You guys, I finally did it. I finally tried stand up paddle boarding.
I know, I know. You’re a native Austinite and you haven’t trip SUP until now?! Cue the are you even a real Austinite hipster police. I get it, okay. All you Californian’s and people moving in have done a lot of the cool hip things in Austin and I’m just slow to catch up. This is what happens when you work, study, and have a million other things going on. I’m a procrastinator.
Anyway, so yes, I finally tried SUP a couple of weeks ago and I loved it! As a girl missing her beachfront flat in Bondi, the evenings spent surfing after work, I miss being out on the water. And while SUP isn’t quite like surfing, it’s still fun. Not to mention, much easier.
My brothers took me out for my birthday at Town Lake and Ah, you guys, it couldn’t have been better. I’ve already been a second time, in fact, I loved it that much. The water at Town Lake right now is beautiful and it’s still cool enough that you don’t immediately have to jump in the water, though you totally can if you want.
I highly recommend everyone to try it out at least once. It’s like an Austin thing now, right? It’s what all of the cool kids are doing. Either way, summer is coming up and it’s a great way to get in shape and beat the heat.
