Um er, a couple of things.
1) I might actually not be as gay as this ID suggests, it's a wind up of North Riders in the UK some of whom know me, and my apologies for the deception, can't have folk wrongly thinking they've 'offended' real gay people.
2)SUP, I did this round island sailing marathon thing recently, it was blowing force five to six and it's 40 odd miles round this island. There was this dude on a SUP, started at 8 in the morning and eventually finished about 4 in the afternoon, paddling against 25 knot winds and a 5 knot tide at times, honestly, I'm as much in the 'SUP is ghey' camp as anyone, but I went up to that dude and shook his hand. Then he said there's a woman still out there, she finished after 11 hours, so clearly some feats of definite prowess in SUP world.
3)Hetracil, I'm sorry to say it's a spoof, it was some US vote on an amendment to some constitutional deal which meant Southern Californians were no longer to be regarded as GAY or something. It's not going to stop you becoming a SUP rider.
So,to the guys that PM'd me, thanks for you concern and to the rest of you, it can be a laugh, but it also can appear to be hurtful, I'm not sure everyone is like me and enjoys a good wind up and wether I were Gay or not, personally it wouldn't upset me, but I'm sure there are folk who do get a tad upset.
I mean, imagine you had a kid and it took up SUP riding.
