Isle of Wight SUP Circumnavigation

Paddling around the Isle of Wight has been on my ‘to do’ list for a number of years now.

Paddling across from the mainlandContinue reading “Isle of Wight SUP Circumnavigation”

From Scotland to Syria

A couple of weeks ago I committed to complete the Great Glen Challenge. This is a non-stop 97km paddle along the Caledonian Canal, from Fort William to Inverness. I have decided to do this on my Stand-Up-Paddle Board. Last week I saw a video on social media detailing the events in Aleppo and focusing onContinue reading “From Scotland to Syria”

SUP Armada 2016

They say that your perception of time is directly linked to the number of memories you are making. A day that creates lots of new memories flashes by at the time, but when re-run as a memory seems to have lasted for ever!  This means that the key to living a long fulfilling life is theContinue reading “SUP Armada 2016”
