I’m hoping the worst of the winter is now past – days are getting longer so life is good.
Christmas involved a fair amount of paddleboarding around the Essex marshes with my dad – we got some awesome SUP conditions.
For a bit of a change we hit Afan in wales for some mountain biking after Christmas, and finally yesterday we got out for a windsurf at Daymer Bay in Cornwall (UK). Some great conditions and loads of people out. I managed to land 3 back loops on port tack in a row, which for me is pretty unusual! That helped make the day really good, but more so was the fact that by just going to the beach we bumped into loads of good friends and had a great post Christmas catch up. One of the best things about SUP and Windsurfing is the friends you make from it – priceless
On a final note if you want to see a great new UK based stand up paddleboarding ( SUP ) magazine check out SUPboardermag.com Its been hard being a super keen Paddleboarder in the UK SUP scene without a good online magazine to watch SUP videos on, but this is really filling that void. Happy days.
Its been a great 2012 and I am looking forward to an even better 2013 – Happy NEW YEAR everyone!
