Riviera Surf Sup – 11’6” 33” – Color – Rust and Silver
First Step – Tyler puts some Oregon Surf Shop love on the top and bottom.
Next Step – Load it up in the truck. Nate used his Birthday Oregon Surf Shop Gift Card from a friend to buy me some new straps. No more crazy garage tie downs. We’re Legit.
That’s one happy Oregon Surf Shop Boy. He’s happy for me!
Weird Surf Team Photographer – and a coach giving him a look. Jon gets that look a lot.
Step Three – Beat mom to the water while she puts on her life jacket and booties.
We had several colors to choose from. Quite a few friends purchased boards last year. It was between Magenta/Pink and Rust/Silver. Since Nate wants this as badly as I do – we both went with Rust / Silver. It’s beautiful. With the R’s all over – and my friend’s husband is named – “Big R” – we went with . . . . . . .. Rusty. Rusty – meet the blog readers. Blog Readers – Meet Rusty.
When you call, text, email, msg, or stop by – you’ll know where to find me.
In SUP Heaven.
Last year in June, my boys officially decided they forever wanted to be Surfers. This mom has since spent a lot of hours at the beach and on the water. A year and a half ago I was on a SUP, on my knees, for the first time. I really didn’t think I’d ever get it. A few months later I gave it a good effort to figure it out. Last summer, it was my desire to officially be a SUP’er. I practiced for hours. For some reason, it took me a WHOLE lot more struggle to balance and get the stroke than the average joe. Last weekend a couple of girlfriends and I SUP’d 6 miles in an hour and a half while leisurely chatting away at a slow pace. My goal has been to officially be a Water Dog Mom. A friend made a comment a couple of years ago – when I was being wimpy – “Well, ya want to be a water dog mom – then ya gotta do it”. I’m the mom of Jon – the waterest dog of them all.
