I'll pass

Am in Devon and I have seen the latest craze on the water.

There is sailing, canoeing, windsurfing, surfing etc. but none of these is the latest thing.

If you want to be hip, cool and down with the kids you need to get into paddle boarding.

What, I hear you ask, is paddle boarding?

Good question. It's good core exercise apparently but looks weird to me.

It's standing on a board that's like a fat, long, wide surf board and paddling with a kayak paddle to get somewhere, or nowhere.


And if this isn't extreme enough for you apparently you can do yoga on your paddle board.

I'll pass, but don't let me stop you.

I have to say, the new craze of paddle boards confuses me to no end. I live relatively close to a lake, and seeing the people on them paddling as a speed boat goes whizzing by gives me a slight heart attack each time.

But who knows, maybe it is the same concept as kayaking and canoeing and I am just not seeing it either.
