Today I sailed at the Secret Spot, lit on a 5.3 Super style and the RRD Wave Cult 90.
The wave cult 90 performed great as a bump and jump board. The NW winds where super gusty, and she planed up nice an quick, easily handling the lulls. Gybing off of the outside swell was sooo much fun..
....and despite my assurances to myself that I would take it nice and easy today and not jump that much, I did blast some pretty high aeriel's. The 90 felt great in the air
If you always sail at your same spot, you'll never know what you're missing..
Every now and them, step out on faith and try a new spot
Wrap up to another awesome day of sailing on the Delmarva
Got out again today, this time down at Tower Road.. Not really all that windy....but.....any day of sailing is a great day of sailing....
clew first-switch stance-sup sailing
We've had several consecutive days with temps in the 70s. The water temperature at the shallow water venues closely parallel the air temps, so it doesn't take much to get the water temps back up into board short territory
Looks like we have several more days of sailable conditions, especially tomorrow.
Stoked cuz I have a new Wave Cult and a Wave Thruster arriving tomorrow.
Sam, can you make it out? I think the North end of the inlet tomorrow afternoon may be the call...
I was just standing there, allowing the wind to blow me accros the pond, when I noticed this turtle floating out in front of my board, checking me out. As I brought the camera to bear, I startled him and he dove for cover under the bed of see grass. Can you see him there off to the right? He was diving for cover..

so many ponds, canals, rivers to explore by SUP here in Delaware
Water is very clear this time of year. From the standup perspective, you're at the perfect vantage point to really check things out and get up close to nature
the water depth here is about 5 feet
I love saw grass
Come out and try one of our eco-tours... Our latest eco-tour is the Oyster Rocks to Milton Paddle. A 10 mile guided paddle down the lazy Broadkill river, ending up in Milton for lunch and perhaps a tour of historic Milton.
