SUP with your Pup (dog-friendly stand-up paddle boarding) (Sold Out)
Sun 18 August 2019 | 11:00 am - 1:00 pm£47
Back of Beyond Adventures is organising “SUP with your pup”, a dog-friendly stand-up paddleboarding event, on Sunday 18th August 2019 in Richmond. Taking place from 11am to 1pm.
What to bring
- “For your dog: You will need to bring a PFD (personal floatation device) with a grab handle for your dog, along with the usual paraphernalia that you carry as a dog owner (I find dog treats and poo bags in pretty much all of my pockets these days).
- For you: Most people wear board shorts / swimming shorts, running tights or leggings and a t-shirt. You must have footwear with you that you don’t mind getting wet. Wetsuit shoes are ideal, flip flops can also work (wear them to carry the board into the water and then tuck them under the elastic on the board or clip them to your leash). If it is particularly sunny, it is recommended that you wear sun-cream and a hat. Sunglasses are also good. Be aware that can they sink quickly. We also suggest bringing water in a refillable bottle to stay hydrated during the session.”
“We have long sleeved rash vests for you to wear and provide a PFD (personal floatation device) for each of you humans.”
“You are going to be paddling in beautifully stable stand up paddle boards so it is unlikely that you will end up in the water….although it can happen! We provide PFD’s (personal floatation devices) that will keep you buoyant in the water if you do end up in it. We can then help you back into or onto your canoe, kayak or stand up paddleboard. If you are a weak or non swimmer, please do let your instructor know so that they are aware of it.
You will start the session paddling on your knees before transitioning to standing, so you will need a degree of flexibility to do this.”
