SUP International Magazine #08 Spring 2015 is the definitive guide to the sport of stand up paddle boarding, we’re constantly showcasing new products, discovering new angles, unveiling the most critical action and aim to make you a better and more motivated paddle boarder.
Nias: Made for standup? Even if the country’s transportation system isn’t immediately set up for it, that doesn’t stop the locals willing to try and get your boards there. So far, no local groms have hassled SUP’ers to leave their equipment…
Backstage: Tahitian Mat Fouliard seems to lead most elegant and charmed life, but there’s actually a fair amount of struggle involved. Not least in creating the very pictures to show us all how good it is out there.
The Second Frothing: Kai Bates returns to Southern California, gazes into fires, shoots the pier, and wafts his fins on a filthy little clean water beach break.
Isle of Wight: Take a tour of the jewel on the south coast with local boy Tom Court.
Galapagos Islands: You know you’re somewhere pretty special when the lulls are more interesting than the waves. Rob Small dodges sea lions and iguanas on Darwin’s Island.
Morocco: Mirleft – Instead of heading north out of Agadir airport, take a journey south to find a slew of empty set ups waiting for you to carve your style across them.
Race Nutrition: Austrian pioneer Peter Bartl explains that while profiteroles, forty beers a week and too much milk can hinder your progress, big bowls of noodles at lunch will not.
Paddle Sizes: Back again, Finn Mullen rounds up a crew or pro paddlers to find out their preferences on shaft length and blade size, as well as their all time top tips.
Stepping Up: Canarian hell-woman Iballa Moreno has a pep talk for us on staring down, and then riding down, formidable reef break surf.
Micro Guides: All within four hours from Heathrow Airport: Slovenia, Pembrokeshire, Taghazoute.
