Land Paddling..or ''SKADDLING''

Down in Florida at my parents house assisting my Dad as my Mom fights her battle with Lung Cancer. ............................SO DON'T SMOKE...................


I cant get to the water so I was able to make a homemade Kahuna Big Stick and at least enjoy the sensation of gliding SUP style on my carve board.. .My parents live at the bottom of the sloped street which is great for down hill runs...

Love Skaddling.....

2-3 ft and fun,.... again

Summer continues with warm temps and clean thigh waist waves. I rode my small PSH and had so much fun.. What a loose maneuverable board.....Felt good to get in the water and get my mind off of reality....

2 ftsurf, heavy offshores = SUP fun

Fun little left over wind swell waves from the strong winds last night. Perry, Scott, Heather and Ishared waves as Seppe took a few shots. ''Feel Better Bruddah'' The 15-20 knot WNW winds were offshore and cleaned up the surf enough to have fun on the SUP . Weather was warm and sun was shining makes for a great time to ''Occupy The Water''.. (CK ..aka.. Watermonkey)

10+ mile paddle..Time for pondering and reflection...

Seppe and I paddled up and down Broad Creek today in calm glassy water with no wind that created for spectacular reflections. Seemed like we were paddling among the clouds.. I guess you can say paddleboarding is a piece of heaven and does wonders for the soul..

We switched up paddling into waves and taking pics. Enjoy..

Fun chilly waves today

This is why we had some surf today.. and the next couple of days...

Here are some GoPro pics from today's session at S.Forest beach.Winds were slight offshore with some lump waist-stomach high waves. Was good to get in the water but the strong cool winds and water made for a chilly session.

Water temps dropped in the low 60's ....like 62 *F to be exact

Winter has started.
