Massive thanks to Susan and her team from @gopaddle.ie for a fantastic outing for Ferrycarrig Rowing Club yesterday.

We split into 2 groups and done a 2 hour scenic tour of the Slaney and Boro rivers.

Everyone had a great time and really enjoyed the tour in a safe and relaxed atmosphere.

I would say that it's worth every second of your time, and if you didn't want to try it then I guess you're one of those people that don't like FUN because you're guaranteed to have a blast.

The GoPaddle Academy is a real community of paddlers with awesome support from Sue and all the instructors. Always willing to help with skills and done with amazing patience 😊
Actually the paddling community that I have met in the South East are all amazing, warm, friendly, welcoming, encouraging, pretty awesome 😊

If I were to recommend the kayak academy to a friend I’d just be honest and tell them how brilliant it is. The enthusiasm, dedication, and friendliness of everyone in the academy, and the sport as a whole is something very unique and not seen in many other sporting communities. It truly is an honour to be a part of such a great sporting community.

It has changed my life and way of looking at life! Kayaking!

Its active, it’s lazy, it’s calm, it’s busy, it’s surfing, it’s swimming, it’s visiting caves, it’s isolation, it’s social, it’s group fun, it’s quiet, it’s loud, it’s laughing until you cry, it is facing your fears, it’s travelling, it’s sightseeing, it’s warm , it’s freezing, it’s a new perspective.

IT’S AN ADVENTURE!
