Haveagoat rising sport By KAROLINE TUCKEY A Paremata man is hoping to encourage more locals to walk his way -- on the water. Stand-up paddleboarding enthusiast and watersports equipment importer Chris Brown is holding a free demon- stration day next week. He says paddleboarding is one of the fastest growing sports in the world and ideally-suited to the Porirua coastline and con- ditions. It can be enjoyed at any age or fitness level. In a modern interpretation of a traditional Hawaiian pastime, paddleboarders stand on a wide stable board and paddle with a long oar. Mr Brown says paddleboards can be used in waves large and small, as well as on flat water, and are very easy to use. It's sometimes called Jesus boarding, because you look like you're walking on water. You can go fishing on them, can go surfing on it, can take the kids on it -- I've had my two kids on it dangling their hands in the water and checking out the stingrays.'' A keen windsurfer, Mr Brown says paddleboarding is a good complementary hobby as it is at its best in low winds. You can surf on anything from a small to a big wave, so you can go out to Plimmerton and ride the small surf, and then there's flat water cruising, which around here's quite good because there's lots of little inlets you can cruise around and check out a different perspec- tive.'' Mr Brown says the boards are ideal to fish from with a trolling line, dive for paua or crayfish, or set a crayfish pot from. When you're paddling around you can see further into the water -- you're standing up and get a good vantage point. It's a really good way to see the area from a different perspective.'' The November 12 demon- stration will be a chance to have a closer look at the sport and give it a go, he says. We'll have the flags out at the Dolly Varden Park, beside the [Paremata] bridge, and there will be plenty of boards and other things to try out.'' Mr Brown says newcomers often take a couple of dips in the water before they master their balance on the board, so he recommends wetsuits, and life jackets for folk who are not water confident.
