I got a second chance this summer to try paddle boarding. I was very excited to try it again. I learned a few things this time around. The size/shape/quality of the board make a HUGE difference! The board I rented was not as easy to balance....not easy at all. Now, add choppy waves and boats zooming around creating wakes. It was REALLY hard.
I paddled around a bit on my knees to get used to the board. Mr. P stayed on for about 5 minutes and then I had to boot him off so I could try to stand up.
It was super wobbly and it took me several minutes to ease into standing. Once up I had to grip with all my might to stay up and not fall.
It was a very good workout!
I talked Cam into trying too. I'm a bad wife because I've never laughed so hard at him trying to stand up. He didn't give up....even after falling multiple times. It really was hilarious....huge wobble and big splash....repeat. I love you Cam.
I've never been better than Cam at anything physical! Ever! I have to admit I was a little thrilled. Truthfully it must have something to do with my lower center of gravity.
The kids tried the kayak and loved it.
We got to spend our annual day at the water slides with the grandparents and auntie and cousins. So fun!
