my real issues are 1. poor paddling stamina, 2not getting in the sea often enough and 3only being able to surf 2-3 ft waves. 4 More gym/pool time I think.

Make sure your paddle stroke enters the water right next to your board and pulls the way back along the board not with any action out to the side, check that your position on the board allows you to get maximum glide.
A question or two;
Are you still riding that 7' 3" minimal you had when you first started posting?
Did you fix the cracks and stuff adequately?
I have some thoughts about that too!

- 2 minutes paddle at 50%
- 30 seconds at 75%
- 15 seconds at 100%
- hop off the board and stay underwater to a count of 10 (I suspect 5 or less is the limit for us mortals at the end of this paddling circuit)
- get back on board. Rest 60 seconds and repeat until exhausted (actually, I think it was repeat 5 times - which is only about 20 min total - but 5 times will be exhausting)
You will probably find, if you are anything like me, that even 15 seconds at 100% is pretty tough. So adjust as appropriate - as with everything exercise related, what a pro does/can do may not be suitable for a non pro. That said, the exercise is somewhat self regulating, in that your 100% will be less intensive.
