Stand Up Paddle

So today the waves were so small, I thought it may be a perfect day to try and catch a wave on the stand up paddle (SUP). My friend Juli Schulz and I took the boards up to Malibu. Right off the bat we saw a ray, it was beautiful. Then the dolphin brothers and sisters or mama and babies or all of the above. After a long paddle, I tried and tried to no avail to catch a wave. This being my third time on a SUP. Determined, I finally caught one. There was another guy on it I was so excited yelling, “I caught it, I caught it.” until I fell on my butt. Laughing so hard when I realized it was Sam George, I turned to him and said “That was the first wave I ever caught on a SUP!” He said “I am glad I was able to ride it with you then.” The funny part is when I first started surfing, I used to run into him checking waves up and down the coast. Once I told him I was just starting and he said “Stick with it.” So I did that was probably about 10 years ago. I stuck with it, now I’m starting over. He was right there to cheer me on again, so positive. Thanks Sam, all smiles!

    Women are some of the biggest leaders in standup paddle boarding. We recently launched a standup paddle board company in Lorain, Ohio providing lessons, rentals, and sales for all skill-levels. I have to say, most of our clientele have been women, young and old. SUP is for everyone but the ladies are paving the way.
