Stand Up Paddleboard, in case you aren't familiar with the abbreviation. It's basically a twelve foot long surfboard, wide and thick for stability. You stand on it and paddle it with a single bladed paddle. I've been thinking about getting one for a while given the distinct lack of surf anywhere near where I live and I finally pulled the trigger.
It is huge. I didn't consciously think about how big a twelve foot board would be until I was trying to move it into my house from the rack on my car. It won't go around the corner into the front porch and it won't go around the corner into the living room. That left lying on the floor of the front hall, making it pretty much impassable (including getting upstairs to use the bathroom and the bedroom) or standing it up in the stairwell.
So I actually bought this over a month ago, maybe even closer to two. Since then when it hasn't been wind storming it has been torrentially pouring. When it wasn't torrentially pouring it was freezing cold. And when it wasn't freezing cold, torrentially pouring, or wind storming I was having a hernia repaired. Meanwhile the post, like the board, languished.
I'm really looking forward to getting out on it, but at this point it probably won't be til April.
