Today in Group C, we had a splendid time travelling down to the East Dock in Llanelli to learn how to Paddle Board. Paddle Boarding takes a lot of practice to master, however we were very successful for beginners. We raced, completed challenges (which included laying down and jumping up to do a star jump) but we had to master the basics first. We learned how to use the paddles to start off with, and then we went on to more complicated drills. These included standing and kneeling on the back (we found this helped with turning) and the front (which is used for travelling in a straight line. The worst bit was on the way back because some people didn’t help and fell asleep on the bus. However everyone had fun and fell in the water plenty of times, even Mr Smallbones!
