On my own two feet

Posted by Ken Campbell July 17, 2008 0 Comment 556 views

I believe I am about to take up a new hobby. I tried stand-up paddleboarding for the first time last weekend and I was instantly hooked. Elements of canoeing, surfing and skateboarding all come together in a package that is fast, elegant and exciting. After less than an hour of effort, I felt like I’d already made progress. It seems like it would be a blast on flat water and, once I develop the skills, I’m going to love the lumpy water even more.

It has been a long time since I tried something completely new and walked away knowing that it was meant for me. I see all kinds of options here: a stand-up cruise down Hood Canal, surfing at Moclips and Taholah, maybe even a coastal tour or a crossing to Vancouver Island. What a perspective-bender. I am in.

More on this as it develops.

(For the record, the photo above is someone else, not me. Yet.)
