Recently I went paddle boarding with a couple other blogging babes (from left to right, Keara from Modest Style, me, Sandy from Sandyalamode, and Jen from Elevate Everyday, there were others there, but they are not pictured!). We went to a local Utah lake and were able to experience Nomad Paddle Board Rentals!
Paddle boarding is not something I have ever done, so I was nervous at first that I would lose my balance and fall right it. It turns out, it is easier than it looks! When we first got there, I helped pump up the boards (did you know that they are inflatable? I had no idea that they were soft boards). We hung around for a while so that others could get there (Utah time is a real thing, almost everyone showed up an hour late. I need to stop being so punctual!), and then Hali and Sara taught us how to get on and practice. After about five minutes, we were up and moving.
I was pleasantly surprised that the paddle boarding gave my foot a work out. If you have been following my blog along, you may know that I have had multiple foot surgeries. My right foot never healed properly, so somethings are harder than others. It was awesome that balancing on the board was able to do a little bit of rehab on the healing foot! Also, surprise, I didn't fall in or even need to get my hair wet.
