The Power of a Paddle…With Your Dog

Grab your furry friend and hit the water for a mind-shift in the right direction. It was noon on a Wednesday, middle of a work-week and middle of the day. The sun was out but it wasn’t what you’d call “hot”. A balmy 53 to be exact. It would have been easy to just hit […]

Extreme SUP: The Do’s and Don’ts of Boat Wake Surfing

Using Your SUP Surf Paddle Board on Flat Water Suppose you have a Naish Mana 8’10” Surf SUP, a paddle board that is designed for dominating the surf using an awesome tail rocker and a near perfect platform for excellent maneuverability but you are hundreds of miles away from the nearest ocean. What can you […]

SUP Racing: A Showdown

Taking SUP Racing to the Next Level Dale Earnhardt once quipped: “Finishing races is important; but racing is more important.” For the average stand up paddle boarder, the experience on the water often involves a single pursuit: to have fun.
