I think I have had that before when I wrote a long post, or got interrupted in the middle of it so it took a while, I think it happens if you take to long.

If you take a while to post, copy it first, in case it disappears then at least you can paste and post.

I recommend extensions to the browser that saves what you are typing, such as:
addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/textarea-cache/

They are invaluable.

There seems to exist also for chrome:

First try again...Friday was my first try at paddle boarding, what an exhibition I put on for spectators. 69 years crazy. Kneeling was a piece of cake, 'got this down easy' I thought. hells bells and little green apples Ive now discovered muscles that should have died. 48 hours later calf muscles still giving me curry.

And as for this standing up lark with feet flat on the board....Oh FFS dont be stupid dang and shoit how you supposed to do that. Ive always used the balls of me feet... to be continues

Tonz, Four months ago I started paddling. Today was my 60th paddle. It gets better. Today I paddled in beam seas of 1-3ft bay chop. 4 months ago I stupidly tried to do the same thing, fell every 10 feet, and nearly washed up on a jetty.
I think I read somewhere on this forum that with sup, falling is learning and I have had some days where Iearned a lot.??
When I start getting super frustrated I remind myself that falling is a part of SUP. I love being on the water and look forward to getting better and I hope you find the same enjoyment as I do. ??
