think a decent inflatable one is like £400 though. apparently the crap inflatable ones don’t get high enough pressure and can sag in the middle. the all fold up pretty small, like a medium size tent

at some point i plan on buying a few and fully embracing the water life

I’m not going Milton Keynes. Sick park at Amersham that you’ll love

Not into boat shoes.

I did it once in the Caribbean and was hungover, it was shit.

Am going to try it on the lake this morning.

I’m sure it will be shit.

Re SUP’ers: As someone who is somewhat of a waterman I can’t help feeling a certain way about them and there’s an analogy I can use that I think you’ll all relate to - remember when rollerbladers flooded our spots and skateparks, then it was scooter kids…

Well that general look.

I like a driving shoe in the summer haha.

As a shortboarding skateboarder and 100% no compromise short boarding surfer regardless of how heavy I get in middle age, I stand completely in solidarity with what you’re getting at.

I don’t really mess with freshwater apart from the stuff that comes out of my taps. So an acceptable ‘lake activity’ for me would be sitting in one of these

whilst operating one of these

I bought a paddleboard. Quickly figured out that the only good way to use it is as a floating sun lounger. Paddling out and reading in the middle of a lake is pretty relaxing.
