Being the good husband I am (this is where everyone chuckles). I see last weekend this car loaded down with these giant flat foam board things and keep my eye on the vehicle so when the owner comes by I can ask him about them. He also had two kayaks sticking out the back so this guy new about water sports. When I catch up to him he lets me know the board as seen above are called "Paddlebuoy" boards. They run in the 200 dollar range and have a steel frame system in them to keep from being torn up. There were about a million light bulbs going off in my head. How cool is this, a cheap practical alternative to paddle boards but it still does the same thing.
I get home from the weekends festivities and was so excited to tell my wife about this alternative form of paddle boarding. She looked them up on the web and lets just say she was less enthusiastic than I was. Not sure if this is the kiddie model to paddle boarding or just that she wants the real deal. I have never been or seen paddleboarding so I am not sure if this was an insult to the paddle boarding community. Well it is still on for that elusive paddle board for the wife. Let me know if you have one and lets make a deal!
