Young People 

NEW....   2020 Summer Activity Days Pershore 
PADDLEBOARDING & Sit on Top Kayaks 

We are now able to run some very special activity days for young people. 

We understand why this year these sessions are more important than ever 

  • A chance to get out the house and do a healthy outdoor activity 

  • A chance to play with other young people (at strict social distancing) 

  • A reward - home tuition, chores etc are all good, especially if there is the great incentive of an up and coming activity session booked with Bonkers 

  • As well as the physical benefits there is also the huge boost to metal wellbeing of getting out on the water and having fun 

How have we adapted these sessions
 How we will make them work within the Govt Guidelines 

  • limited to 5 people per session

  • PRIVATE site - not open to the public (and definitely NOT based in a public car park)

  • All activities will be socially distanced - so only using individual paddleboards and/or individual sit on top kayaks

  • Buoyancy Aids not used more than once (we have 100+ so we can offer fresh ones each time).

  • We have a robust (and over the top) cleaning system in place

  • We strictly limit the amount of people onsite - you will receive instructions on how and when to drop off and pick up. No spectators or other people onsite unless by strict prior arrangement. 


BUT - whilst these are all vital, the session itself will be our usual unique blend of SAFE and FUN. Also, we pride ourselves in making sure the participants learn life enhancing skills and of course proper paddle techniques.    


ALL DATES FOR 2020 August are NOW FULL (as paddleboard centres can only have 5 at a time due to Govt Guidelines)  


if you can organise a group of 5 young people - 

then we can arrange a session especially for you... 

£100 per session (up to 5 participants) 


These are for AGE 12 - 16  

(if you have young children that fancy a go, than you could do a family hire or family tuition sessions).

Paddleboarding is just the best for your school group activities. It is EASY, FUN and SAFE

It will also be the activity that will generate the most response if you ask a group of pupils what they would like to do

Bonkers run PROPER TUITION SESSIONS where people can stay dry if they wish to.

BBC Countryfile

On 4th November Matt Baker joined us for some activities on the water.

The group were from New College Worcester. They had been with us for a 5 week Paddleboarding course, but unfortunately, the day of filming was sooooo windy, that rather than cancel, we decided to have some fun in the Katakanus instead. check out the video


Bell Boating

Bellboats are a great way of getting groups of young people active in the outdoors

Here are just a few Pics of Alex running recent (pre-covid) Bell Boat sessions........

DofE expeditions -PADDLEBOARDS & Sit on Tops

As Specialists in Paddleboarding, Alex and Kim  have also been employed by other organisations to run DofE Silver expeditions.

The pics show some of our trips on the Wye and welsh canals.

The Bonkers Tandem Mega Sups (we have 6 of them) are perfect for carrying gear and also great to paddle distance (do NOT confuse with other brands tandems - these are unique in their design....)  Bonkers also have a fleet of 10 double sit on tops, that's enough for 3 groups of 6-7 kayakers ! 


Professional Safe and Fun

Bonkers operating procedures, insurance, equipment, instructors and everything about what we do is second to none in quality, safety and the all round positive experience.

Alex and Kim have been setting up centres since 1993, and settled on what we believe is one of the safest and best location in the UK - the beautiful River Avon.

All our group bookings for under 18's take place on the flat water (less than grade 1 - very sheltered water) close to our purpose built centre, within a few feet of the bank and close to our changing rooms, facilities and hot showers.

if you would like - please arrange a time to come and visit our site, check out our onshore facilities (showers, changing rooms, free cup of tea etc), see our new equipment and meet the team.
