I had been wanting to try out SUPing for ages, so when I was back home for Christmas last year, my dad gave me an IOU voucher as part of my Christmas present, thinking I’d get a chance to try out whilst back home for the summer last year. I never got around to using that voucher and lo and behold I actually tried out SUPing this summer in Japan and got hooked.
During my most recent trip home, I redeemed my voucher. Check out my dad’s mad computer skills (Word and google image search).
My dad took me to Balmoral where I SUPed and he kayaked. I got to have my own photographer for the day. He took heaps of photos of me in action. It was crazy windy on that particular day which made SUPing really difficult, and had to weave through all the moored boats. Was not so fun paddling with the wind.
When it’s not windy, Balmoral is incredibly flat. It’s more like a bay. It’s not a surf beach. It’s actually home to a sailing club.
Sydney water is so clean and clear. So beautiful and refreshing.
Lots of action SUP shots:
All that paddling is hard work. Taking a break:
Sydney, Sunshine and Smiles:
On the other side, is the leisure swimming area. Just so happened to be school holidays back home so the place was pretty crowded for a Thursday daytime.
White sand. Blue water. Sunshine. Seriously, get yo arse to Down Under.
Aussies: we’re a hardworking bunch:
SUPing in Sydney is pretty SUPer.
