Re: Bob's Bits.

Oh, those little showers can really clean up the surf and make the waves glassy - my favorite kind of surf. I might just have to put Scarborough on the surfing "to do" list.

I do some paddle boarding too when the surf is small and glassy, and highly recommend it for any age. If any of you ever get the opportunity to take a lesson and give it a go - please do! It's very fun. The best way is to start on your knees for a while and then try stand up. It's much more stable than surfing and the paddle is easy to maneuver.

I hope the trip back is even more enjoyable than the trip there, OGF. Thanks for the tour!

Re: Bob's Bits.

The Caribbean is an excellent place to learn, Bob. When I was in Barbados in February, the conditions were perfect - warm and calm. If you are booking an excursion early, try to go early in the day before the winds pick up.

When you get closer to travel, we can talk about a few tips that will help you get the knack of it in no time. There are some good videos on youtube that will get you started and are worth watching.

I'm thrilled you are giving paddleboarding a go! Once you get that down, we will get you on a surfboard yet!

Yay!

Re: Bob's Bits.

Give me a board and a paddle and I'll be off like a duck on speed...

Especially if I want to catch these little beauties......



Which one is you Surfermom?.....

I was hoping for a restful day today after my early morning run, I forgot I had to take down the Christmas decorations today......
