I hate to say it, but it looks like time keeps on slippin’ into the future. So here comes Christmas, Kwanza or any of the of the holidays out there. What are you going to get that special someone, who has everything? Another tie? More jewelry? Home-made items and flowers are always nice…
But what about their very own SUP Paddle? One that catches the wind and makes for an exhilarating ride downwind or one that cuts through the water like butter allowing them to have a more efficient excursion on their SUP journey?
Also, take a look at the DaSail™ Kit. It allows for you to take an old paddle and transform it into a wonderful new experience. Reward Yourself Downwind.
Well today the kids wanted to go paddling. So I went. I had a blast. I tell you, I would never want to paddle without a Yawfin™. The Yawfin™ makes paddling so much more enjoyable for me. Every stroke pushes the board forward without much effort on my part. The Yawfin™ honestly cuts down on the fatigue of paddling which allows us to go farther and be appreciative of being out on the water with our favorite people.
I did not take any pictures, but I will set the scene for you… a cool southern California evening in May with black ominous clouds to the east and blue skies with puffy white clouds to the west. The winds were calm, the water peaceful. The kids and I paddled upwind for a bit then sailed on back in the tranquil breeze. It amazes me that every time I pull out the sail I feel like I rediscover how much fun it is. I may be biased, but I really think everyone should have a sail in their paddle, just to feel the freedom and joy that SUP sailing is.
Sorry, I haven’t posted for some time. I fell for a very-not-so-ingenious scam, though, I suppose, tiredness and too much going on contributed to my lack of discernment. It was quite the bummer. A “You have a virus, call this number.” notice popped up on the screen and so I did. Two, it might be three (they all blend together), weeks later and so many, many password changes and more later we are back online. It’s just so tough to be constantly vigilant. At one point in the conversation with the perps, I did have a moment of clarity and I said, “You wouldn’t be doing anything illegal, like trying giving me a virus or anything?” The man with an accent, laughed with an evil little laugh and said, “No, but if you ever have a problem with your computer don’t call anyone else, only us.” They had posed as Apple repair people. Oh, next time I hope to be a little more on the ball.
Please note there are many steps to creating your own SUP Surfboard and this is not a complete guide. This Team Sailpaddle Shaper has had some time training with the necessary tools of shaping. Please do not attempt without the proper training, guidance and tools.
Paddle Out. Sail Home. That’s the motto and we’re sticking to it. Thanks again to our hosts at the Paddle House! You guys are awesome!
The greatest thing about the DaSail™ SUP paddle is that you can have fun SUPing in the wind. The more wind the better! Tuesday was a particularly overcast and windy evening which made for a wonderfully accelerating time on the water. We had a couple of people watching us paddle into the wind and ask, “Aren’t you tired?” Our answer was, “Not really.” Because although paddling into the wind can be a bit rough, sailing home is a breeze and it makes it all the more adventurous.
I hate to lure you all in with food, but since it’s our dinner time we do bring things to share with our fellow paddlers. This Tuesday it was BBQ pork sandwiches. Quite yummy if I do say so myself.
We are excited to be participating in the Redondo Beach Sea Fair this year. You can see our booth by the King Harbor Yacht Club. Come by and ask about our “Sea Fair deal.” It will be a great time for you to demo a paddle. When the wind is up is the best time to SUP with our DaSail™ SUP Paddle.
See you tomorrow! There will be lots to do. Sand Sculpting, face painting, food trucks and more.
Last night we enjoyed a nice breeze and great hospitality at the Paddle House on the Redondo Beach Pier. A big thank you to Patrick and Julienne for hosting such a fun event. We invite you all down to demo a DaSail™ SUP paddle at the Paddle House. We will be meeting up there every other Tuesday from 5-7pm. Our next scheduled Tuesday is May 26th. Come on down and enjoy an evening with us. We’d love to introduce you to how our DaSail™ SUP paddle brings a whole new dimension to Stand Up Paddle Boarding. Looking forward to our next demo.
