what are the British legal requirements for PFD. In north America they are required on board a SUP not necessarily worn. However if you do not wear them then you need other Kit on board.

Great format guys. Almost a ‘3 men in a pub’ discussion. Looking forward to the iSUP mega test, sounds interesting. I think the PFD debate is a good one, and definitely think PDF or leash is a must.

Hey Paul. Thanks for taking the time to get back to us with some really good feedback. This is something that I will share with the Team and look at bring into our video into the future.

This year has been a hard year for many sports, stock wise but I hope shops will have more demo gear available soon.
We have always had a dream of having a massive demo centre for SUPs for readers to try and give feedback of gear too. Thats one of the big goals for us.
Thanks again happy SUPing, Reuben
