Extreme Dreams




16th April, 2016 – Loch Lomond
The forecast was perfect for a north-south downwinder, with the wind hitting 14-19mph from 10am.
As well as Allistair S, SUP Ecosse Ian, and myself, Cathy K had come along to join us for the first couple of hours.
We hit the water, at Ardlui, a little after 10am, and the wind was waiting for us.
8 miles, and a little under 2 hours later, we were level with Tarbet, where Cathy left us.
From here on, the wind seemed to be coming from our 5 o’clock, meaning a lot of left paddling and very little right.  This continued>Read more here...

The Extreme Dreams website was launched in 2002, (4 years before the BBC's TV series of the same name), and is based around the adventures of registered blind extreme sports enthusiast, adventurer, and public speaker, Dean "Deano" Dunbar.
The adventures and extreme sports featured on the left hand side are not a random list, but have all been done by Dean, (The Blind Man), and some have included world firsts.
Please note, Extreme Dreams does NOT offer any activities, but a link to the company we used, (if we used one), can be found at the bottom of most activity pages.

Alternatively, you can go to the links page and find more activities, extreme sports and providers there. 
Extreme Dreams is continually growing as we try more extreme sports and take up new challenges.
