SUPtheWorld.com – A travel website catering to standup paddlers of all ages and skill levels, who'd like a SUP-centric vacation, officially launches today!
SUPtheWorld offers unique surf and/or flat-water locations as well as once-in-a-lifetime expeditions.
Immerse yourself in the pristine waters of Australia, Thailand, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Taiwan, Puerto Rico, the Solomon Islands and many more. All locations cater from couples to small groups and offer personal service with professional guides and packages.
Experience foreign cultures, waters and meet fellow standup paddlers who'll guide you through their own country, will dial you in to the best places to SUP as well as great local eats and cultural sites. Plus they'll ensure you get to see a lot of areas from a unique water perspective, far removed from regular vacationers.
SUPtheWorld is conceived and operated by photojournalist Neil Armstrong (aka 'Moonwalker' – for obvious reasons!) who, for the past 18 years has been traveling with professional surfers and water stoked folks for many international publications, including SUP Magazine, Standup Journal, Pacific Longboarder Magazine and The Surfers Journal.
He's spent the past twelve months talking and researching with many in our SUP world to see what people really wanted and expected from a SUP vacation; from frequently traveling Pro SUP athletes to SUP-for-fun families, SUP-centric couples – as well as from his own globe-trotting photo adventures. And along the way, building packages with operators who really understand what it means to be a standup paddler.
