Yes, that article revealed more into his personal history and he has an inspiring story. I draw parallels with what he describes in paddling for distance, not speed, and just with everything feeling right while on the water on an SUP.

No other outdoor pursuit has got me into that zone of being in the moment and having that combination of mindfulness while still getting exercise like sup. Paddling kayaks and canoes is relaxing and also fun, but the full body experience You get while standing up is the game changer.

Beautiful indeed. And yes, Sunova is most easy to deal with and very responsive by far. Even though zillion miles away.

Bill,  I used a pair of 'Wheeleez' for a sand cart to all my kite c'hit back in about 2003 - ' repurposed into a SUP, chair, cooler, etc. hauler for the long walk (return is much harder..) to the water. 

The tires/wheels are still good.  I took one off the cart to use it as a front on this insta-kart I made from a discarded skimboard. The gray pair are 'similars' off Amazon. 


Beautiful bottom shape, eh?  The other cool part -even tho' a zillion miles away- you are still 'dealing direct' as you would with a local shaper/finisher. Cool.

Sometimes I think some of the rules politicians make have something to do with "common sense" or the lack of.

In my state of Texas, when dealing with the likes of personal watercraft, boats, ships etc; our politicians have enough common sense to know when they are "out of their league" on the subjects they make laws for.

For kayaks, canoes and standup paddleboards, the politicians had the good common sense to ask the US Coast Guard and base their laws for us in Texas on Coast Guard regulations.

With that said, even though our public lakes are open during the pandemic, the boat marinas and parks on our public lakes are "closed" at the moment so one can't get on the lake.

There are exceptions though. If one owns a lake front property so their backyard borders the lake with a bulkhead, boat house, slip or pier which connects to the lake, then one can get on the lake using a boat, canoe or sup.

But if there is more than one person in boat and both people are not 6' away from each other, then the TPWD (Texas Parks and Wildlife Department game wardens plying the lake in their 25' long twin engine Boston Whaler can flag the boat owner down and tell you to get off the lake or ticket the boat owner depending on their "discretion" for the incident.

Since I live in a subdivision with two private lakes (not open to the public), I can sup to my "hearts delight". If I'm not the only one on the lake supping at the time, we have to "keep our distance".

But since no one else sups, I have the entire private lake to myself and I'm taking advantage of that at the moment because I flat water paddle 2 or 3 times a week now so I don't get "cabin fever" during this time of voluntary staying at home.

Here is a great waterstart vid.  He is starting toe side.  Looks like a 6 meter in pretty modest wind.  Very cool.
