I have compiled a video of a 2 day SUP session on Inle lake in the mountainous Shan state of Myanmar.
I have been paddling with some local fishermen who are kwown for rowing with one leg and I swapped my board with their traditional boat.
I followed them in their fishing activities.

An interesting video to watch. I found it quite unique to see how these guys row/paddle with one leg.

Thanks for sharing the video.

Thank's for posting. My mother in law was born there, so I always forward your videos. She loves seeing it again. Beautiful place!
It's not overhead to me!
8'8" L-41 ST and a whole pile of boards I rarely use.

Thank you Night Wing.
Yes you're right, I haven't seen this rowing technique anywhere else so far. It is part of the unique environment of this beautiful place.

Yes this place is amazing. I have been there four times, including three SUP sessions, between February and April this year. I am not surprised that your mother in law loves it  :).

Thanks for stoking my wanderlust!  The perfect antidote to the recent images from Everest.

Hi Chan, thank you for your comments. You're right, it's not possible to stay insensitive to the charm of this place and its people.
It's perfect to clear your mind and stay in a good mood all day long.

 I do the same leg hook and motion to bring the swimming pool cleaning pole back to me with less effort when I'm scrubbing the liner.

Myanmar, I am glad this came up again, I missed it the first time around.

That looked like a wonderful day!
The jewel of travel is to meet the people engaged in daily life.... and very cool to see him try SUP!
