The Gower Peninsula, South Wales: A hidden gem for SUP enthusiasts

Dougal’s adventure kicked off in the picturesque Gower Peninsula. Just like the entire South coast of Wales, the Gower is a paradise for outdoor enthusiasts, especially when it comes to stand-up paddleboarding (SUP). With its clear skies and stunning coastal view, it’s practically impossible to stop yourself from grabbing your board and diving right in.
