I’ve done a lot of paddling while I was sitting down, but my sweetheart (Carma) has loved doing it standing up. Who am I to argue with someone I love this much. So I was excited. Three hours of sunrise tour standing on a stylized plank, covering numerous kilometers of still morning waters watching the sun come up.
Except it was unusually windy, and typical of the differences between here and our liability conscious homeland, our wonderfully hospitable and knowledgeable and athletic guide grinned and said “let’s go”.
I loved every minute of it. Even falling off in the Black Cenote, because I got cross ways to the 12-18 inch waves. I quickly got back up, but Cesar (our guide) saw I was struggling against the current, so he towed me out. My sweetheart never missed a beat and never fell. She’s amazing!
But even she wants the next one to be a bit smoother!
I still wouldn’t have traded it for anything!
