Paddleboarding But Not Necessarily Standing Up

While we were in the Basque country in September, we took a tourist ferry across the inlet from Saint Jean de Luz to the Fort de Socoa over at Ciboure, and several times we encountered a couple stand up paddleboarding across the water. It was clearly long and arduous, because they periodically gave up standing, and would lie down or kneel. By the time I spotted them arriving at the fort the young woman looked quite fed up.

Not to be confused with waterboarding!

I'm pretty confident the young klady would regard both being as being unnecessary torture.
