Trying out the new paddleboard!

Wednesday, July 03, 2013

My mum and I went in together and bought a stand up paddleboard.
This afternoon was our chance to go out and give it a go!!!!
I've been hooked on SUP for awhile now and have been itching to buy one (but it just wasn't quite in my budget!).
Mum has been itching to try it and is convinced that because her 2 daughters love it that she would too..... so we combined our resources and shared the cost of one!
It was priceless listening to my mum this afternoon (her first time paddling on one ever)....she kept exclaiming about all that she could see (the water is soooo clear here) and then she would exclaim how much she was loving paddling!
My sister who introduced us to the sport is going to love seeing the pictures I posted of our 70 year old mum just off shore paddling along!
I can hardly wait for tomorrow! I can see that this will be summer plans will shift according to the weather and whether I can get to the beach!

    I found out yesterday that people use SUPs around here. I just didn't know it. The local news had a story yesterday about two people who SUPed their way across Lake Michigan, 80 miles. It must be especially fun where you live! Kudos to your mom!

    So cool! I am so delighted we keep trying new things despite our age, despite our silly body changes, and despite what the world thinks. Also, congrats on getting the sugar cravings under control.

    Oohhh... I've always wanted to try paddleboarding, but I've been intimidated. You've both inspired me :)
