Laura's cousin, John Putes, introduced SUP to us when we visited Arizona back in April. I must admit, seeing a deflated paddleboard on his hardwood floors left much to the imagination. Fast forward to July and our trip to Hawaii: Laura booked us a couple of lessons and we had a blast! The boards were fiberglass and a little longer than John's inflatable board.

The picture to the left was from earlier this morning at the Marshall County State Conservation Area, which is located north of Hopewell and just south of Sparland.
The water was a little choppy, but it was a beautiful day to be out and active. We did a nice little out-and-back trip as you can see on the map. We only saw a couple of Asian Carp, and no, the ones we did come close to didn't knock us from our boards. I'm still working on the stand up part, but Laura seems to have mastered it! She was born to SUP!
