This abstract is from recent research commissioned by British Canoeing into the effects of off-shore winds on Stand-Up Paddleboarders.
British Canoeing’s current guidance is for Stand-Up Paddleboarders to avoid off-shore winds.
This study was aimed to provide informed guidance to SUP users, British Canoeing Awarding Body Coaches and Leaders on the effects of offshore winds on SUP paddlers, and
to make recommendations on the possible course of action to take should a SUP paddler
find themselves being blown offshore.
