Glasgow Paddleboarders Community

Club Membership

Club membership is new to us in 2022 and this is the heart of what we have done since 2018. We have affiliated with WSA and this gives our members insurance on the water during club paddles. There are a number of great benefits from becoming a member. Check it out here.

Facebook Group

Check it out here.

Via Facebook we have created an online free community in a group that we simply call Glasgow Paddleboarders. This is the perfect forum to  ask other people advice about something you might want to know the answer to. This group the reason we have a business today!

We have a kids community too called Glasgow Paddleboarders Pikes. Check that out for age 8+.


Clothing while paddeboarding


What to wear

The Scottish weather throws curveballs at us all very regularly. In the summer we go from wearing our Gla Pad zip shorts and drift Gla Pad t-shirts to being fully wrapped in 5mm neoprene depending on the weather. 

In the winter we wrap up and a drysuit set-up is always going to keep you the warmest. A decent wetsuit can do the job too. A quality aquafleece or cag is a great top layer to keep the warmth in. 5mm boots with neoprene socks help the feet. Wearing a PDF jacket also adds extra warmth.

There is a lot of advice online about what to wear at certain times of the year. We would recommend checking out supboardermag as they have a bunch of advice.  

If you're still not sure, get in touch.
