Paddled with first timer 'Ken Rioux '

Met Ken at Palmetto Bay boat ramp this morning and unloaded boards off the truck. By the time I parked the truck and walked toward the water Ken was up and paddling . No instruction or verbal guidance. We started to paddle up creek and I gave him tips to work on showed him the proper paddling technique, and soon we were off paddling. We paddled for about 2&1/2 hours. He picked it up easy and I know he's hooked. His wife Jean is a Yoga instructor and I know he's scheming on Yoga and SUP combo.. Ken had replacement surgery on his knee a about a year ago now I think this will be a Ken's new endeavor , Stand Up Paddle Surfing/Boarding.. Glad to share my passion with him.. Mahalo
