The requests are in. We have to start a “health” column. I’d been thinking (no headaches this time) about it for some time. I know when I’m out on the water with friends, especially surfing or paddling, there’s practically a symbiosis of good vibes and physical satisfaction. And winding out the session, long stares over the water, cleaning up and strapping down, a certain bliss wraps us all with a comforting hug. I don’t think the word “health” captures this feeling.
“Vigor,” on the other hand, has synonyms for every letter of the alphabet. Active, good health, mental energy, and vitality to name a few. Our goal here is to bring you some useful info to improve your water time and your life. Or as it’s Anglo/French roots convey, be lively, flourish, and thrive.
