    This morning, my girlfriend and I were talking about looking into SUP boards for flat spells. I know some (a lot) are not down with SUP use; however, I want to use a stand up for the workout - everyone I talk to say that stand up is a great core workout. Thoughts?

    Right now I'm making a custom cutting board, starting a queen size bed frame with a locker at the foot (black walnut, tiger maple and possibly some sapele accents with a walnut/maple laminated and carved medallion in the headboard), drawing up some plans for a tunnel hull flats skiff I will probably never get around to building and cursing at the dry hay that used to be my green lawn. I have also been doing my normal regimen of fishing, gigging and spear fishing, although not as much as I would like.

    This of course aside from the normal work except my business is slow in the summer = extra boredom.

    SUPs are great, just not in a line up with other surfers.

    hit the beach and daydream about being 3 inches tall catching double over ankle waves...diving, swimming in the pool, bbq-ing, really though, down here the sun and humidity are so bad that a/c is not a bad idea either...lol

    I agree - Yesterday, I almost got cut off by a phantom SUP board; first-timers need to wear their leashes.

    I just want to paddle around the harbor and the river. Trying to get my swole on.

    Anything in the water is good by me... And on a flat day, I'd say its a perfect reason to get in the water and get a workout. I can't believe how popular they have become and so quickly. As other's said, its different if you paddle into a lineup...

    Mountain biking trails or road biking with my all-mountain/DH bike (it's quite a workout...)

    Reading books.

    Watch surf movies...maybe an occasional non-surf movie.

    BBQ'ing, definitely. -Charcoal of course.

    Cutting the lawn/trimming hedges.

    My wife and I were also looking into SUPs for flat days, I would never consider actually trying to surf one of those tanks but it would be cool to just paddle around. They are so damn expensive though, I can't seem to justify spending that much on one. Kayaks are so much cheaper and just as fun I would think.

    I've been skating local concrete parks a lot this summer. Super fun skating the bowls, pretty good cross training for surfing too. Although, it's been way to hot lately. After about an hour of pumping around the bowl I'm beat and drenched in sweat.
