Boardskillz SUP Instructor Playtime in Northumberland

Sometimes the waves are just too big to teach at the coast so our instructors take the opportunity to go shred themselves. Last weekend was no different with Joe making a couple of days of it up in beautiful Northumberland with SUP pup Ruby in tow.

Bamburgh had proved to be a bit disappointing on the Friday evening with some unhelpful wind and was awash with surf beginners which made for some interesting obstacles to negotiate!

No matter the pubs of Bamburgh certainly help re-hydrate after an exhausting double dip! The night sky was truly spectacular this weekend and wild camping means you get to chill near the castle which is a gob-smacking sight to behold at dawn and dusk.

The wind direction had changed slightly the following day so after a quick stop off at Trotters bakery to refuel we headed for Embleton where there were some barrelling waves as the tide dropped. Joe doesn’t need to be told twice and he was suited up and out back in record time.

Another killer session in empty waves. Why would anyone want to paddle at a busy beach break like Tynemouth? Back to reality with more SUP lessons and windsurfing tuition this coming week but it was nice to get some free time and even better to score some almost perfect paddle surfing conditions.
