Love paddleboarding and fancy doing an exciting SUP challenge? Join Sian from Psyched Paddleboarding on the 3 Lakes Experience! It involves stand up paddleboarding the three longest lakes in England, Scotland and Wales - Windermere, Loch Awe and Llyn Tegid (Lake Bala).  A fantastic SUP challenge with the combination of travelling over 380 miles on land and 43 miles on water! This truly unique challenge will take you on an adventure to some of the most beautiful and scenic inland paddling locations in the UK. The Three Lakes Experience suits all motivations, whether it is for a personal challenge, charity fundraising, or just for enjoyment.

Sian was the first person to complete the Three Lakes Challenge on a stand up paddleboard and she loves nothing more than guiding people paddleboarding on an adventure and to help you successfully complete this exciting challenge.

Have done a few different trips now with Sian but completed the three lakes challenge with her last weekend, and what an amazing experience! Total professionalism, organised, great accommodation, every detail thought of, great kit, PLUS support and encouragement, absolutely read the group so could see when we were flagging and boost us, when to push us on, when some fun was needed, while quietly in the background keeping our safety absolutely in mind, her mountain leader skills meant she knew exactly where we were at any point, and had a plan should the Weather close in etc, particularly in loch awe which is pretty remote and unpredictable. Warm, totally awe inspiring, committed and SO enthusiastic you will not fail to have a great experience with Sian or any of her lovely team, thanks guys , lots love xxxx
