When Leonardo told me we were going to start offering standup paddleboarding down here in Brazil’s Amazon, my first question was, “What the hell’s standup paddleboarding ?”
My second question was, “No seriously. What the hell’s standup paddleboarding?”
Leonardo explained it that standup paddleboarding involves an oversize surfboard-like-thing, a long paddle, and a person willing to stand on that board and paddle.
This activity supposedly get you closer to the water and is a unique way to experience and enjoy the river and the rainforest. It’s also one helluva of a workout.
Or so I’m told.
I’m not getting on one of those things.
But then I never get massages either.
Or go swimming with pink dolphins.
But lots of folks like that sort of thing so we offer them and a whole lot more.
And are the only folks in Brazil’s Amazon to do so.
I know this because I know Amazônia.
I’m Capt Peacock.
