      Perfect Father's Day gift: a bit of time out on the board early on a Sunday. It was like a mill pond. Hot (for here), with a slight breeze. Another father came along too, and it was his first time under the pier.

      Very chill. Love this SUP thing...

      Took advantage of a windless Tuesday evening for a paddle with a friend...Tide was waaaaay out so we had to hump the boards for what seemed like 1/2 a mile across exposed rock (thank God for kevlar booties). But once out on the water, it was magnificent. There is a certain quality to the light here in West Sussex in the evening that I haven't seen anywhere else, and I'm afraid my phone will not do it justice...

      A gentle paddle, loads of fun, and there were a few moments where we just sat on our boards and just appreciated the silence, occasionally punctuated by water lapping against the bottom of the boards

      Evening barbecue on the beach, so only a brief one. Loving the new board, very smooth compared to the all-rounder. Loving this SUP thing...

      First day out with the new Red 13'2 Explorer+. A nice little upgrade - it goes pretty well. And now that we have two boards, I can take my oldest out with me.

      Just a short paddle, beginning with a heavy mist that soon blew away. Loads of fun, despite the brevity of the paddle.

      Able to get out early-ish today for the second time since the year started. As usual, out of shape...But had a nice paddle regardless. It is so nice being out on the water. I love this SUP thing.

      Beautiful day. The temperature in the car said it was 5 degrees (C) out, but the sun was beating down. Put in near Sea Lan Cafe, and made it almost to the Bluebird Cafe before I turned around. Thought I'd paddle against the current on my way out, but it turns out I was paddling with it, Doh!

      It was a slog to get back, like paddling through treacle. But what a nice work out and I couldn't have picked a nicer day. I need a nap. Also, fat boy needs to lose a few more pounds because I couldn't get my wetsuit off without help from my wife later.

      First time out in the winter wetsuit, grey day but gentle swells with a smallish shore dump. Started paddling west, but realised I was moving faster than usual, so turned around to paddle into the current. About 30 minutes travelling east against the current, with my return to where I put in being about 5 minutes. Never underestimate the power of the current, and just because the waves point one way, doesn't mean the current will go the same way. It took about 5 minutes to peel off the winter suit though. :-). Love this SUP thing.

      Despite what both Windguru and Accuweather was saying (12kt wind with 16kt gusts), it was a relatively calm morning, very little wind, gentle incoming swell. Caught a rainbow at the halfway point of this trip, and eventually saw it end about 20 feet away from me on the water as I paddled back (not a leprechaun in sight). The raincloud that generated the rainbow eventually caught up with me and provided a refreshing, gentle shower. Then I managed to catch a couple of bumps on the way back.

      Amazing how cleansing getting out for a paddle can be for the soul.

      I love this SUP thing.

      An excellent, unhurried trip. Beautiful morning, gentle current. Crossed under the pier twice, overall, not a bad day. Love this SUP thing...

      Lovely evening spent with Active360 taking in t he sights of Paddington Basin and Little Venice. Looks like one of the few perks of staying up here in the Smoke during the week.

      Got to ride a Naish One for the first time, and although it was a bit tippier than what I'm used to, really enjoyed how fast it can go. That took a bit of getting used to when it came to avoiding the walls of the Basin and the canals; had to do a lot of back-paddling to stop me from ramming the sides or other SUPpers. Loving this SUP thing.

      Got some much needed daddy/daughter paddle time in with the oldest today. very calm waters and just a chill back-and-forth at Worthing, crossing under the pier twice.

      No seals this morning...But got a good session in nonetheless, paddling against a gentle-ish current and breeze on the way out on an overcast day. 30 minutes out, 20 minutes back, so not too bad. Definitely needed it after the week I've had. Lovin' this SUP thing.

      What an awesome day...Had a seal follow me and play with me for a bit. A very pleasant surprise. Nice calm waters, just a slight swell from the incoming tide, gentle breeze, farthest I've been able to go this year in Worthing. SUP season is underway! I love this SUP thing...

      By the way, it seems on my last few sessions that whenever I turn around to come back the other direction, the app stops tracking. Is that by design or is it my phone?
