Back on the right coast

Stand UP Paddle Rental
Stand UP Paddle Rental
It's been awhile, I think I'll start all my posts this way from now on, since it's usually a while.  I had a good time SUPin' it up on the left coast.

Found a little spot to rent some Stand Up Paddle gear from.  Super friendly, reasonable $$ and the SUPS board did the jobby-job (it wasn't like I was chasing huge surf).

If you get a chance and you're in the Destin/ Fort Walton FLA area stop by Liquid Surf and Sail.  Actually one of the guys in the boat below was dating one of the wahines from the shop, always a smaller world than we think.

I spent the afternoon out in front of a friends hotel chasing wind chop breaking over a shallow sand bar.  The water was warm, comfortable and fun.

It was the first time I'd been in the water down here.  Surprisingly, some of these little wind chops provided a long ride, some right onto the sand.  Oh how Stand Up Paddle Surfing is so much fun…. anywhere.  On a Stand Up you get a better perspective on whats happening down below you.  So, let's see, in the few hours I was on the water I saw sharks, dolphins, feeder fish of all kinds of crazy bright colors, large very sushi-like fish and rays.  Too cool.

Definitely a blast.  Looking for more excuses to visit besides friendly people, good food, and the beach.

Stand up Paddling in Destin Fla

I switched coasts for the weekend. Visiting the Emerald Coast over here on the East Coast. The weather is right for a little SUPS today. Gonna find a place to rent a board and get my feet wet before the thunderstorms come in.

Anybody know of any places down here that have reasonable rentals?

Aloha SUPin' Friday

The weather was great for a little SUP action today.  More so for the paddling and not the surfing.  BUT, it's always a good day to surf it.  Warm air, light winds and smaller swell makes for a comfortable day to go stand on the water.  Hope everyone had a chance to experience.

Go get some before it gets real windy

Monday morning and the wind chimes are already giving me the warning, "get our there before it really starts to blow"! On my way home last night I took a look a Lowers and it was a beatiful thing. Not many people in the water for the 3-5 foot swell running. And I don't at ALL recommend taking a Stand Up Paddle Surfboard in to the line up there. Only because if the landlord shows it costs a couple hundee for your eviction notice. Not saying it hasn't been done before, just saying. A time that comes to mind is when 3 of us took a little pit stop as we paddled from San Clemente to Oceanside Harbor. Oh and another SUPS session when... oh another.... But just saying.

Paddle with some Aloha. Its best for all!
