Hi! Thanks for the comment on my paddleboarding blog. I gotta tell you, I am terrified of the ocean. I don't have very good balance AT ALL. And I enjoyed every minute of this activity! Doing it at Mission Bay was nice because it wasn't too deep and I could see through the water to the ocean floor (only about 4 feet or less). And as for the balancing part, the board is so big and buoyant, it makes it easy to find your footing. If you get a chance, I highly recommend doing it!!! You totally could do it! Hope you're having a great week so far and the rest of your week is wonderful!
