EC Stories London: SUP from Bristol to London

On Thursday 9th of February, hear how four Explorers Connect members planned an adventure on their doorstep. 


Paddleboarding the 165 miles from Bristol to London may not be the first thing that comes to mind when you think of an expedition; but the nine-day adventure was far from easy. 

The team, who collectively had about 5 hours of SUP experience prior to taking on the challenge, all met through the Explorers Connect community and clicked because of their love of exploration and adventure. They wanted to prove that anyone can get out there and have an adventure: even a city worker, landscaper, digital artist and cameraman. 

Penny, Neil, Will and Marcus recount the physical and mental journeys that they experienced on their trip, proving that adventure doesn’t need to happen in far-flung, exotic countries. They'll show you how you can find adventure on your doorstep. 

When: doors open 6.30pm, talk begins at 7.30. 

Where: Prince of Wales 150-151 Drury Ln, London WC2B 5TD


£6.60 / £4.40 to EC CLUB members** including booking fees. Tickets are available in advance only.
