Scientists Say It's Safe To Kayak The Gowanus AND Selectively Eat The Canal Fish
Eating fish from the Gowanus Canal is still not safe, but if you insist on casting your rod in the Lavender Lake, you should be ok.

It all started four years ago...who knew one three mile run around Harbor Island would turn into a passion?
This is a post about the Inland Paddler's decision to do the Cold Stroke four years ago, not long after she first started standup paddling.

Thanks to Starboard and other collaborators, last year's ISA World in Fiji were as ocean-friendly as they were exciting!
This is a post about how the 2016 Fiji World SUP and Paddleboard Championships received an important designation as an ocean-friendly Deep Blue Event.

Stand up paddle board SUP news and information
Introduction

This site is dedicated to Stand Up Paddleboarding SUP. From SUP racing, to stand up surfing, to SUP race training, SUP equipment and technique, I’ll post the latest information.

I love this new sport and have found the people I’ve met along the way are some of the kindest and most life-appreciating people on Earth. None of this could happen without paddlers around the world who email me information and resources for people who paddle.

The name “Distressed Mullet” comes from a fly-fishing guide, Seth Vernon. We were “walking the dog” with some topwater lures and getting slammed by redfish. I said, “Seth, why do they go nuts over this red cork-looking thing?” He responded, “Because it looks like a distressed mullet. Nothing in the world can resist a distressed mullet.”

When I was first learning how to paddle, I resembled a distressed mullet. I floundered. I fell. SUP became irresistible. No matter how badly I got my ass kicked, I wanted to get better. Flatwater turned into distance paddling, which turned into surfing and downwinders, which turned into open ocean downwinders, then the rivers.. dang this is fun.

I think that’s the true beauty of SUP is simply as another vehicle to get out and have fun on the water, to enjoy the outdoors, to ride waves and windswell, and in some cases, to compete. And my dog Bauer (Jack Bauer) loves being out there. At 70 pounds, he’s a boat-rocker, but it’s all good, because there are no terrorists on my waters. Some day, I’ll have my wife and new baby Stella out there paddling around.
