  • Prone – Carnoustie, Scotland
    A new location with a new guide – Danny from Outdoor Explore. I needed to get some more sea work done, so we hit the coast today. The plan had been to do 15km – 7.5k along the coast and then turn around. With blue sky and the sun shining, things looked good. However, at 3k, Danny spotted a Haar off in the distance, and by […]
  • Prone – Loch Tummel, Scotland
    What a difference a board can make! Setting off from the Loch Tummel Sailing Club on the south shore, I headed east down the loch with a good wind behind me. As I passed Tarzan’s Lodge, and the loch opened up, the water became much more lumpy, and continued this way for the next 3-4km, until reaching Camp Island. From […]
  • Prone – Lochwinnoch Loop, Scotland
    Thanks so much to Clyde Windsurfing and SUP Club for letting me join in their 5km SUP race. Not only did they let me join in, but the organisers also talked me through the route, before then taking me out in the safety boat before the race and taking me around the route, describing each bend, what to watch out for, […]
  • Prone – Loch Awe, Scotland (Day 2)
    On Day 2, we set off from our base at the Torran Bay Hostel and headed north, for an 11km round trip. To mix things up, we played a game of Hare and Hounds, setting one paddler, the “hare”, off with a head start, and then the other 2 paddlers, the “hounds”, to hunt the hare down. To make it even more fun, the return trip […]
  • Prone – Loch Awe, Scotland (Day 1)
    For a change of scenery, and conditions, we decided to take the Blairgowrie Prone Team, (Lindsay, Piotr, and me), over to my favourite loch for some training. On Day 1 we put in at Kilchurn Castle and did a round trip of 9km, heading south to the lumpy crossing, before turning around and heading back. We all had a go on […]
  • Prone – Moray Firth Sea Kayak Challenge
    And it certainly was a challenge! The course would be an 18km paddle from the beach next to Nairn sailing club, finishing at the bay at Findhorn. There would be 2 starts. The first was for the touring kayaks, SUPs, and proneboards, and an hour or so later, the second group would start, consisting of surf skis and […]
