This last weekend I was visiting Austin, TX and it just so happened to be the same weekend we adjust the clocks back to standard time. With the “extra” hour I decided to try Stand Up Paddling (SUP). Relatively an unknown sport in Iowa, it’s quite popular in larger cities, especially those with bodies of water used for recreation. Austin is one of those places and I rented a board for an hour (my extra hour) from the Rowing Dock. I was expecting a balancing challenge, but really it was fairly easy. Maybe the boards come in different size widths? The water was mostly calm and I bet waves would add excitement. Overall, I thought it was pretty fun and would definitely do it again.
