Year 12 Outdoor Education Paddleboarding

Guy Sutherland —

The Year 12 Outdoor Education students spent Term 1 planning and preparing for a 3 day paddleboarding trip. We ended up having a mix of plans based on the weather.

The students all worked well as a group to adjust plans based on the weather forecasts. This meant we managed to paddleboard in three different environments. 

The students paddled downwind on Lake Aviemore, did a round trip on Lake Benmore from the dam to Junction Island and return, and finally some awesome Paddleboard surfing at Waikouaiti River Mouth whilst dolphins cruised amongst us.
