Standup paddlers charge hard, whether its barrels, long bump glides, cleanly run rapids, big drops or, sometimes, the wipeouts that are part of it all. In that vein, welcome to SUP magazine’s new RIDES series, where we pay homage to the skill, and the spills, that make SUP great.

Our first installment of Rides features Australian SUP and kiteboarding virtuoso Keahi de Aboitiz getting barreled out of his head on the North Shore of Oahu. Enjoy.
