Kayak and SUP hire now available!

Well, it looks as though the storm may be easing a little. We are just popping our heads out of the hatches looking for a hint of these clouds moving on…

We are really pleased to announce that, as the island begins a phased approach to re-opening after the COVID-19 Lockdown, we are also able to make our own phased approach re-opening, our ‘new normal’ will look slightly different than previous years.

Phase 1: Starting this weekend (30 May) we will be open for kayak and SUP hire.  Please note the following changes:  Bookings can only be made online.  Kayaks and SUPs will be hired from the beach in front of the Cosy Nook.  The shop will remain closed.  Please meet us on the beach and be mindful of maintaining social distancing around our staff members and other hirers. 

We will provide buoyancy aids, we cannot provide wetsuits or changing rooms at this time.  Hire sessions are at specific times to allow for all kit to be cleaned thoroughly between uses. 

We have a Risk Assessment and a solid plan in place and are happy to share the details with you upon request if you have any concerns.  We are comfortable with our ‘new normal’.  If you would like to buy your own buoyancy aid or wetsuit we have plenty of stock available at the shop, service is by appointment only during our Phase 1.  

Please note our new mobile number is 450824 to make appointments.

Welcome to 2020 at 7th Wave, we are looking forward to welcoming you on board this summer…
