The morning is my favorite time to stand up paddle board.

Early in the morning, before the wind picks up, the waters are calm and tranquil.

Time seems to stand still, and the peacefulness is restorative.

Each paddle stroke is clear and crisp. I count my strokes on each side, and this helps me stay focused and present.

I practice tracking, turning, and riding small waves – courtesy of a nearby boater’s wake.

Or sometimes I just stop, sit and let the current tell me where to go.

The morning is my favorite time to be on my SUP because it’s my time on the water.

How about you?
