Back on the right coast

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.
