“I’ve been doing SUP for about 5 years and it is crazy to see the growth. I’m lucky to be in my prime and just at the beginning of this amazing sport. I see it going farther then windsurfing and kiteboarding and possibly even surfing, because you can do it anywhere at anytime – all you need is water. I love this sport and without it I have no idea what I would be doing. To all you standup paddlers – ‘Always Have Fun and Never Give Up!’ Aloha.”
