Broke out the Christmas gift for the first time. Thanks Mom and Dad!!! Lori and I combined the money we got from y'all to get this. We've wanted one for years so we finally went for it!
It started with a few pleasant test-runs where we stayed near the shore with a hill blocking the wind. One time though I got carried away and a little ambitious exposing myself to strong gusts as I attempted to reach an island (never did btw). Evelyn and I ended up way far out by the wind pushing us. I was kinda scared I'd never make it back. Fought the wind and waves, nearly falling at one point. I resisted panicking. Lori said she thought we were just out there having a good ol fun time. I was legit getting the feeling of being hopelessly lost at sea. Haha eventually after extremely tired arms and a rattled mind I made it back to shore. 'Twas an epic day. We'll know better next time what we can handle. 😅🤘🌊 #standuppaddleboard#familygift#watertime#newtoy#chillvibes
