Title: Gotta get back to SUP
Post by: surfcowboy on February 22, 2020, 08:19:46 AM
Did a session with Tom in SD last week. (Soooo appreciated btw, thank you) and it was my first Surf SUP session in a year. Lots of reasons but mainly Ive wanted to focus on prone skills.

One, your surfing translates. I am a far better SUP surfer for taking the last two years off. And two, while different, I will now maintain that standup surfing requires a level of fitness that is actually beyond prone surfing. Sure, my shoulders and back are stronger for long boarding these months. But my body and heart were way more worked in 90 min of SUP on a shorter board (75.) so while Im about to start a foil adventure, Ill also be SUP foiling for sure and hope to build another 9-ish SUS board too.

Both or all 3 kinds of boards will be on my car this year.

Pono, that SD paddle out is a bear, no?

Don't listen to him Pono, it was small surf and very low tide. Getting in was easy_peasy, not the shit I took you to. Anyway, it was a gas supping with you cowboy

I was pretty sure Tom was trying to kill me.
