Do you reckon we go?

Hoping that these will be repeated at some point, as I'm away on the 19th and currently have Covid so can't go out to play this weekend 😏

The @watercooledsports Summerpaddleseries kicked off in the beautiful Macandrew Bay with all the event proceeds going to @wildlifehospitaldunedin . A special place caring for injured native NZ wildlife. Thank you

just a reminder that SUP SAFE and SUP RESCUE courses will be happening next weekend at Pt Chev sailing club in Auckland.

The SUP SAFE course is a 3 hour workshop looking how to choose the right safety equipment for your paddling and how to use it, understanding the conditions, interpreting forecasts, knowing what to do when things go wrong and much more.

The SUP RESCUE course is a fun and empowering workshop and practical session. Learn how to get a casualty onto a paddleboard in deep water, how to get them ashore, how to take another board under tow even in the wildest conditions and a whole bunch of other really cool techniques that every stand-up paddleboarder should know. With these skills you can save someone from drowning!
You are going to get wet, so come prepared! You’ll need a board as well.

Please note we can only take a maximum of 12 on each rescue course, so please reserve your spot on the Facebook events page (links below). The SUP SAFE courses are open to all.

The schedule is as follows:
