The kit i use & wear for paddle boarding (sup)

A lot of my guests on my stand up paddle boarding (SUP) courses in Anglesey and Snowdonia in North Wales are keen to know what kit I wear and use when I head off on stand up paddleboarding (SUP) adventures. 

I thought it would be useful to list them here on my blog:
