New Year SUP Demo

We had a great turnout for our first SUP demo of the year yesterday with folks coming to Santa Barbara from Michigan, Carmel…Orange, Los Angeles, Ventura, and San Luis Obispo County…despite the cool weather with air and H20 temps in the mid-50’s, it was a gorgeous day with the stoke level running red hot for standup paddling…

Lots of families taking advantage of our free instruction of SUP fundamentals…and, super stable boards…

We even had a Rabbi stop by to give it a go…he has never done standup before…I was able to keep my promise to him that he wouldn’t get wet or lose his glasses…even, talked him into giving my 8’6″ Jammer a go…and, he stayed dry!

Somebody up there must be watching and listening because I’ve made the same promise to a nun and a Buddhist priest and kept it…;-)

God is dog spelled backwards…is it not?…makes you wonder in light of the Arizona tragedy, why people can’t learn unconditional love for each other?

Our Chocolate Labs, Molly and Annie, befriending a complete stranger…and, vice versa…

Koren’s new puppy, Montana, standup piddling…er, uh, I mean paddling…;-)

The Starboard Big Easy is a great family board…tandem paddle…take your dog…windsurf on it…Warren and Koren were convinced and took one home…

Monica with her daughter tandem on the 2011 brushed carbon 11’2″ x 30″ Blend…this Monterey County family took home a Blend in Silver and a 10’5″ Drive in Aqua…perfect family combo…

Ohana stoke…the whole reason that we’re in this business…

Lots of other newly stoked clients left our shop yesterday…

Candy Apple and Donna…fun folks and great waterwomen…

There’s over 130 images from yesterday’s SUP demo in this GALLERY
