Roger “Dogman” Saunders | SUP Surfing a Couch Chair

Standup paddleboarding has lent itself to some pretty wacky ideas over the years–from a SUP surfing goat to a giant SUP banzai run down a drainage ditch. However, this new video may take the title of “Most Innovative Ridiculous Use of a Standup Paddleboard.”

We find here legendary Australian SUP hellman Roger “Dogman” Saunders and a comfy-looking couch chair, a combination that bears uncanny resemblance to that Dude from The Big Lebowski. Dogman takes his La-Z-Boy to a standup paddleboard and proceeds to have one of the most relaxing SUP surfing sessions of all time. Forget standup paddling, the Dogman may have just invented a new sport–sitdown paddling. So to sum up this moment of cutting-edge innovation in our sport, we’ll leave you with the insightful words of one Jeffrey Lebowski: “The dude abides.”


For something else different, watch the Dogman SUP shredding to a heavy metal soundtrack.
