One of the hot topics in the world of river racing is the size of boards being used - should they be regulated? To shed some light on the topic, Alex Mauer, one of the best river racing and surfing talents in the US, weighs in.
This past weeked Candice Appleby took command of the River Rock race and came out on top wining a $3500 prize which equalled the top men's prize won by Chase Kosterlitz. Some are super stoked about this equal pay out while others are still debating the issue.
"Don't have models hold boards for us and pretend to be us, because they are not us." This was the recent message and call to action during a controversial discussion on The Wake Up SUP Show featured on www.Supconnect.com.
After several recent deaths involving stand up paddlers, the SUP world is currently involved in heavy discussion about SUP safety practices. However, it seems as though some paddlers are expressing very different opinions about what the safety rules should be.
