The One Show segment - SUP Surfing Dogs!

I was so lucky today to be invited by my esteemed friend Vicky Mansfield from Paws on Board to the beautiful Bournemouth beach to watch and take photos of her being filmed doing an amazing job at teaching dogs to surf for The One Show (BBC). Sadly my partner in crime could not attend with me on this occasion as she was unwell, hopefully there will be lots more similar opportunities for us to attend in the pipeline. However, it was a great morning and exciting morning from start to finish!

British Weather at the Beach!

It was a typical British summer morning in delightful Dorset. Rain, sunshine, high winds and a bit of dense cloud thrown in for good measure. Pretty much every weather type you could possibly imagine which obviously made filming tricky and lengthy!

When will the show air?

I am unclear at the time of writing this blog as to how long the segment is going to be as it has not aired yet however, the film crew were there as was I super early to setup. I had to wait for breaks in the weather to be able to film and get the best action shots available. We think the segment will air in 2 weeks time!

Great down to Earth people

I met so many wonderful people on set, everybody working harmoniously together to get the best shots out of the weather. Presenter was great and down to earth, which was amazing to work with. The day couldn’t have gone ahead without The Red Paddle Co who provided all of the surfing and paddle boarding equipment for the segment. You can hire direct from them from their tent on Branksome Dean Chine beach.

Sadly doggy didn’t want to go out on the paddle board!

The morning went quickly

Almost as soon as everybody had arrived, it was time to showcase what everybody could do and I had some super models to photograph!
