Fun in the Sun at Swanwick SUP Open Day!
Swanwick Marina provided the perfect excuse to get out on the water and enjoy the River Hamble with a stand up paddleboard (SUP) Open Day held on Sunday 28th July. There is now an onsite SUP Store at Swanwick Marina and this event was used to showcase the benefits of this relaxing leisure pursuit. Guests were treated to some beautiful weather and were able to take part in a taster session, paddleboard yoga or on a gentle paddle safari upriver taking in the beautiful River Hamble and its views.
The well attended event had a qualified instructor leading the taster session on a short trip up the River Hamble, teaching attendees the basics of paddleboarding and general safety on the water. He later led the paddleboard social safari alongside a support team from The SUP Company on a relaxed paddle as far up the river as Hamble Country Park. Key to the day was explaining to attendees how to SUP safely and how to use your board when navigating on the river.
The paddleboard yoga group was led by a yoga expert who demonstrated and led the team through a beginner to intermediate paddleboard yoga class, perfect for revitalising your yoga routine and immersing yourself in the natural beauty of the River Hamble. Many attendees on the day expressed their interest in further sessions with some enquiring about the Premier SUP Store and the availability of boards from The SUP Company.
