The Llanberis based canoe and kayaking company, Surf-Lines
, will be making a splash when they host a free ‘Give It a Go Day’, on Sunday, April 25th.
They are opening their doors to the public and holding a day-long event aimed at getting people out on the water and enjoying it.
Phil Nelson, Managing Director explained: “Last year the lake was off limits to kayakers and canoeists for much of the summer because of a problem with blue green algae (previous news
), which was pretty devastating for local businesses situated on and around Llyn Padarn.”
This year things are looking better and the lake is currently fully open to recreational users (BBC
He added: “This spring we really wanted to make sure people could start enjoying this fantastic location again so we decided to host an open day to give people the chance to get back out on the water. Kayaks and canoes are a great way for all the family to explore and have an adventure right here on our doorstep. ”
There’s no need to be an expert either. If you’ve never paddled before there will introductory courses running all day (booking is essential). If you’ve got some experience but would like to try out some of the newest boat designs on the market then the latest models will all be available to try.
“We really hope this can be a great day out for the family, something that might just kick-start a new hobby. We know that in these recession times a canoe or kayak might seem like a really luxurious item. But we’ve got some great boats that can suit a budget conscious boater. We also just want to give people the opportunity to start exploring their local environment again, “ explained Mr. Nelson.
Throughout the day there will be expert advice available from Surf-Lines staff and the chance to meet the people who actually make these fantastic boats.
On the water sessions will be running from 10am-4pm and the Paddlesport Shop will be open from 9.00am-5.30pm. Surf-Lines is located next to Llyn Padarn in Llanberis.
