Our publication is all about YOU, the people and passion behind the sport of stand up paddling.

Which is WHY at the Surf Expo, the premiere tradeshow for the watersports industry in North America, we are on the showroom floor conducting interviews, gaining insight and asking questions about new products and designs for the year ahead.

Surf Expo hosts legends and innovation at 2019 January Show

Walking through the show on Thursday, I caught a glimpse and shared a smile with Gerry Lopez at the Surftech booth (#805), caught up with Kalama for a minute to talk about foils over at Alex Aguerre’s GoFoil booth (#704) and shared some epic story telling with NY surf legend John Gunderson who is writing a book on the history of surfing that we can’t wait to come out.

John Gunderson stopped by the SJ booth and kept us all enthralled with surf story and the history of the sport of kings.

That’s the thing about the Expo, it’s not just about the equipment – although that is certainly the backdrop and conversation piece at every booth – but it’s the synergy between equipment and innovator, the conversations that take place, wisdom shared and learning gleaned.  Really an extraordinary place.

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 . 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.
