I first experienced sup in 2006 when I purchased the very first sup paddle that Kialoa produced. It was all aluminum, and I used a 12-foot Greg Loehr Longboard for my first meager attempts to figure out what Laird was talking about. It was very difficult due to the 23-inch width of the board and the fact that there were no instructions back then.
The standup evolution, for me, started with a complete collection of the Surftech Donald Takayama boards. Starting on the 11’3”, I progressed over a short amount of time to the 10’3”, then the 9’8”, 9’4”, 8’8” and settled finely on the 8’4” as my everyday sup wave rider. In 2010 I had my right hip re-surfaced, and I used sup as a huge part of my rehabilitation. Using a Surftech 12’6” BARK, I began with 3- to 4-mile paddles, and steadily worked up to 6–10 milers over a year’s time. As my hip grew stronger I realized how much better I was surfing due to the increased fitness of my core, shoulders and legs from consistent suping.
Now here I am 10 years after my first sup experience, and I cannot believe the growth the sport has achieved and the future potential still to be achieved! As a child of the skateboard revolution back in the ‘60s and ‘70s, I can compare the growth of sup to that era. Gradually sup has introduced surfing inland! Skateboarding introduced surfing to inland dwellers; certainly not the same demographic, but inland nonetheless! Skateboarding attracted the non-conformists and social outcasts while sup is doing exactly the opposite. Suddenly tri-athletes, adventure racers, cyclists, trainers and fitness-minded people became interested in sup! This is the demographic that skateboarding never appealed to! Sup racks on cars and pickups are now everywhere from coast to coast.
Plans for 2017? The sport hasn’t even begun to plateau, but the rapid change in equipment is definitely difficult for the different brands to keep up without losing money due to outdated inventory. I’m fortunate, as the Indo Board designs are not subject to that product evolution. The Indo Yoga Board that I designed specifically for the sup yoga market is still growing and will continue to be an important part of our product mix. The importance of balance training, as an important aspect of the whole sup experience, will never go away, and I look forward to continuing to be an active part of the sup community.
Biggest surprise? The huge development of inflatables across the whole spectrum of sup board designs. I never thought inflatables could be as large a market segment as they have become.
