QUOTE:
“For me, standup paddling is the most interactive way for me to express myself on the water, allowing me to take full advantage of our natural resources. Being able to paddle any type of water no matter where I happen to be is such an advantage to the sport. Surfing standing waves on whitewater rivers is what really gets me fired up. It requires a different set of skills which combines surfing with reading whitewater. Its the next frontier for the sport with unlimited resources around the country.”
