The Adventure Begins - Part 10 Planning a Coastal SUP Journey

The Adventure Begins

Inform the nominated shore based person that you are setting off. (Remember to tell them when you return)

Remind yourself and the group of the route, any hazards, features and timing considerations.

Remember to actually take your dry bag. I have only left mine on the beach once (OK twice).

Along the journey continually refer to your map and route plan, time yourself, tick off the features and continue to read the sea state and conditions.

With luck the ducks will have aligned and you will be out enjoying your Coastal Experience, smiling gratuitously, proud that all that great planning has delivered you a memorable adventure and feeling lucky that there are many more to plan.
