Chuck Patterson knows his sup 😉 He’s always one of the front runners when it comes to testing out new equipment or trying something for the first time (like skiing down the face of a wave at Jaws with ski poles in hand), Check out his latest video on the performance side of the Naish  hydro foil for standup paddling. He’s about to take YOU for a ride!

Balance is the key to life.”

There’s something to be said for always striving to be challenged, learning something new.  The science of foiling has always intrigued me and, like all the sports I’ve spent my life doing, I’m totally addicted.  Word to the wise. be patient, very observant, respectful and safe.  This ride is like walking on the clouds!  – Chuck Patterson

RIDE THE GLIDE:  Having watched Chuck teach my friends how to hydro foil on a sup, I know he is a good, patient teacher.  The rides, once there, look effortless and incredible, but the learning curve is … well, a curve 😉  Take your time and have fun out there!

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.
