Best part of having a friend on the river is high quality conversations about everything and absolutely nothing. Take these 60 seconds and multiply it by 4 1/2 hours and you get the idea. Full video on Youtube. Link in my bio.
This is a longer edit of my fall stand up paddle board trip on Five Mile creek. Everyday my commute takes me across Five Mile Creek at least twice. Finally got a chance to see how it floats! About 6 miles in as many hours. Tree jams and low water made for slow going. My ISUP handled the river no problem.
Maitai River Paddle.
Cruise up the river and enjoy a paddle through the city centre. Stop off at the @riverkitchennelson for a coffee ☕️ and then cruise back down the river.
Paddle for all levels. Great family trip. 👨👩👧👦

Here’s a recap of our 3rd day here in Costa Rica. We started the morning with a nature walk in the @chilamaterainforestretreat with a very WELL EDUCATED guide, then we drove up the road and paddled the Puerto Viejo Nature Reserve float where we got to see iguanas and monkeys to all the various local birds.
Now off to the Pacuare for 3 days!! We’ll be zip lining in the rainforest to swinging from the Tarzan Swings! It will be good to take a 3 day social media fast. See you all in a few days! #riversup#costarica#gopro#beahero#optoutside#riverpaddle#sup
Let's start the year as we mean to go on - on the water. We're planning a new year's day paddle at 1pm on the, you've guessed it, 1st January 2020. More details available via the Facebook group link in the comment.
The moon tonight from my phone. In one degree weather, on the side of the road, in 3 feet of snow. Does no justice. It was mesmerizing. Absolutely breathtaking. The LAST full moon of the decade! We spent it well, with besties, in the snow, by a fireplace, margheritas in hand. 😍🙏🏻🥶🥰-
As the old song goes, “there’s nothing better than splashing about on the river” and with record breaking temps today, these visitors to the River Teme certainly have the right idea!
Forecast is still looking great for the weekend ☀️ so if you fancy taking a dip, read our latest spotlight feature & discover the best local spots for wild swimming. And if you’re not ready to get your toes wet, how about a little paddle upstream? 🛶
Despite the wind, we had a really mellow SUP Club last night on the river Chelmer 🏄🏽♂️🏄🏾♀️ 16 of us made c.8k beneath a beautiful sunset, before dinner and drinks at The Six Bells, Boreham 🍺🥗 #supclub#wednesdays#supsect#supfriends
This picture reminds me of an awesome summer had running my own business and working alongside another business @wesup_hq. What an incredible summer we had growing the new stand up paddle and lifestyle centre in Southampton, enjoying the beautiful sunny days, making loads of new friends and paddling some stunning locations. This summer will be much of the same, cannot wait to be spending more time in the sea than on land. If you want to try SUP but a bit apprehensive or not sure what to expect drop me a message and you can join one of our sessions for beginners. I promise you’ll love it. ❤️❤️🤙🏼🤙🏼
Thanks to @cariverquest for catching my oh-shit face as I got spit out this little patch of rapids!
My knees were a little sore the next day from dropping down low when the river got grabby.
Like I said, I could definitely get better at this! But 55 miles is a respectable shake-down 🤷🏻♀️.
Post Edit: Because of some confusion on this post, I feel the need to clarify that I am not in a kayak here (though that would have been a more comfortable choice for this route), but I am on a SUP (Stand-Up Paddle Board), which I am kneeling on while paddling furiously with a ridiculously long paddle (meant for a STANDING person) in a desperate attempt not to fall off my board into icy waters as I surf rapids without any clue as to what I’m doing...
