Sup Away from it ALL!
We are taken into the secret spots within the country with Standup Journal’s “12 Places to completely sup away from it all” including magical adventures in New Orleans LA, Little Rock AR, Salton Sea CA and Lake Powell UT. The images will entice you, the stories will motivate you. We’d love to hear about YOUR favorite paddling spot in a NEW online forum we are hosting on our Sup Launch Sites page where you can upload pix and specifics about your own backyard Eden for stand up paddling. It only takes a minute and, who knows, you could wind up in the Journal yourself 😉
Brace for Impact
“Racing down the line at full speed, I try to avoid running right over him, but he ends up dead center in my cross hairs.” – Steve West
Next, Santa Cruze sup surfer/photographer, Steve West, tells the tail behind a ding repair that won’t soon be forgot. When you’re out in the break, the swell is building and you wind up in a tangle with ‘that guy’. You know the one. He’s in over his head, drops in in front of you and T-bones your rail with that rented longboard? It’s the full scale story, told with the humor of a guy who’s witnessed a lot of dings and bumps and lives to tell the tale.
There are still wild places we love to explore
There are ALSO plenty of stories about paddling in Texas, outdoor adventures in British Columbia with Jimmy Martinello & crew, plus an incredible journey through the wilds of Alaska via stand up paddleboard. STILL the premiere, glossy magazine of the sport, Standup Journal’s summer issue, “Open Rangers” encourages you to explore YOUR own backyard and celebrate ALL the magnificent power paddle spots we have right here in North America. She sure is pretty, ain’t she?
