    Red Paddle co 2019 boardsJanuary has passed us by in the blink of an eye and I can barely believe we hit February this coming week! It must be time, therefore, to announce the dates for the Spring demo days with Paddlefast in 2019.

  • Pumpkin Adventure to the Narrowboat Farm by SUP

    Boy on paddleboard with red paddle co kiddy paddleOn the last day of our half-term holiday I promised the kids a pumpkin adventure. Not content with your average ‘drive to a pumpkin patch’ scenario, I decided to use this as an opportunity to get the paddleboard out in mid-October.

    The paddling team

    Now admittedly my 6 year old was very enthusiastic of a paddleboarding trip and even better if there was a pumpkin and carving at the end of it! However, my nearly 1 year old is still on the young side for paddleboarding adventuress of more than half an hour. She did not look overly impressed at being bundled into layers and lifejacket but was unfazed on the water which I take as a good sign!

  • Spring has sprung - Paddlefast's Paddleclub dates for 2017

    Now that Spring has officially sprung, the clocks have gone forward and (most) of the snow has melted, it’s time for us to break out the new 2017 demo boards and get Paddlefast's Paddleclub back on the water.

    The What

    Paddleclub is an excuse for folk to get together with like-minded paddlers (mostly Stand Up Paddleboards, but we’re an inclusive bunch J), take advantage of the lighter evenings we have in the summer and go exploring the various waterways around our country. It’s also an opportunity to try out equipment and maybe try your hand at something new. Continue reading
