Description

Sharing the joy of stand up paddleboarding. Join us for inspiring conversations with dream guests talking about all the health, happiness, friendship, purpose and possibility that SUP brings to our lives. From world endurance record holders to SUP Yoga, SUP with a Pup to SUP Surf, we will hear uplifting stories and fantastic information to help you on your paddleboarding journey. SUP has given our host, Jo Moseley, so much joy, confidence, courage and community since her first lesson in the Lake District in 2016 recovering from a knee injury. She became the first woman to paddle coast to coast across northern England, fundraising and picking up litter, has been in magazines, on the tv, radio and a guest on many podcasts. The film about her journey called Brave Enough - A Journey Home to Joy was launched to critical and audience acclaim in 2021. She has made two short award winning films about paddleboarding and written many articles. Having experienced such happiness and wellbeing, her goal in launching the podcast is to shine a light on the brilliant stories of others in the paddleboarding community and to share valuable ideas with her audience. It is both a thank you letter to everyone who has inspired, welcomed and encouraged her and a love letter to the wonderful sport. At the heart of the podcast is the idea 'We rise by lifting others' and that's what she is here to do - to welcome, encourage and celebrate you in the paddleboarding community.

I am so thrilled to welcome Nicky Green to the podcast today!Nicky is Chief Operating Officer at The 2 Minute Foundation. She is 42 and lives in Croyde, North Devon with her 2 girls, husband Graham and her dog Pixie. In 2019 I fundraised for The 2 Minute Foundation with my C2C SUP adventure from Liverpool to Goole, creating 4 beach clean stations. I am a very proud Ambassador. After graduating with a BA degree in 2000, Nicky travelled to Mexico + New Zealand. She worked in Australia with one job overlooking Sydney Harbour bridge and the blue mountains and loved every minute!On her return, she worked in financial PR, then project management but jumped at the opportunity to join Graham in India for 6 months where she travelled and volunteered for a Women’s empowerment charity. After working in London, the pull back to North Devon and the Atlantic coast was magnetic. At the end of her maternity leave for her firstborn, she started working with Martin Dorey, founder of The 2 Minute Foundation for his writing business 1 day a week. As traction on the 2 minute beach clean hashtag grew, she listened intently into the conversations between Martin and Dolly, the social media manager and wanted ‘in’! Starting out with the bookkeeping, online shop and station sales, she soon picked up more hours to work with corporate relations, new campaigns, recruiting the wider 2 minute team and being instrumental to transition into charity status. She now helps to drive The 2 Minute Foundation forwards with the growing and awe inspiring team and adores working for a charity that aligns with her values. She is 2 Minute through and through, always on the look out for new 2 Minute opportunities and litter (!), continually learning and seeking out new adventures.In addition to the love of SUP, her hobbies include running, Pilates, singing and dipping in the sea!In this episode we also hear how Nicky's Grandfather was enjoying paddleboarding in the 1940s!Nicky talks about:www.facebook.com/2minutecharityshopThe App:‘BEACHCLEAN’You can donate here:https://www.justgiving.com/2minuteFind out about stations from: stations@2minute.org Learn about being a Guardian Angel from claire@2minute.org2 Minute Supporters : Surfdome and FjallravenMartin Dorey's books: http://martindorey.com/ The #s: #2minutebeachclean, #2minutesolution, #2minutestreetclean #2minutelitterpickI hope you enjoy this episode as much as I do!

She took up paddling in 2013 after her friend Guy set up Jurassic Paddle Sports in Sidmouth, Devon.Although Becky was born in Yorkshire and spent her early years living in Hebden Bridge, her family moved to Devon when she was 6 years old and has been a water baby ever since. She started sailing at the age of 7 and spent many weekends playing in the surf on the North Devon coast.As surfing became more competitive on the water, she looked for a sport that was more accessible and paddle boarding was perfect! Last year Becky set up a WhatsApp group for paddle boarders based in the South West of the UK. It’s allowed women to meet up, make friends, share advice and knowledge of SUP and explore new paddle locations with great company!Becky is also taking on a paddle boarding challenge with her friend John, to raise money for cancer research which has impacted her life as with many others over recent years.

