We've got a really special piece written by Shelby Rose Taylor - a Rogue athlete and SUP racer hailing from Kentucky of all places.

2. Steven Tyler SUP'S
Heat Score - 77
It's funny how tabloids can turn something as pure and fun as paddle boarding into a riveting story, full of explosive adjectives and hyberboles. Aerosmith frontman, Steve Tyler, was on holiday in Hawaii with his family and the Daily Mail managed to turn him going for a cruise into a tale of woe, adversity and chronic pain.
