Time to Paddle?

Posted: March 20, 2011 in SUP

I am counting the days until it gets warm enough to get out on the water.  This blog has mostly been about art so far, but this is year two of my stand up paddling hobby.  I have been on a 12′ SUPATX board, which has done me just fine.  Anyone who hasn’t tried this sport, it is a really fun workout.  I am not sure how I am going to work paddling into the blog that has been about art to date, but I am getting excited that it is starting to warm up and have high hopes that I can get on the water soon.  Thanks to MR for the jersey, very much appreciated.

One of the few issues I have had paddling is with my feet.  In lakes it is not a big deal, but rivers and other places where I have to step  on rocks etc. it is  a bummer to be bare foot, but also a bummer to paddle in shoes that effect balance (which is pretty important on a paddle board in cold water).  This year I am trying a solution.  These look funny, but I think they might be the right fix.

My buddy MR turned me on to this blog, this guy paddles (in addition to other sports) with Laird Hamilton.  This post is pretty amazing http://www.davidkalama.com/2011/03/05/possessed/
