It was a warm Sunday afternoon. The ducks quacked and the swans preened.
The sun was out and 13 people turned up to our inaugural Stand Up Paddle Boarding sessions. We had a fully booked session. We had both families and individuals participate.
We toured around the Mill Pond, Lock Cut and went up to the islands. We covered how to paddle stroke, reverse paddle turn, and the tricky step back turn.
All participants did very well. We had a 100% success rate where everyone stood up on their paddle board; and this includes some who previously had not been able to do that.
We had a great day paddling amongst the ducks and the swans.
Thanks to The Outdoor Academy for the SUP loan and to Claire and Penny for their support.
We are set to hold another session on 30th September. Visit our online calendar for further information.
