Today marked the start of my SUP (stand up paddle board) training. I am aiming to do a 15km open water paddle around the 3 islands just of the coast from Massaguaçu before I return to the UK in a month’s time.
Today I started with a 4km trip from Massaguaçu to Ilhote da Cocanha. The sea was like glass on the way out, but then the wind came up for the return paddle and it got a bit choppy. But all good practice.
Next trip is to take on the 5km loop of the island. I’ve then set myself 7.5km and 10km courses in the run up to the big 15km in a few weeks time. Gonna have arms of steel by the time I get back.
