Your kid won't become traumatized by a lunatuc sailing instructor screaming at her during sailing camp. It's just a about fun.
Versatility is the name of the game. You can throw multiple boards on the roof of your car, so they're easy to transport. You can paddle them on rivers, lakes, bays and the ocean. You can go surfing. You can practice your asanas on them. You can fish from them. You can even put a mast on one and go windsurfing. Clean up is a snap!
Santa's going to head out onto the water for a relaxing session.So have a great weekend (the last one of the year), and follow Santa's example. Try and make it out onto or into the water this weekend, even if it's just splashing around the bathtub.
We paddlers love to be referred to by surfers as "Goat Boaters."Such a term of endearment. Of course when I swap out the ski for a little stand up paddling, I'm called a janitor. Then again when I bodysurf, I fear for my life when I see "Goat Boaters" and "Janitors." So much love. Can't we all just get along. see notes
note to all: respect the lineup. learn surfing etiquette! note fellow paddlers: don't be a wave hog, use common sense, don't go paddling into an area with a lot of surfers.
Even world class athletes wipeout! If our intrepid photographer hadn't brought his camera with him, this glorious event would have been lost forever. But now it will live on in the digital universe for eternity .
They're several of the them paddling along the water front, and none of them want to go out to the break and hang ten. I had to scour my photos to find a photo of a guy paddling by me. (I thought I took more.)
