Watch Oscar the paddleboarding Staffy take to the waters of Liverpool
Liverpudlian Jayne Rigby has been cruising the waters of the Mersey since the summer, taking part in her new hobby of paddleboarding. But she is not travelling alone, as she is joined by six-year-old Oscar, the Staffordshire Bull Terrier.
Miss Rigby first tried the sport earlier this year when on holiday in Jersey and decided to give it a go when she returned home, sharing it with her four-legged friend.
They first took to the water together at the Liverpool Watersports Centre in July after first practising on dry land to ensure Oscar could stand on the board.
Now, the two head out on the paddleboard a couple of times a month (weather dependent) and attract a lot of attention during their sessions.
Speaking of their paddling adventures together, Jayne says:
“Oscar loves paddle boarding. He has his little life jacket and he just has a little nose at everything as we go past.
“People who see us go by like to watch him too. Tourists at the docks will often stop and take pictures of us as we cruise along.
“On the way back from our paddle out we both sit back on the board and have a little cuddle and watch the world go by. It’s nice for people to see.”
Take a look at the short video below to see Oscar heading out on the water, and if you are looking to try the sport for yourself, why not take a look at our SUP boards for sale?
