Blog #19 – we continue…

We’ve had another busy week paddleboarding in this amazing heatwave – more SUP Club, more Race Club, more events, and more lessons… We continued last Wednesday evening with a bit of a breezy SUP Club down the Ray from Two Tree Island.

We’ve had yet another full-on weekend – this time, it’s been all about long-distance racing as Dunc was competing at the 70km UK SUP Norfolk Ultra 2-day endurance event.

Blog #13 – on SUPfari #2

We’ve had a great couple of weeks – a bit busy for blogging, but we’ve finally had half a chance to catch up today! The highlight of the fortnight has to be SUPfari #2 over the late May Bank Holiday weekend as almost 20 of us went out west to Bigbury in South Devon for five...
