National SUP day
What a great day was had by all for National SUP Day on the 26th May. It sounds like the weather was perfect across the country with clear skies and light winds. Many SUP clubs and schools organised demo days, fun racing or put on extra sessions to encourage people to get on the water and give SUP a try. Some clubs also reported over 100 spectators! It would be great to find out how many paddleboarders were on the water that day. So if you haven’t already make sure you let us know where you were paddling via Facebook or email.

The shortest SUP yet?
Escape SUP’s in Cornwall have been working on a Mini Simms style SUP board over the winter and at 7 foot it’s a little rocket. Alex Murray from Escape said “It is super fast and super stable. Don’t be put off by the length, it’s super easy to paddle.” If you fancy giving it a go and finding out for yourself, contact the guys at Escape as it’s available for demo.
Are you serious?!!
Well at least we know that if you want to put a 4HP outboard on a SUP it’s possible. You definitely don’t want to fall off though and be left behind! Wonder what someones going to try next?
It’s amazing what you can achieve with a bit of spare time, an idea and some sharp scissors! Or more like… a lot of spare time! The guys at Paddleboard Uruguay obviously have far too much time on their hands! Pretty impressive though.
Is this why Laird is stacked?
Laird Hamilton has been busy pushing his new Ocean Yoga Fit program. It looks pretty cool stuff and if you end up looking like Laird after a few workout sessions it’s surely worth a try!
