Stand Up Paddle Boarding Videos
Watch the best SUP videos from around the world: From California to the Caribbean, Bora Bora to Brazil, the Gold Coast to the Gorge and everywhere in between.
Below you’ll find 500+ clips of stand up paddle boarding goodness, from downwinders to elite races to drones to helicopters to exotic locations and beyond.
Seems like it’s the month for paddletics.
First I posted about the ISA’s last-minute decision to host a World Championship in El Salvador next month, a move that left many paddlers scratching their heads. Then just last week it was revealed that several top athletes would be competing at the inaugural ICF Worlds in China. Oh and the whole political shit-fight apparently had its day in court in Switzerland recently.
Now we get to hear some unfiltered views from a couple of the top athletes about the whole idea of paddleboarding in the Olympics and which federation would best serve the sport. Connor Baxter and Zane Schweitzer chatted with Mike Jucker from Stand Up Magazin on Maui recently. Mike has been pushing this debate forward better than just about anyone, and he always tries to get an unbiased look at what’s happening.
The entire video is well worth a watch but if you want the quick summary: The paddlers think both federations need to lift their game.
Here’s a beautiful recap from the latest round of the Alpine Lakes Tour in Europe.
A few weeks ago, the Tour premiered a new concept called the “Alpine Paradise Race” high up in the Italian Alps. Competitors had to hike through the wilderness just to get to the start line, with the pre- and post-race festivities taking place in a mountain refuge hut. → READ MORE
Jeremy Riggs or Tom Cruise? Check out this great little clip from one of Maui’s original downwind supremos and now a fully-fledged foil fanatic. Filmed recently along the classic “Kihei” downwind run on Maui’s south side.
Must be watched with sound on 😂
(If you don’t get it, you’re too young.)
It’s exactly five years to the day since the Battle of the Paddle took over Salt Creek and gave us one of the most memorable races in the sport’s history.
After I posted that flashback photo this morning, I dug through the archives and found the video of the same wave. Oh the carnage. → READ MORE

Bruno Hasulyo has tightened his grip on a third SUP 11 City Tour title after once again breaking the field on the canals of Friesland. Bruno won today’s third stage by almost 10 minutes to extend his lead over the chase pack. The difference now stands at nearly half an hour–the rest of the boys are fighting for second place.
Conditions were near perfect on Friday for the “split-stage” — the day started with a 12km time trial (staggered starts, no drafting) and finished with a 30km group stage.
Lena Ribeiro from Brazil finally turned the arm-wrestle with Petronella van Malsen to her favour by gaining a minute in the TT, but the Mistral duo once again crossed the line together. It’ll all come down to Sunday’s 27km time trial.
Before then, we’ve got a 42km stage from Franeker to Dokkum on Saturday morning. Follow the race with the live GPS tracking map and regular updates on @sup11citytour Instagram.
I sat down with Angie Jackson and chatted about her recovery from injury, her crazy first race and what really gets said on the water ;-)
We also mentioned the very special collaboration between ONE and SUP Racer that will be revealed in the next few days. Something “unique” is headed for the 11 City Tour. → READ MORE
I’m very excited to share the second episode of Paddlecast with you today because it features my new favourite race – The Yukon River Quest – as well as a guy I’ve got the world of respect for, Bart de Zwart.
I sat down with the four-time Yukon champion and king of endurance paddling in Canada six weeks ago to record this conversation. We go into great detail (sometimes too much detail) to describe the physical highs and mental lows of this insane, 715km race. → READ MORE
I’m excited to be starting this new project and look forward to sharing some interesting paddle stories with you. And I’m very excited that the first episode features my good friend Casper Steinfath.
“The Viking” is one of the most interesting characters in the sport. He’s an incredibly accomplished athlete but what he does off the water is even more impressive. → READ MORE
We landed on the Greek Island of Corfu just before midnight.
We hadn’t booked a place to stay, but by 2am, and with the help of a friendly taxi driver, we had a room that slept four and a round of drinks with the owner of the local taverna.
And that pretty much set the tone for our week on the island. → READ MORE
Full replay of SUP Racer’s EuroTour live stream at the World SUP Festival in Costa Blanca, Spain, where Ty Judson and Olivia Piana were victorious.
Thanks for everyone that tuned in to watch! It was great to be back on the microphone. And a special thank you to Quickblade Paddles and VMG Blades for supporting our European Summer of SUP and making this whole show possible.
We experimented with a new “split-screen” format this week. Definitely still got a few things to iron out, but I think it was a creative step in the right direction and a great way to (finally) be able to give women equal coverage.
We’ll be back with another live stream in San Sebastian on June 1st, followed by Bilbao (June 8th), Corfu (June 15th), Crete (June 22nd) and Prague (July 6th).

We’ve just finished a fun little trip to Denmark for the premiere of Casper Steinfath’s new film Skagerrak. If you’ve read my review, you’ll know I was already really impressed with this movie, but to see it on the big screen made it even more powerful.
And of course, it was Denmark, so the whole trip was a fun adventure!
Watch Casper’s Viking Vlog for a little behind-the-scenes edit of the weekend, including a little cameo from yours truly and SUP Racer’s new partner-in-crime, Trevor Tunnington. Not shown: Trevor’s epic dancefloor victory at the after-party
Everyone’s favourite Viking is coming back to the big screen: SKAGGERAK, the movie about Casper Steinfath’s epic crossing from Denmark to Norway, will premiere in early May. → READ MORE
