I have been doing this for the last couple months, but I guess it has really been getting trendy.

I can tell you that it is a great workout and once you learn to paddle onto waves their is no difference between it and surfing.

Much cooler if there are waves.


I'm a surfer, but haven't tried stand up paddling. I see a lot of older dudes and some of the lifeguards doing it. Looks like it would be a good workout for your core. But, having to hold on to a paddle and the bigger board kinda kills it for me.

I've been in the water a couple of times at Little Dume in Malibu when Laird Hamilton showed up on a stand up board. He's ridiculously good.

Neo, if you see Laird sometime you should call him gay.

I mostly see older guys doing it. And they're always way past the break. But I respect them.

Maybe I'll try this approach with my snowboard. Although, I don't want to be labeled trendy.

You do realize that that is the worst thing you can call anybody/anything in the entire word (at least according to Ron & Fez)

Thanks funny I learn (an continue to learn) in malibu. Cant go to some of the best spots like county line or chart house b/c their are just too many regular surfers. I think I saw laird once at coogies with his tall volleyball player wife but i could be mistaken.
