    I don't think its a fad since its been around longer than surfing but it is like telemark because all the hot MILF's are in on the action.

    Local shop throws a fish fry every full moon then we go out and cruise around and listen to bands playing at the various bars. It's not all about exercise.

    Nope some surfer told me that.
    Didn't believe it so I looked it up, started with outriggers then stand up then they dropped the paddle to start surfing. I've been surfing for 30 years, love it but also like to try something different especially if there are a lot of cute girls around.

    and you think that's at all related to the modern "sport"?

    You guys still have some really stupid arguments around here.

    If you want to do it and like it, do it.
    If you don't, don't.

    For landlocked peeps it's great.

    Least of my worries.
    Lots of fun on the water up in PC area lately.

    beautiful BD!

    tele comparison? i don't get it.

    it reminds me of when mtn bikes hit the mainstream in the late 80's early 90's. then kayaks hit in the mid to late 90's. now the SUP's are on the same path. all this stuff ends up in the yard sale pile for most.

    Rather valid closing point:

    7. Regardless of social media scorn, loss of dignity, and potential erosion of your social standing, they’re both great for your fitness, relatively cheap to do, and pretty darn fun. Also, they make for great tests in how susceptible you are to the subtle influence of the opinions of others.

    I SUPed at Tahoe with my 13 yo son Sunday. It was fun as hell. Not thrilling, but just mellow fun. I could give a shit what anyone thinks about it. If I lived on/near the water, I'd get one.

    The image of Mr Pink staring with a sort of approval at a Laird Hamilton/minotaur/unicorn on a SUP is where this thread should have ended.




    But to the question: try it. If you like it buy one. Post a TR.

    PM Jer, I think he just took a SUP across Superior to Canada to buy a bag of gas. I'm sure he'd be happy to help you out.

    Do it! I don't care what anyone else says, it was a blast. (Obviously I am very concerned with how I look, though.)

    SUP'd this weekend in CT, but the Caribbean is made for it. The water is so clear, I was able to get out and catch the elusive Manta Ray of Francis Bay, only because I had a SUP at my disposal...

    ya, the visibility into the water is pretty damn cool from a sup.

    local shop give tours and people are always flailing and falling in, but it can be tricky in a swell, chop and in wind. anyway, last week this girl says 'what's that?' Oh, just a 6-7' shark. ha! no fall zone! water has been stupid warm of the coast on NH lately, but it sure is nice to be in trunks. a lot of jelly fish too...little odd.

    SUP seems kind of boring/pointless without any waves to ride, but then, unless you're in Hawaii, the surf crowd will vibe you hard for showing up at a break on a SUP. I think a kayak is a better all around vessel for cruising lakes/rivers/shoreline.

    OR it looks like you took a closeup of a penguin after someone jacked off on your lens. YMMV.
