Jennifer became an ASI instructor when she moved back home to Northern Ireland. She loved the thought of sharing this new water sport at home where she has easy access to beautiful beaches.
“I love the sea but forgot about it living and working in big cities. When I was in New York I spent 5 summers in Montauk and got back into sea swimming, surfing and Stand Up paddle boarding. I decided it was time to go home where the weather is mild all year around and we are always just minutes from the sea.
I find stand up paddle boarding very therapeutic being out in nature in the sea. I am now teaching paddle board yoga and I have run a few well being retreats with yoga on the beach, massage and paddle boarding. “
Jennifer loves being an ASI instructor because of the variety of classes she can teach with her qualification... beginner SUP, SUPsurf,, SUP safaris, SUP yoga and how unexpectedly you come across wildlife while teaching.
“In Belfast Lough there are lots of seals. Often, they shy away but sometimes they follow you curiously. In the winter months they seem more interested, one time I had 9 seals paddling behind me. Dolphins are a real treat if they show up. I was teaching once in Portush harbour and as I was taking a student out of the harbour, a trawler was coming in with 5 very happy dolphins diving and playing around in front. They soon got bored as the boat slowed down but it was amazing seeing them so close up. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me that day!!"
