PaddleWoo Podcast with Evelyn O’Doherty of Standup Journal

Erik Antonsen is a force to be reckoned within the stand up paddling industry.  He is a dynamic, progressive board shaper with his innovative SUP Surf shapes at Portal Surf Designs, he is a co-host of sorts to Chase Kosterlitz’s Blue Zone SUP Surf Camp in Nosara, Costa Rica, podcast host at PaddleWoo Podcasts and the inspiration behind one of the greatest SUP Surfing films of all time, the Progression Project.

Beyond that, Erik is just stoked. He is a pleasure to talk with to raise your vibe, energy level and get you frothing to get on the water.

Here is a recent PaddleWoo podcast I did with Erik where we cover everything from winter surfing in Montauk, NY to taking charge at Standup Journal, as well as my role with the APP World Tour.  Thanks for another great convo, Erik!  See you on the water real soon.

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.
