More likely to have been Hillhead rather than Stokes bay waiting for enough wind to get onto the plane in my case. Think that was when the ‘need a van’ seed was sown.That the boy! Many a day spent at Stokes Bay, waiting for the wind. About 40 year ago!
My partner took a while to get used to it. I read somewhere that the male brain needs around 30 hours on the board and longer if you are on the heavy side, whilst a female brain can commit the muscle memory and balance almost immediately. I don’t know how true it is though.Tried SUP whilst on holiday last week. Barcelona region, hired one off the beach.
Blooming heck, it’s hard work!
My other half was a natural at it, never fell off once. But I wobbled and wobbled before falling off again! My best effort was 4 mins without falling off.
Sure trying to learn whilst being having waves didn’t help, but I was quite useless it has to be said! Wouldn’t mind another go, but in a lake next time.
As most of the hour I had was spent off the board, trying to get back on, it will take me some time to get to a whole 30 hours on the board!!I read somewhere that the male brain needs around 30 hours on the board and longer if you are on the heavy side,
I did actually quite enjoy the experience, or at least the thought of it, so will give it another go. The promise of pubs is all the motivation I need!!Persevere with it, and practice on canals if you can. Apart from bring good beginner spots with no waves, they usually have pubs!
