My Year of Paddling Daily - With Dave Knight

This episode features Dave Knight from @SUP3six5 who is nearing the end of his challenge to paddle daily for 365 days straight, to inspire others to connect with nature and water and boost their mental health.

If you want to get a real taste of his exploits then the best place is on Instagram where you can check out his posts and his entertaining story highlights which have been built up lovingly over the last 350+ days.

In this episode he shares his rebooting strategy and his 'quiver' of methods for managing his own mental health, with the core of this approach being time in, on and under the water.

Completing this project has needed a huge combination of grit, motivation and organisation and a 'day at a time' approach.

Throughout this year he's had the support of his partner Mia, his friends and family and also organisations including O'Shea, O'Neill and Henri Lloyd. Special mentions for his paddle buddy Tim Woodhead, and his frequent wingman Jude...and not forgetting Bow.

He's due for a BIG finish on Saturday 30th October At Wildshore Delamere near Chester, finishing with a night paddle so give him a huge cheer as he crosses the line!
