Glassy calm Saturday SUP

Plimmerton, Wellington
Stand Up Paddle Boarding: Just Cruising
11 am - 2 pm Saturday. September 5. 2009
my rating 5 star rating
Wind Direction: W Wind Strength: glassy Swell Direction: SW Swell Size: nonexistent Tide: High - Rising.

Finally woke up and was greeted with an amazing morning. Not a cloud in the sky and glassy calm. Looked like a perfect SUP day.

Gave Diggers a call and he was already on his way out so I scoffed a few more of the yummy Fathers Day cookies the kids made me and bolted out the door.

Got down to Plimi and Diggers was cruising up and down the beach about 50m out, the water looked amazingly calm.

I geared up and we headed out. It was looking like a stunning day and there were loads of people out on canoes, yachts, outriggers, boats, jetskis and more.... a real playground and everyone was making the most of the weather.

We headed out to the reef islands as a warm up then headed South towards T-Bay... the cruise along the coast was awesome as we paddled in and around massive rocks the dropped straight into the depths. There were folks along the rugged coast rock climbing the HUGE looming cliffs and others diving for sea critters (looks like a good area if you time the weather right).

Got to T-bay and briefly meet up with another SUPer as he headed out from the beach. Had a bit of a chat and he mentioned he paddled to Mana Island a few months back...timed it wrong and ran out of sunlight.

Sounds like its a totally doable trip.

We turned around and headed back along the coast, exploring various reefs and spots that we might be able to windsurf.

Overall a primo way to spend the day. A great way to get some exercise, some fresh air and have a good chat about all sorts of stuff...

6 thumbs up!
