Trying out the SUP-YAK at Harbour Cove in Cornwall

Earlier this year we decided to make an investment in some paddleboards. We’d seen their increased use this year whilst in Cornwall and Devon on holidays and weekends away, and we were intrigued! The thing was, whilst I really wanted to try paddleboarding, my husband wasn’t sure whether a kayak would be better as he likes to kayak.

Much to our surprise, when we visited a surf shop in Cornwall, they had the perfect solution – the SUP-YAK!

This amazing board is a stand-up paddleboard that can be converted into a kayak with a seat attachment! Amazing!

We were sold and with our pending move to Cornwall at the time, we couldn’t resist. They also only had two left in stock and their paddleboards were selling fast, with their rise in popularity, so we just had to have them.

Moving to Cornwall, we knew we’d use them loads and with a lifespan of at least ten years, they seemed the perfect introduction to both paddleboarding and kayaking on the sea for me.

Read on to see how I got on with my first SUP-YAK outing at beautiful Harbour Cove in Cornwall.

Circus Funtasia Review

Wow wow wow!  Get ready as in this blog post I will share my Circus Funtasia review with you.

If you follow me on Instagram then you’ll have just seen my collection of videos from today’s incredible Circus Funtasia performers and you’ll be excited to find out more about this circus in this blog review.

We were kindly offered a Circus Funtasia family ticket and we couldn’t have planned it better with the date we were able to attend being Father’s Day.  Ben was originally meant to work, but it was predicted to be a rainy weekend so he had to cancel the outdoor job he had planned.

It all worked out perfectly and we were able to spend Father’s Day together as a family with an exciting trip to the circus.

Get ready for my honest opinion of Circus Funtasia 2019 and a stack of photos! Continue reading “Circus Funtasia Review”
