I'm so sorry that your "friends" were so cruel and ruined your happy mood after such a perfect day on the ocean. I hope you can get back out to the ocean soon and recapture that joy and feeling of triumph when you stand up (I've never tried paddle boarding as I keep picturing myself bailing hard!).
