This summer, two students (one filmmaker and one mathematical biologist) from the University of the West of England took off to the Maldives equipped with Two Bare Feet dive gear to help them capture scenes for an upcoming documentary. And having just returned from their trip, we thought we’d share a few little insights from the white sand beaches and tropical, crystal clear waters of the Indian Ocean archipelago.
The final instalment of a four part series of paddleboarding Vlogs for Two Bare Feet. In this final episode, Nicole and Robb are joined by Kim for a healthy picnic, an impromptu iSUP race, and one last big splash!
Relaxing on the calm waters with a small fishing rod in hand sounds idyllic, hence the rise in paddleboard fishing. As a growing trend, many people are now realising the full benefits of fishing on a stand-up paddleboard (SUP).
Anyone who’s ventured into the UK’s chilly waters in just a swimming costume understands the benefits of a wetsuit. Guaranteed to keep you warm no matter what the elements throw at you, it’s easy to argue that a high-quality wetsuit is essential kit.
The third instalment of a four-part video blog for Two Bare Feet. In this episode Nicole and Robb experience what it's like to enjoy their new iSUP boards on the relaxing waters of Ardingly Reservoir.
Stunt scooters are a great ally in the skate park. Compared to a traditional style scooter, stunt scooters are a heavier and stronger ride. They are not generally foldable or adjustable, which translates into additional durability – just what you need for ambitious tricks, spectacular stunts and riding large ramps.
The second instalment of a four-part paddleboarding video blog for Two Bare Feet. In this episode we rejoin Nicole and Robb, as they hike through the woodland surrounding Ardingly Reservoir to reach the place where they will set up and launch their inflatable SUPs.
One of the most compelling things about paddleboarding as a pursuit is that it can be something totally different to each individual or occasion. It can be what you want it to be, whether that’s a competitive undertaking, a way to exercise and get fit, a means to explore new places or simply just a way of finding solitude and a state of relaxation.
And for a certain man, an Instagram adventurer who goes only by Mystery Explorer, who partakes in many intense past times that require great focus and discipline, paddleboarding leans towards the latter…
Don’t allow your height or weight put you off stand-up paddleboarding. Whilst a standard board may not support taller or heavier riders adequately in the water, the huge range of large volume stand-up paddleboards (SUPs) on the market are ideal for heavier riders.
Generally, smaller and lighter riders will use thinner boards, whilst heavy riders will need a thicker board with increased width for additional stability.
