Standup Journal represents the spirit, personalities and jaw dropping images surrounding the standup paddling community
Introduction
Founded in June, 2007, Standup Journal  is the world’s first-ever standup mag, hitting newsstands March 21st, 2008

Clay with sup’ing daughters/advisory board members Anna and Kira, and co-publisher/paddling partner/wife & soulmate Joyce Bilodeau with her son/our graphic artist-marketing director Adam Champagne.

“Passionately following and writing about this special lifestyle, the culture, and the adventure and lifelong friendships we share.”

Clay Feeter, a West Coast surfer since the late 60s and a windsurfer since 1980, was the associate editor ofWind Surf magazine in California in the early 1980s under editor John Severson, founder of Surfermagazine and later under editor Drew Kampion, a noted surf journalist. Feeter also founded and ran the $100,000 DHL Cocos Windsurfing Cup on Guam, the highest purse one design windsurf regatta in history. In 1984, while still with Wind Surf mag Feeter was the first in the world to race on a cambered sail.

A wild bunch exploring an untamed zip code during the Russell’s Ranch, Cape Mendocino, Northen Calif. sojourn for Drew Kampion and Wind Surf mag, 1985, the year Wind Tracks was born. Maui’s Mike Waltze, Berkeley’s Kevin Mitchell, photographer Chris “The Codger” Klopf, Shaun O’Neill (wetsuit mogul Jack O’Neill’s daughter, lying down). Farther right is Dave Nash, Steve West and Clay Feeter.

Clay left Wind Surf in 1985 to start his own magazine, California Boardsailor, which became Wind Tracks Journal, the most spirited, soulful North American windsurfing publication. He sold Wind Tracks toAmerican Windsurfer in 2000 and now is back with Standup Journal, a new era, photo-heavy action and lifestyle sup magazine that also embraces our glorious heritage, pioneering and exploration days.

The Team: A Legacy of ‘Round the Campfire, Standup Journalism…

Fringed by semi innocent bystanders, buddies Will Brady, owner of Oregon’s Floras Lake House windsurfing bed and breakfast (sitting on left) and Kevin Trejo (standing far right), owner of Solo Sports Adventures, Baja are core Standup Journalistas (standing) Tom Byrnes, Glenn Dubock, Clark Merritt, Steve West and (sitting) Clay and Kurt Feeter.

Clay Feeter, Publisher  York, Maine
Clay Feeter started “Wind Tracks” magazine in late ’84 in Santa Cruz, moved his family, 1989 (two days after the Oct. Loma Prieta Earthquake) to the soon to be windsurf Mecca of Pistol River, Ore., and evolved his mag to “West Coast Windsurfing”…
… and then,’93, to “Wind Tracks Magazine” as the publication went national.
Oct. ’98: Feeter’s “Wind Tracks Journal” was now a quarterly inspired by Steve Pezman’s “Surfer’s Journal”…
….With the decline of windsurfing popularity, Clay sold the mag in Dec. ’99 and took a job as sales director for a great medium sized audiobook company, moving his family to New Hampshire for the job.
In early June, 2007, Feeter announced to his old windsurf industry associates he was coming back with what would be a quality windsurf photo publication that also covered the new sport of sup.
… Initially it was called “Standup surf & sail Journal,” a quarterly, high quality, perfect-bound, photo-driven journal on the stands each March, June, Sept. and Dec.
But the focus quickly went from covering “naturally-powered standup watersports” to just standup paddling… and the mag title was changed to just “Standup Journal.”

Joyce Bilodeau, Co-Publisher –York, Maine
Joyce Bilodeau is Standup Journal’s Co-Publisher, Orchestrator, Business Manager, and Clay’s wife, soul mate, and paddling partner. Joyce’s life history is defined by an array of outdoor activities including camping, hiking, running (including two marathons and the race up Mt. Washington), biking, kayaking, skiing and snowshoeing. Growing up on the water, both lakes and ocean, Ms. B. has always been secretly searching for her inner Gigit, wanting to surf since she was about eight years old. When she and Clay met, it was East meets West: the perfect fit. Together, along with more water time, Standup Journal also grew. While he was creating the Journal, she was a full-time nurse at Concord Hospital working in the operating room. As the Journal grew, “Bilodeau” eventually went from full-time to a part-time position at Concord Ambulatory Surgery Center, and finally working just one day a week as a nurse and full time as co-publisher of Standup Journal. Joyce says, “I love being a nurse and helping people, and am fortunate to be able to have two jobs I love.”

Glenn Dubock, Assoc. Publisher/Photo Editor – Santa Barbara, CA
His voicemail message at Santa Barbara’s Cottage Hospital says Dubock is the media services coordinator, but that’s just his day job. He is one of the preeminent watersports photographers on the scene today. Growing up in the West Coast surf culture and getting in on the ground floor of the windsurf and kitesurfing boom days, Dubock’s impactful coverage began even before he extensively photographed the ’84 Olympic Games. Glenn’s images depict a deep knowledge of the sport. In 1985 he shot the first cover for California Boardsailor, our mag that would eventually become Wind Tracks. “Dub” is about to celebrate his 30th wedding anniversary with Kathy.

Adam Champagne, Graphic Design/Marketing Director – Somerset, N.J.
Meet our graphic artist, webmaster and marketing director Adam Champagne.  Check out his work at adamchampagne.com  Adam is a New Hampshire native who went off to study graphic design in New Jersey and still lives there today. While attending college he ran the Jose Tejas Mexican restaurant, becoming a proud poppa to son Nicholas along the way, “The happiest single event in my life.” Adam picked up sup on his many trips to New England, quickly learning on the lakes, and advancing to wave riding. His other interests are playing his guitar, travel, hiking, and basically “anything outdoors.”
