    I don't know about you guys but being in the water with surfer girls in bikinis is reason enough to take up the sport.

    Speaking of paddleboarding, looks like Taylor Swift has joined the paddleboarding ranks:

    Looks like she needs help with the leash though.

    It looks it SkiStef. Not only CT's coastalzone but W.Br.Penobscot's Big Eddy(Maine) -> nice clean, cold, (~12'deep(in midstream), ~60' out from foreground(shore) is ~1-5')....water on a hot summer day gets weekly, if not daily, participants..., BUT ahh, not the old fogie shooting the guy/kid in the YouTube video. Sorry...couldn't find anything with anyone donning colorful thongs...

    Still looks like the wrong tool for the job. But at least not boring....

    I think this was the original intended use to get up on surf easier which is more fun, but now has been applied to a broader use which could seem boring but also very chill!

    If you take what the mountain gives you, you will always have fun!

    Catching waves is easier in an SUP -- longer board plus the paddle gives you more propulsion. You can get more rides on an SUP than on a standard longboard.

    I brought out my short board last Saturday because the waves were finally breaking on the Cape. There was an SUP in the lineup. That guy got more and longer rides than me.
    I was watching some guys surf SUPs at Narragansett beach in Rhode Island 2 weeks ago and they were getting the best rides out of anyone! It looked like so much fun!
