      Again another amazing paddling site in the sensational South West of Western Australia. I read today 'any paddling time is good time' and I have to agree beautiful conditions no wind and the magnificent Margaret River. So quiet, so peaceful and a real grounding experience.

      Pretty good couple of sessions at Lake Middleton. The cool thing being the campsite is right by the lake so you can go paddling anytime =) Did the round the lake tour a couple of times, which only takes around 20min. First day I helped a man who lost his glasses in the water search for them (we didn't find them but someone else did =D) and another time a boy broke his bike on the other side of the lake so went to investigate (and was prepared to give him and the bike a ride back =D he was happy to push the bike in the end!). So much action for such a small lake! Quite busy at first but the average weather and end of the holiday meant that the lake got a lot quieter which was awesome. Traded some paddle lessons for 2 little girls in exchange for a water-ski session with a family that comes up here every summer. Girls loved it!!! Future contributors to SUP Trotters for sure =) Still a few motor boats/jetskis out though. Lots of birds around - the northern end of the lake is closed to boats for the southern crested grebe that nest on the swimming rope there =) - and heaps of baby ducks. The latest being big fans of my board =) Didn't get the chance to paddle Lake Ohau as it was very windy the whole time sadly.

      Pounawea - New Zealand
      Added on Tue, 09 Jan 2018 05:48:07 +0000

      A neat little spot in a pretty amazing area really. Very tidal dependant especially up river at the Catlins Lake and down at the estuary. Plenty of access points either along the river or park down by the campsite at Pounawea. Great spot for bird watching too. At high tide the Lake would be good for paddling. Winds can be really strong and I would be wary of the currents especially when the tide is getting out so might not be ideal for beginners. BYO gear only as there is no rental place around (that I am aware of). The Catlins is an amazing region at the southern tip of the South Island and while it is a popular surf destination (Purakaunui, Tautuku, Curio Bay) it is also great for SUPaddlers as well with plenty of river spots. The Tahakopa estuary at Papatowai would be amazing at high tide. Possible paddles on the Tahakopa & McLennan rivers out of Papatowai as well though it is not necessarily easy to park/launch around. The marine life is insane with seals, sea lions, Hector's dolphins calling the place home and occasionally orcas/whales passing through the waters so keep your eyes peeled in the surf! It is quite a remote area so BYO gear is strongly recommended (I'm not even sure you can hire SUP boards down there).

      Finally found a spot to paddle after a couple of days scouting the area =) It was pretty windy especially around the bend and the tide wasn't in yet so couldn't go into the estuary. Nice wee spot though and with the Catlins Lake further up it definitely calls for more exploration =) Lots of wildlife around the estuary, mostly birds but with herons, oystercatchers, stilts and even royal spoonbills it is a pretty amazing place to go for a walk/bird watching!

      Another glorious day in the South West of Western Australia, namely Cowaramup bay. Great paddle first thing in the morning I'm sooo lucky.
