Remember last week when I went to 3 different places to try and get my disposable waterproof camera developed?  Well the RESULTS ARE IN.  Check out our fun day SUPing!

Easy does it…slowly, slowly…STAND UP paddleboard SUCCESS!

Paddled out to the kelp bed and used the kelp to anchor our boards for yoga.

The time when Alice was paddling to shore, got picked up by a scary giant wave and took this picture of me…

We’re what’s up, SUP!

I finally popped my SUP cherry (which I recently learned stands for Stand Up Paddleboard).  And it was SO MUCH FUN.  And scary.  But mostly fun.  As someone who loves yoga, yoga on a paddleboard provides a whole new level of balance challenges.  Who ever thought of this crazy (and genius) idea of doing yoga on a 10×3 ft board over a mildly rocky sea?  There may be nothing more tranquil (and simultaneously terrifying) about being out there surrounded by beautiful nature. (my thought bubble: don’t think about sharks, don’t think about sharks, don’t think about sharks. does that look like a fin to you?).  Thankfully with my beginner’s luck I did not topple overboard this time and become shark bait.  All irrational fears aside, if you are ever the slightest bit curious about SUP, I highly recommend it!  Even if you are a landlubber like me.  Still not convinced?  Here are 10 more reasons why you should try yoga on a stand up paddleboard.

Special shout out to our fellow adventure seeking buddies, kathy and jennie for joining us on our first SUP yoga excursion!  Can’t wait to do it again 🙂
