Blue, grey, blue – sightless SUPing in Mallorca

By Dean Dunbar, – July, 2016.

When I first told SUPM’s editor that I was heading off to Mallorca with my SUP, he said this could make an interesting travel piece. I told him that if I couldn’t find a sighted guide to paddle with, the article would read:
“Launched my SUP from the jetty, paddled out to the edge of the bay, turned around and paddled back. Repeat 25 times.”
I told him without a sighted guide, that is likely to be all I would be doing. Tez told me that maybe an article on how different my SUPing is to many others may make a good article instead. So, here goes.
