St Johns on a SUP

Written by stevenba. Posted in Leisure, Stand Up Paddle Board, SUP

Have been doing some exploring on the paddle boards recently with the boys. These pics were taken from a trip up to the top of St Johns Lake to the ford back in August, setting off an hour before high tide. As I wanted to do it on a spring tide, this meant an early (6.30am) start.

Its about 45 mins easy paddle from launch spot to the ford at St Johns.

Leaving behind the rain of England to catch the Plymouth to Roscoff ferry was followed by some difficult driving conditions with heavy traffic and difficult weather for several hours of the 550 mile drive South to the sun and surf blessed Landes region of South West France.

The first stop was Mimizan Plage where we greeted by temperatures in the high 20s and chest high surf. After a quick surf and play in the shore break with the kids, went to Bar Le Surf for some late lunch, a place I have been frequenting since 1992!

Stunning day down Mazza on the SUP. No waves, but super warm and super clear water. All you need is a SUP board and a waterproof camera for days like these, Managed to paddle around St Michaels Mount at high tide and shot some underwater video.
