 In the meantime, watch the following 4 videos by Danny Ching and Jimmy Terrell with some extremely valuable SUP paddle techniques and instruction based on their years of experience.

Training Ideas & Issues

I would love to have your ideas, opinions and / or observations on SUP training techniques ... either your about your own original ideas and training OR your thoughts about current trends out there in our paddling community now.  Do you have an opposing opinion to something I have posted or something you've read posted on "Riding Bumps", "Distressed Mullet", "SUP Connect" or elsewhere... Please send it in! I want your feedback and so does all of our knowledge hungry paddling community! Contact me here.

SUP Race Events, Rules & Racing Organizations

What's your opinion about current state of SUP racing: divisions,  timing, prizes, awards, board size limitations, drug testing, certifications, etc....  What do you think about the WPA vs SUPAA or even the ACA  (that's the 3 main "Governing Bodies" of paddling, the oldest being the American Canoe Association, then the World Paddling Association, and the very newest Stand Up Paddle Athletes Association)?  Share your take both pros and cons here with us. Contact me here.
