I have never tried the stand up paddling, but it seems to be popular in many places these days.

I saw a lot of those paddle boarders in California last weekend. It's a new sport I don't get.

Lovely to see the ship in the background. I don't think I would be able to balance on those boards in the moving waters!

Cool shot. Love that ship - what a beauty. I've always wanted to try that stand-up paddling bit but haven't had the chance yet.

It is becoming popular here too, but not with that as a backdrop. What a beautiful ship.

What a beautiful ship behind them. I see people using these boards but I haven't tried it myself. Maybe this winter . . .

Looks like fun, but not for me.

Wow, to have such a ship right in front of you where you swim, in the same water!

Paddle surfing! Looks like fun.

I've seen people do this and I marvel at it. I push the shutter button pretty well but that's about the end of my physical talents.

What a marvelous ship with modern day water sports being such a contrast. Terrific!

Looks like it is a tricky sport that requires skill and agility.
