yeah, not really.  I think I'm going a little crazy with the beaches closed.

Dude, that was great.

Now all you have to do is just never stop paddling in the lineup and youíll have the best performing SUP around. lol

I'm getting so bored that I tried to dock start my foil sup and I couldn't get anything going at all.  Plus what a huge pain to get it out of the water every time.  Then I thought, what the hell, might as well grab the paddle with the prone board. 

GL240 narrow tail long mast.

I think I need a wing, but I'm putting off new purchases until I've tried everything I can think of with the gear I already have. 

I think next I want to try and get a flatwater SUP start.  I tried the other day and never came even close.  I'll put on a front footstrap and try again.

Tried to stand up on an 80L board and couldn't even get to my feet.

There was a guy about a year ago who did a 'dead start'.   He's got a few tips.

3 sessions on the water trying like mad to flatwater SUP start - none of my attempt were even slightly promising.  I'm going to give it a few more tries. 

On the other hand, I did successfully dockstart my SUP with a paddle in hand and pumped it around a little (once out of a lot of attempts).  Trying to get that wired just so I can practice the pump-pump-paddle cadence.
