Although the end of the summer is looming, SUP can still be enjoyed in the autumnal months (you may want a wet suit though), so there is no excuse to not try it out.

This week we were lucky enough to be able to join The Original Tour in London, exploring the city on the classic London transport. We got to see all the classic landmarks on this beautiful sunny day on the open top red bus!
