  NH Break...

that I surf often. Last year, maybe about 5-10% of the line-up last year. This year, almost 50%. A lot of them aren't even into surfing. They try to paddle (survive) through the break zone on a small day, and just paddle around, taking in the sun. That's cool. Whatever floats them.

My homebreak - still only one SUPer and one waveskier (me) so far in a line-up of boardies.

SUP isn't going to fade. The doers will select the ride of choice and stick with it. It's like saying skateboarding, or snoboarding is a fad. Given the demographics of who does what. I think seakayaking will peter out with the middle age group that currently consumes/affords the $3000 boats, $1000 drysuits and misc other (not insignificant) costs (e.g. sea kayaking haulers), lessons, etc that go with the "sport".

Personally, I say don't get caught up with what others do. Just do what you enjoy and/or are challenged/interested by.
