land at their private pontoon in the centre of Batheaston village. Once that was done, we were straight into the water. Roger’s calm, reassuring and non-fussy approach got me through the early wobbles in a matter of 5 minutes and whilst there was the inevitable tumble into the Avon - Roger was on hand to instruct me how to get back on and try again with loads of encouragement.
If you are new to paddle boarding - come and talk to Roger, but similarly - if you’ve done a bit already and you want to learn some more technique, he’s your man. By the end of our session I was standing up in complete confidence. Great fun !"
You cannot ask for more in the evenings at the moment. The sun is out, the water warm and the flow slow. Paddling home as the sun sets over solsbury hill is the best end to a great paddle.
Our private lessons run most evenings or late afternoons during the week and there is no better way to de-stress after work and have a shared adventure with your children.
Our public lessons run every Wednesday night. We are full tonight but there are still a few places available with our "bring a friend for free" deal over the next two Wednesdays.
Tag the person you would bring for free.😀
Busy day on the river today with a private and public beginner lesson. 
We do love working with families who come out to have a shared outdoor experience
Today we had Dad, 2 Children and the children's Uncle and it was great to see them helping each other learn new techniques and gaining confidence on the boards. 
Always makes us smile to hear the family banter between them when everything did not go according to plan!
Come and join us on our Wednesday evening sessions and Bring a Friend for free in June. Link in Bio
A great 1 to 1 lesson yesterday afternoon. Started with the classic Elvis Legs and difficulty standing up but halfway through the lesson he cracked it and we had a great paddle upstream, learning some different strokes.
A wonderful day for it - loving this summer burst - even the river is warm.
Come and find out the wonders of paddleboarding with our public and private lessons.
Great to see Herons on the river this morning.  Probably the most.common of our wildlife spots on the #batheaston paddles. 
Second place usually goes to the Kingfisher and if we are lucky the Otters and Beavers can make an appearance.
Come and enjoy the tranquility of the river with us.  Join us as a beginner or come and learn new skills to help you paddle further or faster.
To get Launch Point Adventures off the ground (all puns intended!) we are offering beginner group paddleboard lessons on a Wednesday evening or private lessons on some Saturdays/Sundays in June.
To celebrate the milestone of finally launching Launch Point Adventures, you can bring a friend or family member for free on the Wednesday night sessions in June.
