Buying a Paddle Board is a Personal Experience

When you buy a new car, most people would test drive the vehicle prior to purchase, right? So, I think it only makes sense to try out a new paddle board before buying. All paddle boards are not the same. When you don't really know anything about a paddle board, you might not realize you should demo. I surely did not.

Further, when you notice paddle boards on the water, most of them are a certain length, and rounded at the front, a typical width, and those would be the types of boards available at many rental places and resorts. My distant goals, ever since I first climbed aboard a paddle board, was to buy an SUV to transport the board and to buy my very own paddle board. Little did I realize at the time I formed that vision this would happen in Hawaii.

It's an experience, however, I planned to share with my husband, the guy who doesn't give a hoot about paddle boards. You can read more in my personal blog today at this link: Tips for Buying a Paddle Board in Kona, Hawaii.

Which Do You Prefer: Charcoal or Gas Grill?
It seems that everything we have at our house in Hawaii is so much nicer than the stuff at our house in Sacramento. But that's probably because it's newer. My husband keeps telling me that I live in Hawaii now, but I really don't. Just part of the… more

Have You Ever Tasted a Liliko'i Opera Cake?
When I asked my neighbor, who is also my Christmas dinner host, if I could bring a liliko'i cake as dessert, she was fairly adamant that I not leave the remainder of the cake at her house. First, I think she was assuming I would bring an enormous… more
Finding a Nursery in Kailua-Kona is Who You Know
What I've discovered is some people love red ginger and some do not. I've heard some landscapers warn against red ginger because it's so invasive and spreads like crazy. Several I had spoken to suggested planting soap ginger instead. There are not… more
Best Tip for Finding a Gardener in Hawaii
The best tip for finding a gardener in Hawaii was right under my nose, and I didn't think of it for months. Instead, I just kept paying the guy who wasn't even the gardener I was supposed to be working with. I only know this because I talked to my… more
