Happiness Is...

Happiness is a lot of things to a lot of different people...

To some folks happiness is "a little bit of chicken fried...cold beer on a Friday night...pair of jeans that fit just right...and the radio up..."

Zac Brown wrote that puppy along with some other tunes on his record "The Foundation", that earned him and his band, Zac Brown Band, a recent Grammy for "Best New Artist"...

We're hooked up with front row tickets when the band visits Santa Barbara on March 17th at the Arlington Theatre...yeehaw!!!

Speaking of brown and happiness...our chocolate Labrador Retrievers, Annie Mae and Molly Claire, exude happiness...especially, when they are outdoors on a sunny, beautiful day like yesterday...



There's some chocolate goodness available from one of our windsurfing clients who is a Labrador breeder...she has bred a lab who is related to Annie...these labs have really sweet dispositions...two females and a male are left...5 weeks old...



Charles Schulz was on to something when he wrote "Happiness is a warm puppy."

Those puppies are sure to bring waves of happiness to somebody(s)...

Segueing off of waves of happiness (I reckon this is a surfing sports blog afterall...;-) yesterday brought yet another swell into the SB Channel...not the cleanest wave conditions with one storm passing, and another lined up for Tuesday/Wednesday...and, yet more rainy WEATHER on the weekend...but, it was fun and uncrowded...and, the surfers that were out had great attitudes...could it be that surfers are finally starting to reach the wave saturation point after a couple of drought years?...

Stoked Kids in our Candy Store

Standup paddling is a lifestyle...it's a life transformational sport/activity that's as good for your mind...as it is for your body, heart, and soul...

We often refer to standup as "yoga on water"...

We pride ourselves on having the best selection of standup paddleboards at the best prices with the best service...leave it to us to ensure that your purchase is optimized for VALUE and QUALITY...we'll get your STOKE factor in the red zone...and keep it there...

Here's a few of our SUP's on display...our warehouses are full of the best SUP's on the planet, just waiting to be adopted...









Over the weekend, we helped quite a few folks with their SUP and paddle adoptions...;-)

Here's Dani and Colleen...just a few of the fresh wahine faces that will be seen paddling in our local waters...





These women are pretty kewl...lots of impressive accomplishments in their young lives...and, now they are immersed in standup paddling...we welcome them into our ohana...

All of our SUP's are light, strong, and they have handles...which allows our female clients like these two, and many others that you've been introduced to on this blog, to simply strap their board on their truck and go paddling...no big thang...

We love getting phone and email customer testimonials from you guys...from time to time we also receive awesome hand written notes...here's one from Colorado that we returned home to after our trip out to Utah and back...



Todd and Kass picked up a couple of SUP's on their visit to Santa Barbara...after their vacation, they dropped them off and we packed them up and sent them out to their Boulder, Colorado home...

HEAT WAVE!!!

PHEW!!!
HOT...HOT...HOT...here we are in the middle of another heat wave in January...

PERFECT standup paddling weather...'sposed to be HOT & GLASSY for the next 4-5 days...



Our friend Woody came down from Lompoc today to slide a few and try out the latest offerings from Starboard...

Woody is from Hawaii and just exudes the aloha spirit...he's easily one of the top paddlesurfers in Cali...wins most of the Fireman surf contests he enters...it's pretty amazing how many fireman SUP clients we have...;-)

Anyways...we tracked down a clean little peak to ride the new quad 8'5" "Pocket Rocket" and the new quad +1 9'0" "Stinger"...









These new Starboard rippers are setting the standard of performance in shortboard standup paddlesurfing...they are the most durable and lightweight SUP's on the market...built-in handles...stable...maneuverable...awesome performance...

Here's a GALLERY with a few more pics...
