Stand-up Paddle Boarding in Raglan

I love to stand-up paddle board.  I’m so glad my friend Barb suggested it a couple of years ago in Mexico.  Since then, I’ve done it several times.  Raglan was a bit different as we were fighting both an outgoing tide and a current.  I still loved it.

I was pretty exhausted from learning to surf earlier in the day, but I was still up for it.  We had our own guide, Donald, for two of us so he was able to give me some pointers.  I learned how to sharply turn a full circle, which trust me sounds much easier than it is.

It didn’t hurt that the day was amazing…great temperature, nice breeze…I can’t think of one thing that would have made it better.
