Test your inner primate…
When Emily Smith from the Plymouth Herald joined us at Tree Surfers…. this is what she had to say …..
Flying through the air and swinging into rope nets – it certainly seems to be the best way to enjoy the Tamar Valley this summer. Emily Smith swapped the office for the great outdoors and did her best primate impression
The tree wobbles as I stand on a small wooden platform meters from the ground. I look down – close my eyes, take a deep breath and go for it – it seems there is no way out other than to fly through the trees.
Not scared of heights myself there is still something quite daunting about looking out across a wooden walkway and knowing there is no other way down. The harness keeps you safe but doesn’t make you feel restricted – allowing you to feel free at the tops of the trees.
But it’s not just me who has given tree surfing a go – it seems everyone is keen to try their best primate impressions and people of all ages are queuing to swing through the trees at Tamar Trails, near Tavistock.
