      Beautiful morning paddle =) Nice to see a few kayakers out on such a nice day too. Went over to the other side of the estuary, did a bit of yoga in the middle since there was almost no wind and practice speeding on my way back. The river was flowing really fast after all that rain from the day before, so strong current and I was going against the tide as well! So great workout overall =)

      Took the kayaks out for a family paddle in the harbour... but my dog decided she likes the paddleboard better and refused to board =D So we ended up splitting up and taking turns paddling out/playing ball on the shore! =D Went from the yacht club to the Lighthouse and back. The weather was absolute rubbish most of the weekend sadly -gale force Southerly and rain/sleet/hail!!!- so no chance to go out early in the morning to find dolphins :'( better luck next time!

      From a couple of weeks back. A nice morning session though quite windy on the way towards the spit, took me forever to get around the corner so turned around and cruised the tide and wind back and went for a wee loop behind the jetty instead. Neat workout and nice the sun came out a little at the end =)

      Gorgeous day today, no wind at all when I left about an hour before high tide, and only slight chops on the way back. Lots of herons by the jetty when I headed out and a couple of shags in the water but otherwise no one else on the water today, everyone must still be up on the slopes :p Tried to do a bit more fitness than usual by paddling at a constant pace and work on speed but the day was so nice I kept stopping to take photos so gave up on that part halfway through and just cruised on the way back =D

      Woohoo back in the water! Getting some muscles out of their hibernation ;) Not the nicest morning at the start, bit choppy & windy when I headed out but once I reached the bridge end the sun made an appearance and the wind died down on my way back which made the return a lot more pleasant (and warm!). Lots of swans around this morning but no one else on the water. So good to get back out! =) Looking forward to longer and hotter days coming back =)

      **not an actual paddle** Gutted to have left the board home that day, but nice to see the usual paddling spot from above on such a sweet winter day (temp got to about 18˚C that day, insane!). Can not believe that no one was out on the water on such a beautiful, windless day and with the tide in as well! Fingers crossed for good weather this weekend to get back on the water!

      Such a beautiful morning when I headed out! Flat as, tide in, no wind, it was just perfect! Left from the jetty and up river into the Avon. Somehow past the bridge I ended up on the wrong side and in a cul-de-sac. So many birds though: gulls, shags, loads of black swans and a whole group of royal spoonbills (gutted my little camera doesn't zoom as they were truly majestic when they all flew off in front of my board!). Met a kayaker on the way back. Of course the wind had to pick up N/E went I was coming down so battled a wee bit to get back in to shore. Looks like summer is still hanging around for a while in NZ =)

      Introducing 3months old puppy Torx to paddle boarding =) A lot easier with another SUP pooch around ;) Both had lots of fun! And the water is still quite warm so that always helps. Great day out on the water!

      Doggy paddle = happy paddle! =) Went early to avoid the scorching heat that we are currently experiencing in NZ (on the plus side the sea water is the warmest it's ever been at around 21˚C!). Nice to see quite a few others out on SUPs/kayaks, probably the busiest I've ever seen Cass Bay. No wind, flat as, gorgeous day (was overcast at first but the sun quickly peeked out =). Didn't go too far as I had my favorite passenger with me but we had a lovely time practising balance, playing aqua-fetch and just paddling around =)

      Not on a SUP for a change, but what an awesome day for it. Hottest weekend of the year so far, 30˚C+ and even though it was super windy, on the water it was still stinking hot! =D Paddled from Children's Bay to Red Point and had a good look on the rocks. Saw lots of little fish in the water at Children's Bay that morning but not so much in the heat of the arvo. No stingray or dolphins either :'( But the water was the clearest I've ever seen in the crater and I really wish that I had my snorkelling gear with me (and that the camera didn't die 5min into the paddle :'(!!! So gutted!!!). Bit of a challenge in that strong wind but good fun surfing the waves in the harbour though I reckon the SUPers we passed on the way out didn't have such a fun time :p Was actually glad to be sitting in and not standing on a SUP for once =D Nice to see more paddlers coming out that way and the rental guy being so busy on such a lovely weekend =)
