What’s SUP?

It’s been a while since I’ve wanted to learn a new sport. I’m just not that sporty. I’m pretty happy hiking and cross-country skiing. I like riding my cruiser bike around town. But recently I’ve been wanting to jump onto a new fad: stand up paddleboarding (SUP).

Finn and I were at the Bozeman Beach last weekend, reading and playing in the sand, when I saw them. Standing on fat, short surfboard-like boards, gracefully paddling across the lake, they looked like they were floating on lily pads. I want to do that.

Picnic time.

Everyone else is laying out in bikinis and I am huddled up under the sun shelter with a hat and thick sunscreen.

This is more what I would look like.

I’m not going to do anything about it now, but maybe once the austerity measures end, I’ll rent a board and give it a try. It really looks fun on the ocean.

Any paddle boarders out there? Do you love it or is it just ok?
