Video | SUP on Ice

Common sense might tell you that if the lake is covered in ice, it probably is better suited for ice skating than paddleboarding. While we know SUP is the most versatile watersport around, it requires H2O in its liquid state, or so we thought until this paddling duo came along.

In a stunningly beautiful waterway just off the coast of the Vladivostok, Russia, large patches of ice cover a frigid lake. While most people would prefer to avoid the solid layer of ice, these two paddled straight through it. Not sure why, but it’s definitely amazing to watch and adds yet another use for the almighty SUP.
