|Stand UP Paddle Rental|
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.
