Not so long ago we published the press releases and schedule for the 2019 BSUPA Instructor conference. Well, the bang of the drum continued as SUP instructors & BSUPA members across the country awoke from the salty slumber of winter to come together for the common good of promoting paddleboarding with BSUPA. After all, growing paddle boarding in the UK for our members is the ultimate goal at BSUPA. It’s what we set out to do and as our AGM showed that is what is being achieved.
