Stand Up Paddleboards, or SUP, are quickly becoming one of the hottest trends in outdoor and fitness communities. Originally used for commuting on water these boards have found their way onto lakes, oceans, and more recently rivers as a means of both exercise and recreation.
Our field service rep Mark Cohen stopped by Ogden, Utah the other afternoon to paddle with Nick Turner of WRSI Helmets on the wave he built, The Riverdale Wave. Nick was kind enough to take Mark out for a SUP Surf Session during his lunch break and it was amazing…amazingly fun and challenging. While Mark spent a good deal of time swimming after his board in the river, the experience was well worth it.
