I've got a sup and the weather became warm, so it was finally time today to take it to water and try it out. Map says that I have to go 3km to get to the water with sup on my back, so I took nordic walking poles to make it easier for myself. I have a pair from Blizzard company, as I am really a fan of World of warcraft.
That sup weights on my back about 13 kg with everything included. But I also carry water, an older camera and a blanket in waterproof bag.
To my delight I've found out that I can go entire journey to water no problem, didn't need any pause. Those nordic poles really do have an effect. Anyway I reached the water and unpacked the sup to enjoy few hours on owater, before going back. Would stay longer, I really love being on boat, but I had to keep strength for return journey.
Only when I've reached water, I've found out that I didn't take correct parts for my paddle so I couldn't attach the handle. But no matter...
Oh your getting there though Morell,your bound to make a few mistakes and learn for next time out,your only human..lol we all do things like that,great to see your enjoying the board and getting out on it now..good on you..I see you have some watchers as you enter the water,the water must have warmed up fast to be swimming so soon into summer. So can you attach a mast to that board and go sailing on it also?
Oh yeah. I unpacekd the ship on small beach as it was the first I've reached and from there sailed to the big beach which was full of people having fun.
No, the sups that can be made into kind of yachts are far cossier. This one has only handle in the middle. Still it was great choice, it is build for long hours on water, for long trips. The white circle you see is for filling the "chamber" with air. this one has two separated chambers for air, which is quite clever idea, if your sup gets damaged far from shores, the remaining one will keep serving. (I also think that it makes filling the sup with air easier)
Oh so its blow up paddle board???? and how do you get the air into it,does it come with a pump of some kind? Those kids look like they are having a good time..
I had to buy paddle separately, but the pump was included and quite big one. You can check their company page about the product to see all there is to know about it, I got the smaller of the two, 11'6''
And yes, the kids were having fun and we all around were laughing with them, it was fun to watch them.
Ahhh thanks for the link.. they are rather cool,I think you did well in making the right choice in purchasing it..