I'm so thrilled to introduce Dr. Sarah Perkins to you on The Joy of SUP Podcast!Sarah is a wildlife biologist at Cardiff University whose work focuses on wildlife diseases. She works mostly outdoors, in the field, collecting data on everything from small wild mice to (extremely large) polar bears, but no matter the size of the study animal, she’s always got her eyes on the community that lives on, or in, her study species; the parasites. When not studying disease transfer in wildlife, Sarah is a keen SUP surfer and racer living on the Pembrokeshire coast. In recent years Sarah has combined her love of SUP with that of science, finding that her SUP works well as a floating laboratory for her marine research. Over the last 10 years Sarah has been carrying out research on the health of a small, remote coral reef community in Tobago.The SUP has become an important part of the research equipment used, with it not only being the form of transport to the study sites, but a platform from which to observe the reef and collect samples.  Back in the UK, Sarah is an advocate for wildlife conservation, education and responsible engagement. She can frequently be spotted paddling her SUP while wearing a mask and snorkel; ready to jump off and explore the underwater world.Here is a link to the cleaner fish on Kathryn Ellen Whittey's You Tube that Sarah mentions: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GGysteqPDNY&list=UUhXwpcds97F259nXaPI7KWg&index=8In this episode we talk about the iNaturalist app and how we can all add to the scientific data on wildlife. Sarah talks about seal haul out sites and mentions Cornwall Seal Group Research Trust and Sue Sayer.

I am so thrilled to welcome Gill Ryan to the podcast!Gill lives in a town in Hampshire on the South Coast surrounded by water but this doesn’t mean she grew up as a water baby, in fact the opposite. She tried SUP in the summer of 2019 and instantly fell in love and SUP soon became a big part of her life. There was just one challenge and that was getting over her fear of the water!Being married and a mum of 2, Gill loves nothing more than getting her family out on the water with her, she even got her over 70 year old dad out in a kayak for the first time in decades. Gill tells us all about preparation and patience she uses to take her children on the boards!In 2020 Gill became an Ambassador for three fantastic companies; Bluefin, Stand Clothing and Yak Paddling Adventure Equipment and in recent months has also taken on the role as a Community Guardian for Planet Patrol with her friend Kerry, whom she met via SUP. Being a naturally shy person around people she didn’t know, SUP has boosted Gill’s confidence dramatically. Never would she have imagined meeting up with a group of people she didn’t know and thoroughly enjoying herself. She has made some fantastic friendships.Her new-found confidence has now led her to recording reviews on products. She shares that she still gets tongue tied and it takes several attempts along with a lot of editing but these reviews have proven very popular, especially her YAK Kallista Buoyancy Aid review. She also loves helping small businesses, promoting their clothing/accessory ranges and often gets sent items to promote on her ever growing Instagram @sup_loving_gill account.In summer 2020 Gill organised three local meet ups, where around 20-30 people turned up each night. Going forward her plan is to organise more meet ups, including fancy dress nights and litter picks, organised through the local sup groups on Facebook.Owning a VW campervan gives her the freedom to travel further afield and stay overnight. Gill is currently organising various trips around the UK including Devon, Lake District, Swanage and East Sussex. Gill featured in the 2021 Spring edition of the SUP International Magazine, where she talks about the joy of being able to get back out on the water after restrictions lifted, what motivates her and her kit .Along with SUP, Gill’s other passion is photography, no fancy cameras just her mobile. For her combining the two has been a dream. She loves nothing more than catching a beautiful sunrise or sunset from her board, spotting glorious water reflections and snapping those stunning autumnal shots on the Basingstoke Canal.  I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I do! I'd love to hear your thoughts and do follow Gill.If you have any questions, please get in touch on thejoyofsuppodcast@gmail.com.Instagram is @thejoyofsuppodcast_Follow #thejoyofsuppodcast on Twitter and InstagramFacebook The Joy of SUP PodcastWebsite www.jomoseley.comIt would be fantastic if you could also rate and review us on Apple as it will help more people find our paddleboarding SUP sunshine! Wishing you sunshine and joy, thank you for listening, Jo x Please always put safety first +  get the right advice for your training + body.

