Winter outdoor adventure equipment SUP kit checklist.

Winter outdoor adventure ready we always are here at McConks. Any reader of the McConks blog will most likely be aware of our fondness for paddle boarding in all weather. Just because the seasons change doesn’t mean you have to stop swinging a paddle. And this applies to all areas of paddle boarding. Winter can be an amazing time if you time it right. And adventure paddling is possibly one of the easiest areas to access – with the right outdoor adventure equipment.

What’s winter outdoor adventure paddle boarding?

Outdoor adventure paddle boarding can be anything you choose. From heading off on day long sojourns to overnight camping. It can be done in your own paddling backyard (there’s plenty to discover on your doorstep) or you may decide to head off further afield.

In all cases, you’ll need a few essentials to take along with you. Note: don’t underestimate the need to carry a spare paddle, additional floatation devices and a repair kit. As well as adhering to SUP safety.
