We had a brilliant time paddle boarding, the lake at Ripley is very scenic and we were lucky with the weather. Live for Today were very accommodating with a change of date and ages of our children. Our younger daughter struggled to start with but the instructor was encouraging and she eventually got the hang of it. Highly recommend!
