On July 4th, the United States of America celebrated its 242nd birthday. So naturally, Americans celebrated their nation’s independence day with fireworks, barbecues and for those of age–yes, plenty of booze. But just like any other holiday, the SUP community was quick to join in on the revelry by wearing red, white and blue on the water. To see how your fellow paddlers celebrated, we scoured our Instagram feed and put together a collection of our favorite patriotic SUP costumes. Enjoy.
