      River levels are reasonable low at present so had a short training session (paddling up and down few times) on a section of the R.Severn.
      Paddled upstream a mile until the first section of fast flowing water (only Grade 1), a great place for a SUP workout - a bit like an infinity swimming pool session, you have to keep paddling quite hard to remain stationary.
      Always good to keep an eye on river levels here before setting out. Summer time, I often teach beginners here, but after rainfall in Wales, it can quickly become unsuitable. If you are in the UK http://www.paddlepoints.net is an amazing site and links to all River Level monitoring stations.
      Pay and Display Parking but only around £1. Easy access via a public concrete slipway to launch. Oh and the locals don't seem to be familiar with SUP/Surf so you may get some odd looks if you wander around the carpark barefoot wearing nothing but a DryRobe after a session!! :-)

      Really pretty section of canal here, just a few locks to portage along the way.
      I find flat water like this ideal to improve paddle technique, especially when I'm away from the coast - took the surfsup out of habit and because it fits in the back of the 4x4 :)

      Perfect Winter SUP morning on the Gannel. Launched approx. an hour before hightide, paddling upstream past Penpol Creek and the Old BoatYard.
      Paddled up with the incoming tide, turning at slackwater and returning back to the beach.
