AS Watersports were brilliant. We were offered wetsuits to wear and given life jackets. Our tutor gave us free rein to do whatever we wanted with our two hours. As complete novices we wanted to be taught how to do it properly. The two hours flew by and we had a fantastic time. Having had a dunking in the canal, we were offered a warm shower at the canoe club next door. Tried all the kayaks available. Superb value for money.

Have hired single/double Kayaks as well as trying out SUPing for the first time this summer, all kit - top quality, staff very friendly/helpful - have also purchased some nice merchandise from the retail side as well - the business is an overall credit to Exeter Quayside.

All vessels were in tip top condition. Good advice was given about timings to pubs along the way. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Can't wait to try out different kayaks. Very reasonable hire charge. I would highly recommend going our with a group of friends from the quay heading towards Turf Locks - you meet lots of like minded people on the way.

Took a course with last week with Liam learning to roll my kayak. By the end of the two hour session I could roll my boat with a float on the paddle without much air in it. I practised again after learning the technic and can roll without aid. Money well spent. Thank you
