PaddleBlog - Gillian and her Sunset SUP Experience
Last summer I enjoyed one of Outdoor Concept’s Sunset SUP sessions with a friend who I hadn’t seen for a long time and this turned out to be the perfect way for us to catch up. In the middle of a hectic week of work, a trip out in Ringhaddy Bay on Strangford Lough was the perfect opportunity to relax and unwind.
The trip was well organised and although most of the group had some previous experience of SUPing, Craig provided clear and simple instructions which got everyone up and going very quickly. The location was perfect as we were the only people in the bay, it was so peaceful, giving us the chance to be close to nature and spot herons, starfish and crabs.
For me, SUPing gives me a sense of mindfulness, a wonderful feeling of calm that chases away the daily concerns and stresses, while at the same time giving me a gentle work out. The evening ended perfectly with hot dogs and good chat by the BBQ as the sun went down. This is a trip I will be repeating and would definitely recommend to anyone!
