Winter is a very quiet time on the water for our lessons here in Merimbula. This give us plenty of time to step away and enjoy some snow boarding! We had a great week last week with the kids at Mount Selwyn.
We have had some crazy weather here in Merimbula this year. Yes the water is chilly but the sun has been shining and as long as you stay on your feet and high and dry, it has been spectacular on the water! Spring is knocking on the door now so fingers crossed the weather will stay perfect for another long, happy SUP season. Check the winter pics below.
This morning Merimbula was blanketed in a very eerie sea mist / fog during our SUP lesson / tour. It made the whole experience even more magical than usual. The dull light of the morning combined with absolutely no wind and super clear conditions made the water almost glow underneath our stand up paddle boards. It really was a magical experience.
Christopher joined me on the water this morning and really settled in well to the SUP experience. Chris was very keen to learn as much as he could so I showed him a few extra special technique tips and he took to them like a duck to water! Toward the end of the session I took a few sneaky pics of him in action and as you can see in the pic below, he was looking really good buy the end of the session.
This summer has just been absolutely perfect so far in Merimbula. The Christmas, New Year period was just amazing with most days providing all day light winds. Light winds are what is required for great SUP sessions so this has certainly been the SUP season to remember!
Early mornings on the Merimbula Lake are just picture perfect. Check out the image below! To get the most out of your stand up paddle experience you need to hit the water nice and early. Don't hit the snooze button, get out of bed and get on the water! The old saying, the early bird catches the worm definitely applies to stand up paddle.
I hit the water this morning before sunrise to do a bit of fitness training. The conditions were immaculate with not a ripple on the water. There was about a 2m high mist across the surface of the water at Top Lake and I was joined by a couple of very friendly dolphins!

Spring really is an amazing time in Merimbula! This morning the sun was shining on the crystal clear waters of the lake which created spectacular under water viewing. The beams of sunlight streaming under the bridge allowed me to take the great shot which shows how clear the water is at the moment. The really great news is the water is slowly but surely warming up! Here it comes! Another summer of stand up paddle perfection in Merimbula.
