It’s 7 am in the morning and the turquoise blue Lac de Sainte-Croix lies calm and beautiful before us. The air is quiet while the sun is already rising behind the mountains. If this isn’t the perfect time to take our Stand Up Paddle Board by Siren SUP* out for a ride…
As we had already filled the board with air the day before, I took it directly on the water. The calm and relaxation that you experience out there is incomparable. This is how holidays feels like! The small sounds of the water, when I dip in with my paddle, is the only thing I can hear. Apart from that: complete stillness.
On the water, I softly paddle forward, faster than expected. The SUP is gliding easily over the water, as if it was the easiest thing in this world. After a while, I return to the shore and take my little dog Rudi on the board as well. First skeptical, he soon finds his liking to sitting at the very tip of the SUP, enjoying the soft wind in his ears. I love this view and take him around the lake a bit more, before returning to the beach.
Completely relaxed and happy, that I could spend the morning on my SUP at the most beautiful lake in France, I return and definitely can’t wait to be back out there.
Because honestly, is there anything more beautiful than turquoise blue water below and turquoise blue skies above me? In this color scheme, my rubio 11.2 PFT i-SUP Board* looked as if it was made for these surroundings. I really hope to be able to be back on the SUP a couple more times this year as there is hardly anything more fun! Oh, only one thing: SUP YOGA! I’ll tell you more about that in another blog post, soon…
Have you ever tried Stand Up Paddling? If you did, how did you like it? And do you own your own SUP? I can’t wait for your comments!
