The surf club is a fun place with lots of dedicated people, trying to get more people into surfing..
They held a small Sup competionth other day. We all started in heats and surfed in a knock out format round a small course.
We all used the same material: Bic inflatable 11 foot SUP and a standard alu vario padlle. It was my first time surfing an inflatable and I wasn't impressed, a very wobbly feeling and you didn't have the feeling of gliding because much of the power was lost due to the board flexing. A lot of the same can be said about the vario paddle.
But equally badly equipped, we all had fun battling out one heat after another..
The weather was ok ( meaning no rain) and we enjoyed dinner, picnic style in between heats with our families.
A big thank you to the organizers..
