The Big Winds team won’t stop paddling just because the weather gets colder.  They know it’s all about the gear.  Good gear surmounts cold temps every time.  Here’s their latest video showcasing the Starboard Sup Suit, a true revolution in the game of sup.

Starboard Sup Suit:  A way to stay out there for winter paddling

Big Winds again shows us the gear in its greatest light.  In this  video, TJ surprises the neighbors by pulling out his stand up race board when everyone else is thinking of skiing and/or snowboarding.

How can we get out on the water in cold weather?  TJ knows it’s about his gear, specifically, the Starboard Sup Suit which insulates  body heat at the same time as it allows ample movement.  Designed specifically for paddling, this dry suit can make it easier to stay on the water late into the season and get back out there in the spring to do what you love.

Thanks Big Winds!  Always appreciate the knowledgeable content from safety, to fin set up and equipment reviews.

Evelyn O’Doherty
Evelyn O'Doherty, owner & publisher of the new Standup Journal 2.0, worked her way up the ranks in the world of stand up paddling. A former surfer gone rogue, Evelyn stepped onto a SUP for the first time in 2009 when a plaguing neck injury kept her out of the water from surfing. Discovering the core benefits and expanded perspective on the water that stand up paddling brings, Ev immediately was hooked. She became a strong SUP racer in the North East and a year-round SUP surfer, gathering multiple top brand sponsorships including becoming a team rider for Starboard SUP and a national ambassador for Kialoa, as well as celebrating all aspects of the sport with additional brand ambassadorships including lululemon athletica, Clif Bar, Cobian, Kaenon & Indo Board. Her love of watersports and commitment to advocacy in preserving our marine environments led to a short film made with The Nature Conservancy as part of their Clean Water initiatives on Long Island, NY, called "A New Perspective". Evelyn just keeps paddling. Today, she's stepped up to take over the helm at Standup Journal after having worked for the magazine for 2 years as senior online editor. Her dedication and belief in the power of print to immerse readers in the watersports they love even if they don't have access to the water in a daily existence plus a powerful desire to spotlight the amazing people doing rad sh*t on the water is what drives her vision for Standup Journal 2.0. Evelyn welcomes the conversation about how to make the magazine benefit as many people as possible and encourages feedback, letters to the editor and communication at editor@standupjournal.com . Now, as owner/publisher for Standup Journal., Evelyn continues to live in East Hampton NY where she has daily access to the water. When the swell is working, you can find her in Montauk rattling around in her Ford Ranger surfboards hanging out the back headed for points East.
