It's important to remember that paddleboarding is a weather dependent activity. If it is too windy on the day you would like to rent the board, we reserve the right to refuse rental. Generally, an onshore wind no stronger than 12 knots, or an offshore wind no stronger than 10 knots is suitable.
Paddleboards are different to kayaks in that they are not suitable for straying too far from the beach, especially if you are new to the sport. We ask our customers to remain within sensible distance from the beach at all times, and to be aware that the weather can change very quickly. A calm, windless day can quickly become a gusty, windy day, and a person standing on a board acts as a sail, and can easily be blown quite a distance, quite quickly.
Perfect SUP Weather
Calm, sunny days are perfect paddleboarding weather, but please remember that conditions can change quickly. Check the forecast before you head out (you can always cross-check different forecasts on different websites), and don't forget your suncream - the rays of the sun bounce off the water and can cause sunburn in strange places - sore chin, anyone?!
Terrible SUP Weather
If there are waves of any sort, we strongly recommend that you leave the paddleboarding for another day. We are a very remote island, and although we have a local coastguard team, they can only operate close to the shore. Your safety is the most important thing. If you are at all unsure of whether or not to venture out, please feel free to contact Jen, who will be happy to advise.
