Video || Mike Tavares || East Coast Whitewater SUP

Mike Tavares is one of few guys who’s dedicated his hobby, profession and life to the pursuit to whitewater SUP.  He charges—both downriver and standing waves—as displayed in the video you’re about to click on. Together with a select posse of fellow river rippers—including guys like Zach Hughes, Spencer Lacy, Mark Linn and Haley Mills (Haley’s not a guy, but she can hang with the best of ’em)—Tavares is inventing new maneuvers (see 0:58) and expanding the realm of possibility every time he hits the whitewater. Here’s his latest edit from the East Coast for you to enjoy.
