      Trying out the Bote Traveler. Unfortunately thunderstorms shortens the session. Redneck beach is a nice starting point though to paddle to crab island during the weekend when it turns in to a party place with a lot of boats. Otherwise you can paddle along the shore line of Okalosa Island and encounter local wildlife. Reminder though, the parking spot south of the bridge is Air Force property. A permit is required and available through eglin.isportsman.net

      Grayton Beach is a coastal community, west of Panama City Florida at the Gulf of Mexico. Western Lake is actually a set of lakes on the east side of Grayton beach and part of Grayton Beach State Park ($5 dollar entry fee). You can access the lake from both the State park, boat ramp or the ramp in Grayton Beach. Last one has limited parking space, especially during high season. From the Grayton Beach boat ramp you can paddle both the lakes and go on the Gulf. The waterway to the gulf can be shallow to dry so hand lifting your board can be necessary. The crabs we've seen are on the shallow water way to the gulf. On the Gulf, with some luck, you can see dolphins, turtles, stingrays and even sharks. During our paddle we only saw turtles and dolphins. Epic spot to paddle both inland as well as on the Gulf.

      Exploring the shore line of Patuxent river. Staying sheltered from the wind resulted in a relaxed paddle allowing to spot some birds like a bold eagle.
      Again I rented boards from MWR at PAX like the previous day.

      Added on Tue, 15 May 2018 02:53:16 +0000

      Excellent board for all kinds of water.
      Ideal for fishing or exploring the unknown waters.
      Its an easy travel mate (also by plane) and requires less storage space.

      Pumping it up to 12 to 15 PSI requires some work but can be a nice warm up. You do not want to go lower than 12 psi.
      It will lose strength making the paddle trip a bit harder.

      Board paddles good. Is sturdy and can endure a lot ranging from submerged trees, rocks, etc.
      Because its higher on the water it also " drifts" off your preferred course easeliy during strong winds.
      Surfing in the waves requires technique but I would stay on flat water with this one.
      The board came with a dry bag, paddle (in 3 pieces), a pump and repair kit.

      The board can hold a load of up to 350lbs/160kg.
      It has front and rear bungees for storage.
      You can install 2 adapters on the rear side that can hold a tackle rack to store your fishing rods. There are also 2 metal rings that can be used to secure a cooler.
      A multi purpose board with nice color scheme.


      Board used for : Allround

      Together with some colleagues we rented boards at MWR of NAS Patuxent river ($10/3hrs). It was a bit foggy so no wind.
      I introduced my colleagues in a nice paddle on the bay end some side arms that are a bit sheltered.

      Exploring the Solomons. I rented a SUP from Bunky's Charter Boats ($25/hr) on Solomons Island. Did a quick lap through the marina. The SUP comes with an adjustable paddle, leach and PFD. I brought my own drybag. Bunky's can only provide ziplocks. You start paddeling from the back of the rental company into the marina. There is plenty water to paddle around. Watching boats and nice houses. I paddled to the Marine museum where you can see a lighthouse.
      Sidenote, parking you car is free but can be a bit challenging. Public restrooms are nearby.

      Checking out the Brisbane area we found Bay Island Paddleboards in Raby Bay Foreshore Park.
      They rent out boards for a fair price, $ausd25 per hour. After your paddle session you can join the espresso bar next to the SUP rental. From the park you can paddle to the north west along our through trees that grow in the water.
      A bit of a mangrove feel from what I experienced couple years ago at the Floriday Keys at Marathon Key.
      After that you can cruise through the local harbor and enjoy beautiful houses and boats of the Aussie rich and famous.
      In the park is plenty free parking space, a restroom building with fresh showers and several beaches to launch from.
      When you are lucky you might see some wild life during your paddle session ranging from dolphins, turtles or other animals.

      Browsing the Sydney harbor area for SUP rentals we found WATSSUP. This company provides pre booked tours from resp. Watsons Bay but a also other locations.
      We met Terry McDermott who by coincidence had a cancellation and was willing to show us around. Terry is a retired Bondi Beach Lifeguard (also know from the TV series Bondi rescue) and knows the place very well. From where we started you can park your car for free. Sydney can be expensive parkingwise. At the start location you can use restrooms or grab a after SUP bite. We started from the beach, north of the ferry terminal. Be cautious about the ferries! Besidies that the water is quiet and provides an awesome paddle scenery with Sydney in the background. We just did a small lap of an hour but you can do more if you want.
      Check the website of WHATSSUP for more details. For us a place to come back when possible.
