SUP in a Bag

As soon as we met Amanda our initial fears about Stand Up Paddle boarding - of our lack of skill and fitness - immediately disappeared. Her enthusiasm, confidence and guidance assured us we were in safe hands and in for a good time. We took our SUPs to the waters’ edge and paddled out around Roundwood Quay.

We were all on our feet and chatting away as we navigated the few boats and buoys in the Cowlands Creek. With the sun on our backs and the tide in our favour we thought we were pretty good at Stand Up Paddle boarding! As we gently paddled past the quiet, peaceful and completely beautiful forested riverbanks we saw herons, oyster beds, fish jumping and the occasional rambler waving back at us.

After about cruisy 45 minute paddle, we landed on a small island. With Trelissick Gardens opposite and the stately home of Lord Falmouth up river, we all agreed that this would have been the perfect spot for a pic-nic, (hindsight is a wonderful thing!)

Back on the boards, we suddenly felt the change paddling upstream, but Amanda assured us she had a few tricks up her sleeve for the return journey. We rested to watch the chains pull the King Harry Ferry across then continued paddling on our knees as the current and wind were now against us. Amanda then got us to pull our boards together in a long line, minimizing drag and making it so much easier to paddle.

An excellent 2 hours. A river adventure with a capable and fun guide and a chance to view Cornwall from a totally different perspective.
