How is my SUP fishing life going?

How is my SUP fishing life going?
Aug 29 2022

The first time I tried fishing was when I was in college. As soon as I entered the school, everyone in the circle decided to go on a short excursion, and fishing was included as one of the activities. It's called Embankment Fishing, where you throw a lure from the land and aim for fish. My first experience of fishing was surprisingly enjoyable and I managed to catch five small fish while many people failed to catch a single fish.

Several decades have passed since then, and now I'm trying to fish with a SUP board. What's excellent about sup boards is that you can move freely. If you use a boat, you need various qualifications, and above all, you need a boat. With SUP boarding, you don't have to deal with those difficulties, all you need is a SUP board. You don't even have an engine on board and you can move freely on the water without the need for qualifications.

It begins

Well, the morning I packed up early and headed out to the sea. It's hot those days, the sun rises early, and my wake-up time is getting earlier and earlier. However, driving early in the morning can make you feel better, the chilly breeze will lift your spirits. 

When I arrive at the beach, I get on my SUP board and feel as if I am the only one on the planet. The reality of being confronted by nature also gives me a sense of almightiness. Swaying alone in the sea on a SUP board, it feels like you're fighting against nature. 

But, this all-purpose feeling quickly disappears when I struggle with the fish. I can't catch them well, they run away. In the end, I didn't catch a single fish that day. The feeling of almightiness is now long gone, and on the car ride home, despair and frustration take over. What a waste of a day...

Make a Practice Group

Nevertheless, the next week, and the week after that, I still went fishing alone. By the way, you can buy sup boards online at WOWSEA. I practiced alone and of course, went fishing alone. When you ride a sup board, you can feel the confrontation with nature, the battle against nature. It is a true state of isolation. I feel as if I am the only one there. 

However, I felt that there was a limit to how much I could acquire, so I decided to make a practice group. Instead, it is better to learn from those who have the skills. I decided to put myself in an unfamiliar environment because I thought it was training. 

Of course, at first, I found it hard to do a lot of things. We have arbitrarily decided that fishing areas and departure times must be adjusted to suit everyone, no freedom. After all, I have always done it by myself, and I am very resistant to being disturbed by others.

But guess what? After a year, I realized that fishing with friends is more fun than fishing alone; it is more reassuring to face nature together than to face it alone. Everyone will be happy if you succeed in fishing successfully. And I was sincerely pleased with the success of my companions. Originally, the SUP board I was riding to get my satisfaction. Now, I enjoy sharing experiences and joy with my friends. Someday, I want to participate in the events of WOWSEA and Japan SUP Promotion Association (SUPA). 


Enjoy my SUP fishing life


I also feel that my own facial expression has softened. More and more people tell me that my aura has changed. Apparently, I used to spend a lot of time with a Buddha's face. The feeling is really in line with WOWSEA's slogan: Love Enjoy My Lifestyle. Of course, I still have a longing to fight on my own - it's cool to be able to do things on your own. But I have realized that team play is also a good thing.
