The ghouls and goblins are out as final day of October has dawned. While free candy and endless parties are more than enough reason to celebrate, everyone knows the best part of Halloween is the costumes. With the conventional rules of society out the window, everybody from kids to adults get to wear the wildest, most outlandish outfit they can conjure up.

Of course, this is not just limited to dry land. Standup paddlers get pretty serious about their Halloween attire too. With one quick scan of our Instagram feed, we noticed that clowns, pirates and skeletons have begun taking over paddling locales around the globe. As an ode’ to those paddlers brave enough to stroke through haunted waters, we collected all of the spookiest SUP costumes from this year. Scroll on, if you dare.
