We walked down to the river (past all sorts of the usual Georgetown morning traffic), kayaked for a couple of hours then met a friend for a bit of SUPing.

Sure worked up an appetite.

Traffic was no better on the walk home (the more I see folks driving the less it appeals).

Life is better on the water!

I don't get it. Seems uncomfortable and inefficient.
Highly amusing (and actually a pretty good workout).

The best thing about those boards is all the hotz women that like to ride them up there at Tahoe. Muscular legs and bikini bottoms! Whoo hoo.

How much progress do you make, compared with a regular kayak?
In our tandem kayak (which is kind of a go-fast boat) we travel about 6 miles an hour. On the SUPs we covered 3 miles in an hour. I suspect we will never be able to go much faster on the SUPs, I know we can go faster on the kayak if we want to work really, really hard.

Wind has a much greater effect on a SUP than a kayak-today wasn't windy but winds will really push a SUP around.

Either way (kayak or SUP) we were likely traveling much faster past Georgetown than drivers were! :thumbsup:

Yeah, does not seem like something I could get into.
I'd love one for catching waves.

If 6 mph is your normal cruise speed in that boat, I'm seriously impressed!!!
