June SUP Photo Of The Month Winner Announced

Another month of amazing, impressive and beautiful photos were submitted to the photo contest, and it's time to announce the winner. It's never an easy decision, but this month one image stood out by capturing the hearts and minds of readers.



 Our congratulations go out to Maria Bartels, who sent us this awesome SUP-combo shot, entitled 'SUP Golfing'.


Yip, SUP collaborations are all the rage right now. SUP Yoga, SUP, Fishing, SUP Safaris - SUP anything, really. SUP Golf is a new one to us and one that people went crazy for on all social platforms - Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr. 


We'd also like to pay tribute to the photo with the most votes this month, submitted by Luc Daneels and titled 'Together we Are Strong'.




Please note: all that votes do count and we will be placing Luc's photo in the final for the 2014 Photo of the Year. We also factor in the photo's social performance on all other channels, which is how we reach our final decision.
