Look out for this man on the river today (Sunday).

Howard Leather is expected to arrive on the Surbiton stretch of the Thames mid afternoon, probably around 3pm.

The paddleboard instructor is part of the way through an epic 900-mile circuit of England’s rivers and canals – he has already done well over 300 miles.

Howard, 38, who is also a trained mountain leader as well as a keen hiker, is hoping others will join him part of the way en route downstream towards Kew, before he heads north on the next part of his journey on the Grand Union Canal.

“I would absolutely love for people to join me for the ‘Surbiton’ stretch. I have to join the Grand Union just before Kew Bridge so it seems like a great stretch to have company for.

“The perfect scenario would be if I could find somewhere to stay in Surbiton then have people to paddle out with in the morning, or even a social paddle in the evening (I still haven’t had the chance to try my board without luggage!)”

If you could offer room in your garden for Howard’s hammock get in touch with him via Instagram or Facebook @howards_adventure or email him at hleather82@googlemail.com

Howard, 38, believes paddleboarding is an incredible way to increase mindfulness and wellbeing and is hoping to raise awareness of the importance of mental health through his endeavour.
