Skate Meets SUP on the River

We’re just going to go ahead and say it…paddlers are some of the most creative watersports athletes around. There always seems to be someone finding a new way to paddle whether its in the river, lakes, ocean, or even a drainage ditch. With river SUP surfing becoming more popular, a new style is beginning to form that blends skateboarding and standup paddling into one epic sub-sport.

This latest video features paddler Hannah Ray Childs performing 360s and even adding in a “shove-it”–all while SUP surfing a glassy standing wave. It’s just the latest example of paddlers innovating and pushing our sport to new limits.
