My First SUP !

"A dream is a goal with a deadline"

"Set your mind on a definite goal and observe how quickly the world stands aside to let you pass."

"What the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve"

— Napoleon Hill

I learned a lot about goals and how to achieve them form Napoleon Hill's The Law of Success

When it comes to goals you absolutely MUST know what EXACTLY you want. It was in my 2010 post when I told you that I was going to buy a SUP....

One thing you should know about me...I always achieve my goals...

Finally, paddling my own SUP ! 

I wasn't looking for just any SUP. I knew exactly what I wanted. After having a great time surfing and paddle surfing at Cocoa Beach in Florida, I started looking for a SUP that I could use for paddling, surfing, and windsurfing. Soon enough I found 11'3'' Amundson Aquaglide - extremely versatile all-around board.

Not only did I know what type of board I was looking for, I also knew how much I was willing to pay. With these brand new boards going over $1000 ( and a bag for about $200 ), I paid...$500 for both.

Another reason to buy a SUP was to introduce my 4 y.o to the sport. I have to admit, he wasn't as stoked as  me...

If you've been thinking about buying a SUP, choose wisely

Nowadays, there are a lot to choose from, from cheap plastic boards ( Pelican Flow 106 ) to the top of the line racing boards...

I just hope I won't be one of those people who take their boards out once-twice a year...
