We had near-perfect weather for our relaxing paddle from Brecon Basin on Thursday - we even had a slight tail wind on the way back!
Sup-Pup Bruce was treated like royalty by all passers-by and only took a dip once! 🙈

OK, so it wasn't this bad, but still...
Safety is our primary concern so, whilst we were looking forward to sharing some epic tales of our fishing adventure here...
Unfortunately, we had to cancel the trip due to the wind! 😭
Nonetheless, better safe than sorry, so we always make sure our trips are as safe as they can be, including keeping a close eye on the weather and water conditions in the time leading up to our trips.

Try and position yourself in the middle of your board when paddling in normal conditions.
By starting with your knees in the middle of the board, when you stand up your feet will naturally end up in a similar position.
Back at Radyr Weir again this weekend for some awesome SUP lessons - and the weather held out for us!
Some can see SUP as limited to those who can 'Stand-up' paddleboard.
We disagree - you stand up when you're ready! Or not at all! Kneel down. Kneel up. You'll find no judgement from us. Maybe sit on your bum and paddle because your knees can't take all that kneeling! We're here to make paddleboarding as comfortable and accessible as we can for you.

I know many of you have seen this before, but I also have been out with a few people recently who have fallen foul to inflating with the valve down! 🤦 🤦 😂
Remember, you will lose significant pressure if you forget - so, pop the valve up and get pumping again!
I frequently get asked if a licence is needed for paddling in the locations I use for guided tours and lessons.
That depends where we're paddling, but also the licences offer so much more than just allowing access.
For me, I think the best licence is from Canŵ Cymru / Canoe Wales as it currently offers more, but it is genuinely down to looking at what each licence offers and checking which is better for YOU.
You can really tell spring is here - the treated us to nesting swans, and the cutest ducklings!
how many cygnets do you think we will need to tentatively paddle around this year? 😱 😁

I love paddling the River Tawe as it passes through the heart of There are great historical buildings, stunning new creations and there's plenty of wildlife to see too!
We tried out our new fishing hand-lines and guess what we caught? Nothing! 🤣 🤣
I blame the time of year, still too early for the mackerel I think. 😶 That's the only reason.

We always use at least 3 different forecasts as they all usually differ slightly!
If you're not able to stand or kneel for long periods of time, that's no problem! We can take seats and kayak paddles with us on any trip, so you can sit comfortably for the whole of the trip, or just when your knees can't take any more!
