7 Year Old SUP - A Natural
Michael Ashley here, checking in from Santa Cruz, with a short video of my son Ethan paddling my Angulo 11'9". Ethan jumped on my board today while we were at the beach and wouldn't get off! Now that's what I call father-son bonding.
I picked up this board, shaped by Ed Angulo, from Andy at Ski Shop Santa Cruz. He has been helping guys in town get into SUB's for a couple years and has a great relationship with Angulo. My board is his 11'9" and I'm super happy with it. At 31 inches wide, it is stable and easy to paddle. I was concerned that the thickness, 4.5", would be a problem when it came to surfing, but it is very responsive and fun.
