at the age of 60+ Ive decided sitting on my proverbial is not helping with fitness, so Iam thinking of paddle boarding...why? well we have a bloody big semi safe harbour/bay here, there is a business that does hiring of boards and training. seems pretty cool thing to do..if you can keep from falling off.

Am I stupid? crazy? need of a physiatrist ? your thoughts please.

Nah, not crazy.... although there is no guarantee you wont go crazy once you get into it!!

60+ is still a spring chicken... and you will be feeling 50+ in no time!! Yeeew!!

You will love it so go for it, age is no barrier and a lot of us here are no spring chickens.

Go for it - but find a nice stable board to start off on: 10' and 34" wide and get into it!
