A year ago when passing through Ft. Myers, FL my wife decided on a whim to rent a paddleboard to take advantage of the glassy water and beautiful sun overhead at Lover’s Key State Park. All through the fall and winter she talked about that experience and how she loved it. By early 2015 she was looking at SUPs on the Internet and talking about investing in one. Truth be told I wasn’t all that game as my first experience was less than stellar and about all I did was entertain the observers on the beach as I sort of stood up, wobbled, and fell. I think I even did ‘the Running Man’ at some point that cause the 10′ board to shoot up into the air and right out from under me.
When we passed through Ft. Myers this past snowbird season though we came across the notion of inflatable SUPs and realized something like that would be perfect for her and our tiny house lifestyle. Minimum space yet maximum fun. This time I was (pardon the pun) on board and we found a well-reviewed board at Costco. For less than $400 we were well on our way to becoming complete beach bums without sacrificing our much coveted space in our tiny house.
So in putting togethers blog post I had an idea. Why not show other tiny housers how much fun SUPing can be and how an inflatable SUP (as well as other toys like inflatable kayaks, frisbee golf, geo-caching, etc) can be perfect recreational activities for the tiny house lifestyle.
