I have been wanting to try stand-up paddleboarding (kind of a cross between a kayak and a surf board) for about two months but it has been nearly impossible to set up a lesson. I finally have a firm date...I have a lesson tomorrow at 10AM in Hermosa Beach. It should be fun. If it goes well, I plan on buying a board and getting out on the ocean a few times a week.

I saw this demonstrated on a program. Looks like a surf board with a paddle. Very cool.

That is exactly what it is. It is easier than surfing (much more stable) but you can take it in heavier surf once you have the skills. It should be fun.

Every time I go to Waikiki I'm jealous of those guys who can just glide out past the waves and hang out beyond where the crowds collect. I would inhale 2 gallons of salt water just trying to get on one of those boards. Good luck, let us know how it goes!

How did it go? I've been interested in trying SUP for a while now.

I ended up being derailed by a sinus infection and need to reschedule. Hopefully I get a chance this coming week.

That's terrible Phil. I hope your feeling better now.
