Petition to allow the use of Stand up Paddleboards on Ennerdale & Thirlmere

United utilities have this year 2021 stopped the use of paddleboards on two of its lake district lakes which were previously allowed.

They still allow the use of Kayaks and Canoes on these lakes (this includes inflatables)

The reason is, they consider there is a higher risk of drowning accidents by the use of SUPs due the increased risk of falling into cold water.

SUP has incresed masively in popularity however there have been no calls for emergency services to SUP accidents or drownings in either of these two lakes.

The risk is no higher than those people using Canoes and Kayaks especially inflatable ones.
