This beautiful 2-minute trailer is a hint of what one can expect from this year’s SUP Film Fest powered by Paddle4Good, a non-profit benefiting environmental advocacy groups and people in need.

Max Montgomery created the first ever Film Festival based in Stand Up Paddling and held its premiere launch in Santa Barbara, CA in May 2019.

SUP Film Fest: September 1st in Long Beach NY at Allegria Hotel

The APP World Tour recently added the SUP Film Fest as a part of their New York SUP Open (Aug 31st – Sept. 8th) stop on the tour to add to the evening’s entertainment schedule. Hosted by a non-profit, Paddle4Good, the SUP Film Fest offers a terrific cache of the most inspirational stand up paddle film journeys we’ve seen yet.

From “The Great Route” a paddler’s expedition to Greenland to explore the melting ice caps via SUP, to “Epic Love” from The Crossing for Cystic Fibrosis championing individuals coping with this disease by taking on an 80-mile open water crossing to celebrate the healing powers of the ocean’s salt air to CF patients. There is the story of Jonas Letieri, who lost both forearms in an accident to overcome his handicap and become a professional SUP athlete. There are so many stories to tell.

Sit back and get ready to enjoy the Film Fest in Long Beach, NY.

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.
