Stand-Up Pattle Board?

Yup - did it in San Diego, Maui and, just recently, off the south coast of the Indian Ocean with no land in sight.

Yes, I've never tried, but my wife just bought one. She tried it in Brazil & Colombia & fell in love with it

We're going to the Okanagan this weekend, but I'm pretty sure the lake won't be warm enough without a wetsuit

I have one and I love it. Quite a few people on the west coast have them. I also have a kayak. You're right, the water is still very cold right now so have the suit on.

Where in OK are you going CTS?

Nice.

I haven't been able to make my way there this year. Over the next 4 months I'll be there 3 or 4 times at the very least. 

For those who haven't been to Kelowna it's a must visit at least once in your life, preferably in the summer.

We used to vacation in Kelowna in the summer - it was always a bit bittersweet as much rich ass Jewish friends were flying off the Hawaii. On the other hand, at least it wasn't gassing up the Wagon to head to Regina to visit mom's side of the family (which was most summers).

My brother lives there now - for the last few years after spending about 20 years in Vancouver.

You clarification on the post above. Instead of "preferably" in the summer, it should read "exclusively" in the summer.

We have one at the lake. A very peaceful way to tool around on the water. Good core workout too.

We have the perfect place for one as there are many little inlets and bays and it never gets all that rough.

My wife bought one and loves it. I have not tried it yet. She has to be careful though.....Lake Huron can get stirred up in a hurry.

I have a couple of the inflatable ones that we can pack up and bring with us if we are going to be near a lake. I also have a lake in our community that they are fun to take the boys out on a jump off of.

If you can get on it from a dock, you likely won't need a suit. They're pretty stable and easy to maneuver. I don't think I've ever fallen off one.

Ya that's what my wife bought, but she thought it was small & compact when deflated. It's anything but! When the board is deflated & packed up in the back pack, the case is about the size of a full size suitcase.

She wants to take it to Russia when we go next month, but we'll have to take 1 less suitcase in order to do that. Takes up a lot of space

The first time I went on one was in some bay in San Diego.

Got quite far out from the shore when I realized by blackberry was in my pocket - my heart sunk. I took out the battery and kneeled (as opposed to stood) on the paddle board and very very carefully made my way back to shore without incident.

I agree, they are pretty stable but "if the seas are rough that day"......
