It was great to get you both out there, all the best for your travels

Always great to have you out on the water with us. Glad you are enjoying SUP. Look forward to seeing you again.
Hi, Generally you would take a 7 year old on your board or I have a big board that I can take up to two children with me. So long as they are ok with being on the water in the dark.... Great experience. Jamie
