After surfing nothing but a 7'8 the last 18 months, no other board seemed fun anymore. Our 9'0 collect dust. We finally sold it. 9'5's didn't cut it either. Then we bought this 11'3 to windsurf. But, as usual, when you buy new windsurf gear the wind doesn't cooperate. So we SUPed this monster at the inlet. It was crazy fun. We felt silly and were grinning like fools out there. So much fun. I think we found the perfect quiver.
A big thanks to Igor today. He loaned us his two Mistral windsurfing SUPs. Wind was 10 mph. So much fun. I'm thinking it might be time to put the downwind race SUPs on Craig's List and get a couple of old school longboard SUP/windsurfers. No point in having beautiful weather and not be able to get in the ocean. With no waves, and light wind, we're stuck on land with our current gear. That's not acceptable anymore.
The boards hang off the back of the truck a lot, but it works.
