A group of mothers have combined playgroup with stand-up paddleboarding to increase fitness and health in a central Queensland coastal town.

The not-for-profit organisation Surfing Mums Australia has groups across the country that provide the opportunity for mothers to surf while their children are cared for.

SMA secretary Dr Danya Hodgetts said the Yeppoon Main Beach in central Queensland does not always cater to surfers, so the local group has had to adapt.

“Because there’s not really great waves, we’re doing stand-up paddleboarding,” she said.
