First things first: I watched the Australia – Germany game yesterday (DVR, I love you) and I’m only going to say that it left me sobbing. Ok, maybe not sobbing, but shaking my head, at least. 4-0? Unwarranted red cards? For shame.
Now that that’s out of the way, I can tell you that I SUPed for the first time yesterday, too. My roomie and I rented the boards from a guy in the harbor who gave me a quick lesson before sending me off into the strong westerly winds. I hit a docked boat. After that, all was good. If you haven’t tried it, SUPing is kind of a mix between canoeing and longboarding. It’s weird because you stand with your feet shoulder-width apart, side by side, so the stance is totally different than surfing, but once you get used to it, it’s actually so much fun. And a really great workout.
