DOWNWIND in Gran Canaria

Last week we travelled to Gran Canaria to join in a week of paddling, downwinds, beer, wine and good food.

Sean Rice and his fiancé, Emily McGrath, were also in Gran Canaria doing PaddeLife workshops and talks. It was awesome to catch up with them and we went on some epic downwinds. Thanks to Esteban and Sara from Living Sea for arranging all the downwind transport and a ski for me to be able to join in the fun. If you want to go on a paddling holiday with downwinds, warm water and sun then look them up and get yourself there. Las Palmas is the city in Gran Canaria where it all happens, there are skis for hire and downwinds start right at the club in the city on one of their great beaches. Depending on your experience and fitness you can choose how long (or short) you would like to go downwind. We did 30km and 20km runs. The guys then went on a 44km downwind, so really you can do pretty much anything.

Anyway check out my clip below to see how much fun you can have. I will edit and post our inland island tour so you can see its not just all about paddling and a great island to visit.

I hope you enjoy the clip.
