What better photo to wrap up 2013 than this one of a paddle surfer riding into the ocean? This was taken from the Black Eagle Restaurant in Aguada, Rincon. A little web surfing (that's the only kind of surfing I can do) revealed that this restaurant has changed hands and been renamed La Copa Llena at the Black Eagle since Nov. '12.
Stand up paddle surfing (SUP), stand up paddle boarding, is an offshoot of surfing which originated in Hawaii. In the Hawaiian language it is called Hoe he'e nalu. According to Wikipedia, it was the outdoor sporting activity with the most first-time participants of any in the United States in 2013. Paddlers race on lakes, large rivers and canals, ride standing waves, and glide over long distances along sea coasts, often using tail winds to aid the trip. A related, traditional sport, paddleboarding, is done kneeling on a board and paddling with the hands, similar to a butterfly swimming stroke. The term "paddleboarding" is sometimes incorrectly used to refer to standup paddle surfing. Though there are a few examples of someone standing on a float with a pole or oar earlier, stand up paddle surfing really began taking off after 2005.
I wish everyone a festive end-of-2013 and an even happier 2014!
Güle Güle, 2013!
2013ü sarmak için, bu kürek sörfçünün okyanusa doğru açılışından daha iyi bir fotoğraf olur mu? Bu Agua, Rinconda Black Eagle Restaurantda (Kara Kartal Lokantası) alınmıştır. Bir küçük web sörfü (benim yapabildiğim tek sörf türü) bu restoranın Kasım '12den beri el değiştirdiğini ve La Copa Llena at the Black Eagle (Kara Kartalda La Copa Llena) diye yeniden adlandırıldığını ortaya koymuştur.
Ayakta kürek sörfü (SUP [AKS]), Hawaii kökenli bir sörf dalıdır. Hawaii dilinde buna Hoe he'e nalu denir. Wikipediaya göre, 2013 yılında Amerika Birleşik Devletlerinde en çok ilk kez katılımcısı olan açık hava spor etkinliği oldu. Kürekçiler göller, büyük nehirler ve kanallarda yarış ederler, duran dalgalarda, ve sık sık yolculuğa yardım için kuyruk rüzgarları kullanarak, deniz kıyıları boyunca uzun mesafeler üzerinde kayarlar. Bununla ilgili bir geleneksel spor, paddleboarding, bir sörf üzerinde diz çökülüp kelebekleme yüzme benzeri eller ile küreklemeyle yapılır. "Paddleboarding terimi bazen yanlış olarak ayakta kürek sörfünü belirtmek için kullanılır. Bir sırık veya kürekle bir duba üzerinde duranların daha erken bir kaç örneği olmasına rağmen, ayakta kürek sörfü gerçekten 2005 yılından sonra yaygınlaşmaya başladı.
Ben herkese şenlikli bir 2013-sonu ve daha da mutlu bir 2014 diliyorum!

Indeed, the scenes like this one are simply perfect to celebrate the last day of the year! Like it a lot! Especially the yellow-golden tonality of the view made it so unique and beautiful. Very well done and composed. I wish you and your loved ones all the best in 2014!

I lived 1 hour away from surf beaches both north and south of Brisbane Australia and never learned to surf so don't feel too bad! A superb end to the day shot and a fitting end to the year. Hope 2014 is a better year for everyone and people try a bit harder to chill out and get on with one another a bit better. Have a safe, happy and prosperous New Year!

A beautiful photo most apt for the occasion. The photo has excellent tonal quality. Lovely warm sunshine colors and the palm silhouette acts as a beautiful framing. The lone paddle surfer acts as good focal point. Thanks for sharing an excellent photo.
Wish you and your family all the very best for 2014.

An apt motif to celebrate the passing of the old year. Like the paddler on his surf board we are off to new and unknown shores and the new year lies like an open canvas in front of us, just like the open sea in this scene.
May the new year bring happiness, joy and health to you and your family.

Indeed it is a perfect shot for the year-end. Colors from the setting sun create appealing effect in the scene framed by the silhouettes. An attractive composition with the lone surfer. Wonderful shot.
With best wishes for New Year 2014,

Nice added the palm-trees branchs on sides and above, in super clear view, with depth out to the horizon.
Golden tone gave a special texture to the scene.

I like the graphism and great sense of depth in your composition. The interrupted framing by the palm leaves is fine and the tiny figure of the surfer in the vast seascape and frame is so intriguing and captivating. I also like the motion and textures of the sea, looking so natural in this graphical image. It's great how you left the sun just out of the frame, the warm homogeneous tint is lovely. Congratulations and thank you!
All the best, have a wonderful year!

lovely composition. I like the framing with the palm tree leaves and the guy on the surf boat is a nice way to enhance the interest. The colors are stunning.
Have a happy New Year!