I am so thrilled to welcome Emily Hague to The Joy of SUP Podcast today. I discovered Emily on Instagram and was so interested in her work with On The Killer Whale Trail. Emily is a marine biologist, specialising in marine mammals - whales, dolphins and seals. As well as her research, she has a deep care and passion for the sea and all that encompasses it. She is a volunteer lifeboat crew onboard the Anstruther RNLI Lifeboat. She also loves to spend her spare time walking or cycling coastal paths and beach cleaning. She loves getting in the sea itself, whether that’s swimming, kayaking or more recently, paddleboarding! She is based in the beautiful East Neuk of Fife in Scotland, so mostly paddles around the skerries and rocks within the Firth of Forth. She also shares her wonderful paddles on the Shetland Isles. Emily runs On the Killer Whale Trail,  a social media platform dedicated to adventuring whilst looking for wildlife, with special highlights spotting killer whales in Shetland. She also runs the On the Litter Trail beach cleaning campaign, sponsored by Sea Changers. Through community action and team spirit the campaign collected over a tonne of litter in two weeks (including whilst paddleboarding!). Emily loves the freedom and sense of adventure that SUP brings. Whilst it can be fun to enjoy with friends, she finds a solo paddle magical, where you can really take time to enjoy the peace and calm that the ocean can bring. The sea, and all the wonderful creatures that inhabit it, are very close to Emily’s heart  which is why she dedicates all her time to researching it, doing beach cleans, educating and encouraging others to enjoy it too.In this episode we also talk about:Being a member of RNLI Anstruther crewHow her Mum encouraged her love of orcas by telling her they were in the reservoirs of the Peak District!The devastating impact of plastic on wildlife in the oceanThe joy of community looking for orcasHer Bluefin 10 ft 8 paddleboardHer Batoko orca swimsuit You can find Emily:Instagram at @emilylhague and @onthekillerwhaletrail Twitter @emilyhague and @OntheKWTrail  Facebook On the Killer Whale TrailWebsite On The Killer Whale Trail You may also enjoy Hugh Harrop who photographs on Shetland Isles!I hope you enjoy this episode as much as I did recording it.!

I am so  thrilled to share Sarah Thornely with you on The Joy of SUP Podcast. She is one of the most inspiring, knowledgeable and kind women in the paddleboarding community and I am sure you will love her story.Having had no previous sporting history, she learned to SUP in 2012 when she was 53. After  a serious life-threatening operation she realised it was time to get on with paddling!  She raced for five years, culminating in jointly winning the National Series UK Title in the 14' class in 2017.  She promptly retired and offered to volunteer to help the GBSUP National Series on their events team with practical info for each race location and photography.  She became part of the Live Feed of the first race which grew to also interviewing paddlers and all those involved in the race scene.  Supjunkie was "born" and she and her husband are now the media arm for GBSUP. They have also been involved in some  big SUP races:  UKN1SCO races, the APP World Tour and went to China with the GB SUP Team who were competing in the World SUP Championships in 2018.   They do this for the love of SUP and it has kept Sarah connected with all the paddlers she used to race with. They love to SUPport those who SUPport others.  Find Sarah online:FB:  Sarah Elizabeth Thornely and SUPjunkieInsta: @sarah_supjunkie_thornely and @supjunkie.ukTwitter: @supjunkie_ukYouTube: Supjunkie paddleboardingWebsite: www.supjunkie.co.ukGBSUP:  www.gbsup.co.uk FB: GBSUP National SeriesInsta: @gbsupTwitter: @GBSUPOne design race series, where everybody races on the same board + a great intro to racing:FB: UKN1SCOInsta: @ukn1scoWebsite: www.n1sco.co.ukSarah writes for Stand Up Paddle Mag UK and The Paddler and would encourage others to get in touch with them (or her) if they want to share a story:FB: Stand Up Paddle Mag UK and The PaddlerInsta: @supmaguk and @thepaddlerTwitter: @SUPMagUKSarah is an Ambassador for Water Skills AcademyFB:  Water Skills AcademyInsta: @waterskillsacademyTwitter: @water_skillsShe is an Ambassador for Paddle LoggerFB: Paddle LoggerInsta: @paddlelogger Twitter: @paddlelogger Thank you for listening!

Having read her book Ignore The Fear and met her at the Wildbase film evening, I was so excited to finally speak to her about her world record triathlon and the lessons she could share. Fiona is a keynote speaker, endurance adventurer and entrepreneur. She became the first woman to complete a length of Britain triathlon in 2018 when she stand up paddleboarded from Lands End to John O'Groats, having already walked and cycled the route.  Taking on her fear of the sea, as well as the demanding logistics of sourcing a boat, crew and funding, she showed what you can achieve when you dare to start before you’re ready and rethink what’s possible.She faced her fear and lost sight of shore to become the first woman to SUP across the Irish Sea.  At the same time she became the first person to SUP the length of Britain on an inflatable board, picking up a hat-trick of world records during this expedition. When not adventuring Fiona runs Adventure Book Club, sharing stories of adventure and helping others to get outside, as well as running the Action Collective, a 3 month coaching programme for entrepreneurs.

