There is nothing better than spending quality time together and embracing the great outdoors as a family. Whether it’s dashing along cycle trails in the local woodland or soaking up the fresh air in your favourite park, there are plenty of outdoor activities to try as a family.
That said, if we could choose our ultimate family day out it would HAVE to be spent surrounded by sea, sand and of course SUP.
Inflatable paddle boarding offers boundless opportunities to have fun, learn and develop both in and around the water. Not only is it a great way to get some peace and quiet while exploring the coastline it also a fantastic introductory water sport for kids to try as they begin to build their confidence and knowledge of the ocean.
We all know kids love to learn through play and adventure and owning an inflatable SUP allows youngsters to get involved in every aspect of the experience – from unpacking to pumping to running and jumping till their hearts content, SUP is a sport for all the family to enjoy. As with any water sport, however, it is always essential that you equip yourself with the most reliable and durable equipment that will ensure everyone has a fun and safe day at the beach.
