'SUP

After seeing someone paddle boarding at a reservoir in Canmore, AB in the spring, we have wanted to try it. Stand Up Paddle boarding is where you tell jokes to fellow boaters while balancing on a surf board.

OK, so I lied. SUP is actually a type of surfing in which you use a long paddle and a larger than normal surf board to explore the water. The boards are huge and surprisingly stable. Its a fun sport because its quick to learn and doesn't have to be too strenuous.

Here are some pictures from our watery adventures:
