This wasn’t the first time I’ve used Perception’s long standing 5-0 surf sit on top, but it’s the first time I’d been able to throw a fully tricked out hull – compete with thigh straps, performance wave fin and specific surf paddle – at a few frothy waves. It’s also not a new kayak in any sense. There’s always merit in testing kit perceived as established though – especially if it’s a design that’s still misunderstood.

Earlier in the year the family and I hit up the hallowed shores of Vassiliki, Lefkas, Greece. Not traditionally associated with stand up paddling, it’s more of a windsurf spot. It is, however, perfect for a bit of flat water SUP in the mornings. If you’re looking for somewhere different for your stand up shenanigans then have a read for some Hellenic inspiration.
