Watch the Teulade brothers from France take on Manhattan in this iconic video from this year’s 2017 SEA Paddle NYC.  The brothers charge the turbulent waters of New York City’s East, Harlem and Hudson Rivers for OXBOW Sup to take a chance at being NYC’s greatest paddle champions.

 

 

SEA Paddle NYC 2017 and the boys at the front of the pack

OXBOW sends only its most stalwart of warriors to test the waters around Manhattan.  In 2017, in order to showcase the gleaming new lines of OXBOW’s racing designs, the Teulade brothers took up the challenge to race up the East River – through Hell’s Gate – to make the turn onto the Harlem River.  The course then runs up to Columbia University where paddler’s duck under the train bridge to where the rivers connect to stand on Manhattan’s greatest tributary, the Hudson River, and battle the winds and current another eight miles to the finish.

This 24-mile course is arguably one of the hardest in the sup racing scene due to conditions, currents, boat traffic and more.  But, with the Manhattan skyline as your backdrop and moments like paddling under the George Washington Bridge or through Hell’s Gate, it is a rite of passage you’ll never forget.

Get on the list for the 2018 SEA Paddle NYC event and WATCH the Teulade brothers charge the island’s perimeter in this iconic video from OXBOW.  Aloha!

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.
