thanks, it was tough to get out but it was actually great! hands got a little cold but the npx hoodie and npx paddle bottoms were just fine. i cant say they would be if i fell in tho  :-\ its almost time to go to the 6/7 hooded wetsuit and die of sweat  ::)

some of the best days are the ones that you have to drag yourself to the shore!

That's nice work getting out when it's freezing over. Tryin real hard not to fall in I guess.

Do you have any recommendations for Canadian winter SUP gear. I want to continue riding all year but I also don't want to die if I fall in.

Great pics, thanks for sharing.
Ride for life!
