PADDLEBOARD FATIGUE
Miramar Beach, FL
September 30, 2016

Mary and I were able to spend three straight days on the water with the paddleboards.  The weather was perfect with wave heights less than 1′ during the morning and early afternoon hours.

I shot a ton of video but wasn’t able to use it – I mounted the GoPro on the nose of Mary’s board but had it pointed WAY TOO LOW…4 hours of nothing but ankles and feet.

Well, I was able to pull some good images from the videos along with a short clip of Mary.  After 3 days she was wore out and in this clip she’s used up all of her reserves.

PADDLEBOARD WRECKS
Miramar Beach, FL
September 12, 2016

Our family spent the day on the water enjoying the weather and our time together. The wave heights were less than ideal for paddleboards but we didn’t let that stop us. This video clip below shows Mary, Dad and Avery on the board. The final 20 seconds contains all the best wrecks of the day.  58 seconds of FUN and EXCITEMENT!

SUP @ CAMP GRACE LAKE
Mobile, AL
September 2016

Mary and I grabbed the Stand Up Paddleboards (SUP) and spent the day on the water at Camp Grace Lake. Mary first learned to ride offshore in the Gulf of Mexico and this was her first time paddling on the smooth, flat water of a lake. As you can see in the video, she found it to be pretty easy.  What a GREAT day!
