150.2 Paddle Surfing

Here is another paddle surfing photo from the Coeur d'Alene Resort on monday. This one is just a little kid. I had seen wind surfing before, but not paddle surfing. There was enough wind this day that they could have wind surfed. Paddle surfing looks more difficult, if you ask me.

I looked around the web, and people actually paddle surf the waves in the ocean, too. Wow. At this lake they just paddle around, and that looks tough enough all on its own. Oh wow, here, I found a video!



This paddle surfing instruction video details how to paddle out to waves and catch them on a paddle board. Paddle out straight, not sideways, or you will capsize. Once you are out, point your board the direction you want to go. If you miss a wave, lower yourself to avoid being knocked off the board. It shows neutral foot position vs surfing foot position and how to paddle as you catch the wave. Very informative.

I lost .6 pounds yesterday. For exercise we walked the dogs a mile in the park. Here is what I ate:

Small bowl of Special K and organic soy milk
Raw baby carrots
Hamburger patty, BBQ sauce, steamed broccoli
1 leftover steak fajita burrito with a little leftover sour cream
1/4 cup peanut M&Ms
Raw baby carrots
Thick slice of cheddar cheese
Three corn tortilla chips
