Lake Boarding. Dust off your shortboard.

We had a nice family vacation at the lake this past weekend.  Leah, Jennifer and I took out old greeny to make a little wave.  We paddle surfed the 10'5 Drive, wake boarded and towed a 6'2 surf board which was everyones favourite in all the choppy water.  The board has glassed in thruster fins that are way too big for me but dang that thing is fun to rip.  Add in some pumping and the resistance from the tow goes pretty low but we certainly didn't have enough wave to toss the rope. 




We even got Jennifer riding a surf board for the first time.

Saturday evening we did some flat water paddling with the Mana, Fly and Drive.  Lots of folks out on their deck starting or continuing the partying noticed and showed lots of interest.  My neighbors are stoked about SUP and learning to sail so hopefully we'll eventually have a group there.
