How to paddle through waves without losing your Sup Paddle!

Global Partner

Ever lose your paddle while trying to prone stroke your board out into the line up? Here’s a great video from Nate V. of Signature Surf on securing your paddle to your board!

The Sup Velcro Project from Signature Surf

Take it from the grom:  Paddling through the white water can be tough.  Especially if you’re lying on your belly with a paddle underneath your chest, trying to punch through some waves.  Nate V. from Signature Surf & Skate developed this ingenious way of securing your paddle to your board so you don’t always have to have a hand on it.

Thanks, Nate!  We look forward to more tips from Nate and his pals at Signature Surf this summer!
