SUP at Calgary Outdoor Adventure Show

The countdown is on until my Vegas weekend this weekend! Woot! Woot! I can’t wait for some heat!! It’s going to feel soooooo good! And am I ever jonesing for summer and adventures after attending the Calgary Outdoor Adventure Show this past weekend.

SO MUCH stuff to read!!

SO MUCH stuff to read!!

You can ask my pal Keirstyn, I became more and more wired as we walked up and down the aisles, chatting with vendors, entering contests, and grabbing reading materials such as magazines, maps, tourism guides.

My favourite place! Waterton

I chatted with the Crowsnest Pass Tourism folks because I’m hoping to get out there more this summer. And I also realized that I can take fly fishing lessons! I’m dying to learn to fish but can’t find anyone to teach me, so I think a lesson will be in order.

The absolute highlight of the show which I’m sorry, trumps all the rest is that I got to try SUP yoga during a demo. SUP Vancouver was giving demos and I ran to the booth and asked to try Yoga and they were very accommodating.

I’m happy to report I did really well. It helps that the Boga Yoga board is SUPER stable, but I like to think I am a natural.

You can see how excited I was!

The highlight was watching one guy go into the pool attempting a headstand!

I was disappointed in the Health & Wellness Centre though- it was just a corner of the show and was mainly chiropractors, essential oils, and vitamins. I don’t know what I was expecting, maybe a running club or an exercise equipment dealer or even better- a coach!

Overall, it was a really enjoyable show and Keir and I had so much fun hanging out together. Now let’s see if I won any of the draws I entered!

Friends in tents!!
