Jo Moseley is the author of bestselling Stand Up Paddleboarding in Great Britain – Beautiful Places to Paddleboard in England, Scotland and Wales.
In 2019 Jo, then aged 54, was the first woman to SUP coast to coast picking up litter and fundraising for 2 MinuteBeachClean Foundation and the surf therapy charity, The Wave Project.
When she created the idea in 2016, she was originally told it sounded too much for a woman of her age – Jo was 51 at the time.
A film about her adventure called Brave Enough – A Journey Home to Joy has been screened at prestigious film festivals such as Kendal Mountain Film Festival and Sheffield Adventure Film Festival.
She is also the host of the popular The Joy of SUP – the Paddleboarding Sunshine podcast.
In summer 2021, Jo set off with her board Grace, named after the RNLI heroine Grace Darling, to research beautiful places to SUP. From Loch Ness to the Lizard Peninsula, Ullswater to Wells Next The Sea and Afon Teifi to the Regent’s Canal. She slept on her board under the stars, saw dolphins, seals and huge jellyfish and paddled at sunrise and sunset. In her book, she shares stories of the beautiful places she visited, the kindness of the SUP community and helpful tips on safety, starting and progressing in SUP.
