    We are currently in Pateley Bridge...looking for any quietish wildcamping Poi near to water that we could use a stand up paddleboard (sup) we are beginners so don't want anything too extreme. Lake District possibly? Open to suggestions!

    One of the best places I learnt was Poole near sandbanks but it would be a long drive for you when the tide is in it is only 3 ft deep

    Had our first go this morning. Loved it!. Only £12 and we got showers too … Result! Watch a few videos first to learn how to kneel and then stand. You really don’t need to pay for a lesson. What I loved is that I was better at it than James - first only ever sport where I was better.
    Tip: don’t try to change direction in the same way you would in the canoe. I fell off at this point. You actually just paddle wide.

    I’m sure your “everywhere” doesn’t include Guernsey but what a great place for paddle boarding! One of our sons lives there and has a house right beside the beach at Vazon Bay. Each time we visit there the family seem to have added to their fleet of various water craft. Latest additions are inflatable paddle boards even though they have all got their original boards. Their excuse is that they are better for taking on their boat to Herm / Sark! Have to say though that they are really easy to handle - even I can use them except when one or other of the grandchildren decide to do a board to board transfer onto my paddle board when I inevitably end up in the water!
    Just back from another great time with them and I can confirm that the sea is plenty warm enough for falling into from the paddle board even without a wetsuit.
