The day was SUPER windy and the rental place highly discouraged us from even attempting because the waves were wild.
But I insisted and they said, "ok, your funeral!" and gave us the you're crazy look.
It was so fun! Brian said it was like riding a bucking horse!
Totally worth the $35 for an hour of fun (and entertainment - for our party on the beach. They got a kick out of watching us paddle around).