I am so thrilled to welcome Natasha Lovegrove onto The Joy of SUP Podcast.  Natasha is the founder of The Kind Store and I discovered her on Instagram when I was looking for a great plastic free shampoo + conditioner. She recommended Kind 2 (which I now use) and I realised she was a paddleboarder! She is also a big fan of hugging trees which is something I love doing too! Natasha discovered paddleboarding by chance in Slovakia in 2015. She has always loved board sports, including high adrenaline wakeboarding and snowboarding. She thought SUP was just something she could do on holiday, but was reintroduced to the sport through her interest in plastic pollution and the work of Lizzie Carr and On Planet Patrol paddleboarding litter picks. She realised it was a wonderful way to marry her two interests - board sports and caring for the planet. Based in Essex, Natasha created The Kind Store over 2 years ago as she struggled to find products that met all of her principles and thought there must be more people like her wanting to reduce their single use plastic consumption. She's been vegetarian, now vegan, for nearly seven years and this is what kick-started her journey into sustainability.She also has a successful career as a Chartered Building Surveyor and runs The Kind Store at night. She and her husband married in summer 2020 in Cornwall. Like many of us, SUP offers Natasha the chance to escape the demands of a busy working life and gives her a space, place and time to unwind and relax.  I am keen to show all the possibilities of SUP on the podcast and share the important role it can have on our physical and mental wellbeing. I think many of us will relate to Natasha's story. Topics we also cover:The Chelmer and Blackwater Navigation requires an extra license in addition to the Waterways License available from British Canoeing. Always check the waterways to know where you are allowed. Stopping to reflect and celebrate how far we have come either in business or our paddleboarding journey. Natasha didn't grow up as a 'water baby' but found water sports a little later in life. We all find our way to SUP on different paths. You can find Natasha on Instagram @thekindstoreuk  + The Kind Store.  Photo credit Natasha Lovegrove.Thank you for listening!

I am thrilled to welcome Camilla Todd to The Joy of SUP Podcast. I met Cami on Instagram and loved her energy and passion for wellbeing of people and the planet. I was really keen to find out more about SUP & Soul, her wellness and water retreats. In this episode Cami talks about making a big decision at a turning point in her life to become a SUP instructor, following a difficult few years. It is really inspiring to hear how she took that leap of faith to back her herself and how the support of life coaching and her partner helped her see the opportunities before her and go for them. She really helped me understand the value of life coaching and why she is now combining it on her wellness and water retreats. Cami discovered the power of SUP in 2015 on a trip to Canada - a story I think you will love although a little hair raising!She was immediately in love with the sport. In 2019 she trained as an ASI SUP Instructor in Portugal and officially launched SUP & Soul in 2020. Here is her vision for it:“My vision is to create SUP experiences and retreats that combine the power of paddleboarding, nature and blue space with mindful practices to help enable people to care for themselves, each other and our planet. I strongly believe in the benefits of self care, compassion and finding calm in this chaotic world. I believe we can find this through reconnecting with nature and in turn we can use this connection to become nature ambassadors who will move mountains to protect what we love. That’s the purpose behind SUP & Soul.”In this episode we talk about:The power of life coachingFollowing your dreams and backing yourself Feeling the fear and doing it anywayThe kindness of strangers in encouraging us to believe in ourselvesBuilding self confidenceBecoming a SUP instructor with ASI and what that entailsSUP in CanadaBlue health and blue mindHow paddleboarding allows you to see a different perspective on life + your thoughtsWater and wellness retreatsPivoting your paddleboarding business in a pandemicRediscovering the joy of play as we get olderUsing an anchor to enjoy a quiet moment on the waterBeing kind to yourself and body confidenceYou can find out more about Cami at:www.supandsoul.co.uk https://www.facebook.com/supandsouluk https://www.instagram.com/supandsouluk/Cami talks about using an anchor on her paddleboard.

