Starboard Touring 14' with Bryan Szymanski

The Starboard 14' Touring is a performance touring board with very high stability for paddlers up to 250 pounds. It has plenty of load capacity front and rear with its 10 tie down points and handles a wide range of water conditions with ease. In this review Starboard designer Brian Syzmanski reviews the details of its shape and its features are reviewed as well. This is a great board for cruising touring or even getting into racing.

Season is on now..

Business is picking up with several trips and yoga this weekend. Harbour Town and South Beach paddleboarding  exploration.  Seemed to be a long cool Spring  and we're ALL hoping summer is here to stay for at least 3 months... 
You'll never know what you'll discover in the tidal creeks.. As I paddled by this little wooden boat you thoughts of its history and the story of how it arrived in  this spot. 
Displaced, but at home ...

''Sunburnt and Salty '' blog by Caitlin Lawson

Here is a great Blog by a local surfer  living in Jax Beach. Comes from a surfing family. Parents, Rick and Julie Lawson and her  uncles and cousins..Watched her grow up surfing from a little 7 year old tadpole  to a water woman and now Caitlin has the whole world in front of her.  Cruise around her blog and keep in your favorites.. There is some great words on surfing, living and insight on what inspires oneself....She has written for Surfing Mag and other publications... Here is a little background about Miss Lawson .. I'll keep a link to her blog on this site..  

Thanks Caitlin.... 

'''Caitlin Lawson ''    I'm living in Jacksonville Beach, FL, I was born and raised in the small beach-town of Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I was in the water before I could walk. My parents are both surfers and lovers of the great outdoors. They also are the ones who instilled in me a great passion for traveling.  I’ve surfed my entire life and don’t plan on quitting.
I discovered yoga about a year and a half ago and have been regularly practicing ever since. Now I am about to start a 200-hour RYT Teacher Training program at my local studio. I am excited to continue my practice and hope it’s something I can make a career out of.I graduated from the University of North Florida this past December with a degree in Mass Communication and a concentration in Advertising. Although I don’t know if advertising is really what I want to do, it allowed me to improve on my creativity through art, design and writing and learned a ton about marketing tools and social media. Now that I’m done with school I’m focusing on some of my goals: starting my own jewelry line, receiving my RYT certification, traveling the world, searching for perfect waves and experiencing as many new people and different cultures as possible… I am greatly inspired by passionate, driven individuals.
And I plan to write about it all! So this blog serves as a journal for me – where I can write about surfing, yoga, traveling or whatever is on my mind! It’s also a tool to keep me writing and to connect with other writers, readers and creatives, and really share my experiences with whoever is willing to listen. I appreciate every comment I receive and I love hearing others’ perspectives. And hopefully, some of this will inspire others to do the same!
So enjoy! xoxo  Cait...
