The Joy of SUP Podcast
'We rise by lifting others' Jo Moseley - The Joy of SUP Podcast
I am proud and honoured to have been invited on to the Joy of SUP podcast to chat with Jo. Here's a little bit about me and the link to the Podcast!
My love of the outdoors grew with me from a young age when we would go for hikes for my little legs, through woodland, farmland, fields, or by the lakes and rivers. If we weren’t walking, we were cycling miles along dirt tracks in the Hertfordshire villages or playing outside. I can't tell you how much I dislike being inside! ‘Outside is the best side’ and where I feel that sparkle, that warm feeling. 18 years ago, I moved to Bedford, a short walk away from the river and the country park and knew instantly that being closer to nature felt better, years went by where I enjoyed these blue and green spaces by myself and with
friends and family. Returning from holiday several years ago, I had a SUP taster session on my local river, the River Great Ouse and I was hooked! After spending as much time as I could on the water and attending different SUP courses and clinics, I decided to go for my SUP Instructor Qualification with ASI and now… Heron and Hush is heading into it’s third year! There’s nothing I love more than seeing those smiles at the end of a session and the incredible effect being on the water has on everyone, from the soothing and calming moments where we connect with nature to the fun and frolics we have.
Heron and Hush has grown so much, through some tough times! I think we provide something for everyone, new experiences, edging out of your comfort zone with that support and knowledge on hand.. I want to make SUP accessible for everyone in a way that they enjoy and have the most fun!