I'm thrilled to welcome Dr Adya Misra to The Joy of SUP Podcast. I discovered Adya on Twitter and love her passion for coaching other women in SUP + kayaking as well as her commitment to the environment. I also admire how she made a decision to change her research career so that she could incorporate SUP + coaching into her life. There are so many valuable lessons within Adya's story I am honoured to share it.Adya discovered the joy of being out on the water when she moved to Stockholm, Sweden and discovered kayaking in 2014. Being inside a research lab 24x7 left little free time to enjoy her new hobby, so a few years later she decided to change careers and get her weekends back. After kayaking for several years, and craving a challenge while living in a new city, Adya tried paddleboarding in 2019  in Ireland and a few months later bought her own board.She is a flat water kayak coach and loves leading small groups of paddlers at her local canoe club near Liverpool. In the soundbite clip she also shares her joy of paddling in the Liverpool Albert Docks.  Adya also blogs about her adventures at Gone Paddling, hoping to inspire other women with full time jobs to try paddlesports while incorporating safety advice for everyone. She is also a British Canoeing #shepaddles Club Champion hoping to improve representation of women at her local canoe club not just as members but in more leadership roles. We cover some really interesting topics around women in paddlesports from both a coaching and participation perspective. I found this really fascinating, in particular around technique and using our bodies in a more effective way. With her paddling, blogging and #shepaddles work, Adya hopes to improve gender, ethnic and neuro-diversity in the paddlesports community.Right at the end of the podcast, Adya also shares her brilliant news with us having recently become a On Planet Patrol Community Guardian. You can follow Adya on Twitter @DrAdyaMisra   You can follow her on Instagram @queenadya Read her fabulous blog Gone Paddling.Links here to find out more about British Canoeing and the #ShePaddles campaign and #ShePaddles Club Champions.Read more about On Planet Patrol.Adya talks about paddleboarding in the Albert Docks in Liverpool.

I'm thrilled to welcome Michelle Ellison to the podcast today. I first met Michelle in 2018 when we paddleboarded on the Thames with Active 360 and then went to Adventure Uncovered Live. Michelle Ellison has been an adventurer, author, speaker, film producer and podcast club host since connecting with her love of the outdoors back in 2015. She has since paddle boarded the length of the River Thames for citizen science, the longest fjord in Norway, the English Channel, and more recently the width of England for mental health. Describing herself as a non-runner, cyclist and mountaineer, she took on cycling the length of the UK, running the width of the UK for mental health and suicide, and climbing the highest point in every European country. A kiwi at heart, her mantra of ‘make sh*t happen’ pushes her to create new experiences for herself and others, believing in the power of connection and getting out of your comfort zone. When she’s not in the outdoors you’ll find Michelle scheming her latest adventure, spending hours talking to her friends and family on the phone (Covid-times), binging on Netflix and tending to her career in HR. In this episode, Michelle tells us about her exciting new venture bringing the Kula Cloth, which sounds fabulous and could make a great difference to women in the outdoors!To get more information on Michelle’s projects and how you can buy your own environmentally friendly, technical antimicrobial pee cloth for your next adventure, visit www.shellsellison.com or @shells_ellison on Instagram.If you have any questions please get in touch!

I'm thrilled to welcome Cadi Lambert to the podcast. Cadi has been hugely instrumental in my own SUP journey over the last 2 years. I was honoured to work with her during my year as a #ShePaddles Ambassador.  I'm grateful I can thank her publicly on the podcast. This episode was recorded in December 2020 when Cadi was running the #ShePaddles programme at British Canoeing.This is a programme to encourage more women + girls into paddlesports and  develop their leadership + coaching roles.#ShePaddles has a number of elements: a) The 10 Women's Paddlesports Ambassadors who share a love of paddling across their social media and blogging. b) A Sport England funded programme to develop a 100 women and girls as coaches and leaders across the country in clubs. c) the Women's Paddling Community, a 2500 strong community on Facebook where women can support each other, make new friends and build their confidence. In this episode, we talk about: how the #ShePaddles programme helped increase the numbers of women joining British Canoeing since its beginning 5 years ago when the figure was 27% female membership. In 2020 40% of the new members joining British Canoeing were women. why it is important to join BC for your Waterways License - allowing  access to 4500 kms of waterways, providing insurance + supporting campaigns such as Clear Access Clear Waters environmental work. the Paddles Up Training Opportunities and Go Paddling website + resources available at British Canoeing. On a personal level, Cadi is happiest when out running the trails with her dog Brew Dog, or wild swimming in a cold lake with friends. Nature has been a huge influence in her life and helped her through the death of a partner to suicide and the loss of her Mum to cancer last year. Her desire to chase positivity and help others find theirs has led her to qualifying as a Life Coach and she plans to use the outdoors, alongside coaching to create positive change in people's lives now she has left British Canoeing. Cadi first tried SUP many years ago but thought it was only something to be done at the beach. She now loves to head out with friends for a SUP on the local rivers and canals. She hopes to live by the sea one day!You can find Cadi at: An Adventurous Girl and  ShineLifeCoach.
