Stand up paddling, SUP solo 8 miles on West Side, New Years Day, 2013. Seeking a different kind of adventure and solitude.
This was an unexpected paddle as I attempted to catch some of the left over big N swell which got blown out, so I headed West.
I'm paddling the Naish 14ft Glide and using the Kaholo 8.5 full carbon, adjustable paddle, reduced diameter.
The waters were so blue and clear. As I as driving I spotted whales along the coast. Nursing a bad man-o-war sting from the day before, I was ready to see whales and hope for a close encounter.
Well, the whales were miles out but a special little turtle kept me company as I explored. It seemed to really like my board, but I don't know if they see color. Either way it was a great way to ring in the New Year.
This video is dedicated to a special young lady in New Hampshire named Joani.
Aloha and in good health, Suzie Cooney
