O Monterey! Brent Allen’s paddle odyssey of Monterey Bay’s beautiful Marine Sanctuary

Global Partner

Here at Standup Journal, we love Brent Allen Outside. Brent stands for everything we believe in. He is a paddler. He is stoked on getting more people out on the water. And he is fierce about encouraging the care of and raising awareness about our environment.

A Paddle Odyssey

This exclusive standup paddle journey video is both breathtaking and poignant.  Brent Allen takes us via spectacular drone footage through some of the diverse locations from where Brent Allen Outside commonly launches both on his paddle tours and through the kelp beds where he offers his annual marine clean ups.  See for yourself how special the Monterey peninsula is in terms of water quality, preservation and the ecological heritage that it offers.

Brent Allen Outside offers a very different type of standup paddle adventure.  It offers a refreshed look at the natural preserves where we paddle and creates an awareness of the vulnerability within that environment.  Featured in the film are launch points such as Fishermans Wharf in Monterey, Carmel Beach in Carmel, Lovers Point in Pacific Grove and Stillwater Cove in Pebble Beach CA.

See for yourself the diverse marine habitat of central California’s coastline.  Get ready to jump in those waters and paddle … away.

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.
