UNBOXING: world's smallest SUP?!
This is the new 9'6 "Compact" from Red Paddle Co (aka "The World's Smallest Paddleboard"). It's a pretty impressive piece of engineering. Watch this fun little unboxing we did in Austria recently for a closer look!

I got the chance to play with the crazy new “Compact” board from Red Paddle Co (aka the world’s smallest stand up paddle board) after the Dragon World Championships in Austria next month.
This thing fits in a backpack. I mean a real backpack. It’s a bit of a game-changer…
This thing isn’t as cheap as Red’s other boards, but if you love to travel it’s kinda priceless. World’s first carry-on SUP? The 9’6″ Red Compact will start shipping next month. Click here to see if you can still pre-order one of the first boards.
Czech Republic RIVER RACE! (GoPro POV)
Good times at the Krumlovsky vodacky maraton in the Czech Republic last week! More than 1,300 paddlers hit the water for a crazy fun river race — add it to your bucket list in 2019 (Oct. 12). Thanks to the local crew David, Lucie and Peter for showing me a good time and lending me a "Puma" from NSP – Surf and Stand Up Paddle Boards — hope I didn't put too many dings in it

I was lucky enough to experience a very special race in the Czech Republic last week thanks to NSP and The Paddle League.
The Krumlovsky River Race is a unique event featuring over a thousand paddlers and one super fun stretch of river. The 25km, downriver course features half a dozen “weirs” that turn this into a whitewater rodeo and, at least on the bigger ramps, provide the amazing feeling of paddling downhill.
With a GoPro in my mouth, I thought I’d share this little highlights reel from my run on the NSP Puma (the 14′ by 23.5″ race board handled surprisingly well in the river). Hope you enjoy, and apologies for the awkward heavy breathing…
Add this event to your bucket list next year: October 12, 2019.

Paddling with icebergs in ICELAND (…the lost footage)
12 months ago, I explored Iceland with Starboard Stand Up Paddle Surfing and enjoyed one of the most surreal paddling experiences of my life. Two weeks later, I crashed my drone into a cliff in Italy and thought the footage was lost forever. This week we stumbled upon an old backup, and now I think it's time for another adventure…

Short little highlights reel (and a few interviews) from the super fun kids race in Bilbao last weekend. Always so inspiring to see the next generation having fun on the water!
BILBAO from above (DRONE footage)
Stunning footage from Bilbao thanks to our friends at Rapid SUP
BACK STORY: Rapid is a new brand from Ukraine, and the guys drove 3000km to be part of the events in Bilbao and Hossegor. Five minutes into the race in Bilbao their drone hit a bridge and crashed into the river; everyone assumed it was lost forever, but they found some goggles, went swimming and miraculously recovered the drone and the raw footage. Thanks for the extreme commitment to getting the shots, guys!

The EuroTour is the funnest part of the season, and we’ll be there from week 3 onwards with our regular live streams. In the meantime, here’s an awesome look back at last year’s Tour thanks to the Starboard crew 🇪🇺☀️💦🤙
Here’s a great look at the Rei de Búzios, one of Brazil’s longest-running SUP races and something of a preview for this year’s ISA Worlds.
While we’re a little late in posting the vid (it went up two months ago), it’s worth taking a second look now because it’s not only a cool edit, this clip also previews what is [potentially] going to be the course for this year’s gold-medal marathon race in late November. → READ MORE
