Possibilities. Think of all the big point breaks all over the world that are just calling out to be ridden with the stand up board.I was sent this old clip by a good friend of mine. We scored some really fun surf down there and had a great time- this was about ten years ago, pre-stand up craze- at least for me. But the question keeps popping into my head: What if we had brought stand up boards with us?
Now I'm not saying that I would have used my paddle board for evil purposes. I'd have been run off into the jungle if I decided to poach every bump rifling from Rivermouth to Cantina. But there are other possibilities. You've just got to have the guts to paddle away from the main event. And I'm not just talking about Costa Rican waves here. Every "name spot" has an excellent non-spot right next to it. So paddle away and make your own discovery. I can promise you that just around the corner from that perfect head high wall is another one just begging to be ridden by our big boards. Go get it!
