The brilliant Spring weather which Merimbula is famous for has arrived right on cue. SUPers have been coming out of their Winter Hibernation and joining me on the water for some awesome sessions Check out these pictures of some of our latest SUP sessions.
With the stand-up paddle season fast approaching, I have a little story about my SUP session on the Pambula River yesterday morning that may get you inspired to try this amazing sport. As you can see in the image below, the water was like a sheet of glass and crystal clear. As I paddled up river I noticed something large break the surface of the water about 50 metres in front of me. On closer inspection I discovered that it was two dolphins! I was on my 12'6" race board so I was travelling quite fast in these perfect conditions but I just could not catch them. They appeared to be having a ball, I did notice that a couple of times they threw some decent sized fish in the air, so I guessed they must be chasing a school. Finally they slowed down and I caught up to them. As the tide was quite low, the water was shallow, and with out any disturbance on the water at all, it was like looking through a window. Then they appeared darting around checking me out. I just stood there amazed at how clearly I could see them. They were super fast and incredibly agile. They started to circle around me so I thought I would join in their game and paddle around in a circle with them. I definitely felt like the uncoordinated kid struggling around on my big board and they moved with such ease, flying around sort of on their side looking at me and then they would shoot up and break the surface every now and then. We did a couple of circuits and then they disappeared from sight. I continued on up river in a kind of a daze. How many people are lucky enough to experience that on a lazy Friday morning. Truly special, Truly spoilt!
Well, our Winter holiday is all over! It's a bit sad really but we had a great time. I think it was the best trip away we have ever had! Everything just came together perfectly, the surf was pumping, and all of the family just had a great time. So, now that we are back it is time to start thinking Spring and Summer! We are really pumped and can't wait to kick off this season of SUP sessions and Pre-Christmas SUP board sales. We are also planning to add some cool new things to our list of offerings, so watch this space! Anyway, here's some pics from our Bali holiday. Enjoy.
It was the first of July yesterday and I had some very keen guests from Canberra who were keen on a mid-winter lesson! The breeze was from the west which was quite chilly, but the winter sun shone over us and we had a great time. Anytime of the year is the perfect time to enjoy Merimbula!
