Guys, I bought an SUP and a life jacket. I'm a beginner and have not tried SUP ever but it looks fun. I also already watched heaps of youtube videos on SUP basics.
where can I practice safely? I'm located in western sydney.
Can you get to the rowing center in Penrith? Any lakes near you?
Yes, i can get to the rowing center. Is that allowed there?
If you are already confident in water then you are ok to practice on your own in safe places such as lakes, rivers as long as the weather is good, no currents and not windy.
If you are not a strong swimmer then best to join a group where others can assist you if needed.
As for specific areas I'm not sure, but I think the Nepean river could be an option.
Good luck and have fun!
I'm a non-swimmer hence the life vest pfd 100. Will have a go at nepean river this weekend.
