While things were a bit slow this afternoon my manager, Scott Foster, and I decided to go over to the ocean and get some pics of our new SUPs in action.  We hadn’t taken the inflatable SUP in the waves yet so we wanted to see how it would respond.  Scott caught his first wave ever on a SUP using the Starboard Big Easy and did a nice job going down the line, something I haven’t caught on yet.

The on-shore breeze was making it a little bumpy but the water was warm and the waves were fun.  We then ventured out on the Sevylor Samoa.  It was a bit more tippy but we were still able to float on it nicely.  That’s probably because it’s filled with air, duh.  The waves we were trying to ride were probably a little big for the Samoa (waist high) and the board wanted to nosedive a bit.  Next time I’ll try to find a cleaner day with knee high waves and I’m sure I’ll get waaayyy back on the tail to keep the nose up.

It’s always a good day when you get on the water.
