Team Escape Watersports kicked off the week by travelling down to Tushingham Sails Ltd, to check out the popular Stand Up Paddle brands Red Paddle Co. and Starboard SUP.
Definitely a real eye opener to the growing popularity of SUP in the UK, not to mention within Europe and the USA. The sport seems to be going from strength to strength, and there are now a lot more options when it comes to boards, paddles, and equipment.
Gus has been pushing SUPs for a while, having travelled to Morroco, Ibiza and along the Welsh coastline, but myself and Gareth like many other paddlers weren't initially sold on the idea.
But the idea of having an inflatable SUP that folds into a rucksack which you can carry around with you on holiday and pump up when you get to the beach, is starting to seem like a really smart idea.
Touring, catching waves of all sizes, and the odd race makes this a great spring/summer investment and could even get some use during the colder months for keeping up fitness when the rivers are low.
