Corn has been genetically tampered, high-fructose syruped, modified, starched and finally labeled as a carcinogen. (Plump kernels, though.) And surfing has become a battle. Earlier this week, a video surfaced of a grown man tackling another grown man off his surfboard. Last week, a video surfaced of a grown man in a wetsuit punching another grown man in a wetsuit.

    Swiss surfers take advantage of swelling river to go flood surfing in Switzerland. Photo is a screen grab from the video Think Switzerland and one of the last things that come to mind is surfing. Skiing, sure. But surfing? Considering the tiny country is landlocked, finding waves to ride would seem to be an impossible task. That is, unless there’s a lot of rain. That has been the case lately, causing the river Thur to flood and thereby creating powerful standing river waves. Two Swiss surfers took advantage of the situation and the folks from Schizo-Vreni Food and Travel videotaped them…

    Coconut water. You either love it or hate it. I happen to absolutely adore it for quite a few reasons. Lets list a few shall we. Coconut H2O is… • Packed with amino acids, electrolytes, potassium • Flushes out excess body fluids, free radicals, and toxins. • Rejuvenates body cells • Cleans your digestive tract • All natural and sugar free • Cures hangovers • Helps with blood circulation • Good for your kidneys …and MOST of all, if you are drinking coconut water straight-out of an actual coconut, this means you are more than likely somewhere warm and tropical.

He was a friend, mentor, and colleague. He was also way ahead of his time. Way back in the early 1980s, when Sonny was in junior high school, he and his north San Diego County friends began…

I took a few shots, but these are the best and most easily identified by the rider & board if he sees them. Maybe someone can let him know they’re here. Thanks for the page.

    At Surfline, they featured photos of Puerto Escondido from this last big swell.  Now, Puerto is not my kind of wave.  Beach breaks are fine for smaller clean days, but Puerto on a swell is a whole different beast.  And the men who ride Puerto when it is like this are wired differently.  However, I would love to watch it from the safety of the beach.The picture above is proof of the capabilities of this beach break.  I thought the photo was Photoshopped when I saw it.

  • How to Look for & Understand Tidal Current

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    25 Jul 2014 | 3:03 pm
    Here on Puget Sound near Seattle, tidal currents are a big part of paddling.  If you want to get somewhere in a timely manner, learning how to work with rather than against the currents is essential. The question is, how do know how to look for currents?  Here's a few tips..- Go online for Current tables. Type in your location with something like "Deception Pass currents".  A variety of options will appear giving you the info needed.  I like Mobile Graphics and NOAA as they give me an easy to read list of flows.  Some like a visual graph instead of a list. I also…
  • Inflatable SUPs - All the Rage but Sometimes Difficult to Get Back On

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    20 Jul 2014 | 2:20 pm
    I love everthing I see about the inflatable SUPs coming out.  They don't require a car rack, are great for folks living in apartments, commuting, travelling for business, or who don't want to or can't carry a heavy fiberglass or plastic board.  The better products are as stiff as epoxy boards, equally as fast but offer a soft landing if you fall on the deck. A downside I recently came across recently is being able to get back on the 6" thick inflatables.  I had a student in moving water who is a good paddler but couldn't get back on her board without assistance.  She had…
  • Finding Used SUP Boards

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    16 Jul 2014 | 10:40 am
    I get several calls a week from students and others seeking used paddle boards.  Not only does it show the sport is popular but that retail priced boards are also expensive.  While most epoxy and inflatable boards are expensive to make, most are over priced.  The market is hot, so manufacturers can get away with it.  My 17' carbon sea kayak with 3 storage hatches, deck hardware is still a better buy than most carbon race boards which are just fiberglass or carbon wrapped over foam.  The downside is that most folks can't afford new boards. Folks regularly ask me if I…
  • Do You have a Race Strategy?

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    15 Jul 2014 | 5:00 pm
    A few years ago Dan Gavere was visiting and participated in a local weekly race.  When the race started most of the racers followed one of our local guys who usually wins.  This route was straight towards the turn-a-round buoy directly upwind in open water with knee to waist high wind waves.Dan on the other hand took a completely sheltered route with no wind or waves which instead was curved vs straight. When the sheltered section ended, Dan was clearly ahead of our local fast racer, and the rest of the pack.  Not only was he ahead, he had more energy left since the sheltered…
  • Always Test Your Rack

    Rob Casey - SUP Instructor, Photographer & Guidebook Writer
    7 Jul 2014 | 12:10 am
    I carry anywhere from 1 to 8 boards on my Subaru Forester for my SUP classes and tours. A few are surprised by the loads I carry.  But before every trip I test my rack with a shake test to assure the rack itself is secure to the car, then I load and secure the boards. Yesterday while loading only one board, the rack tower attachment pulled off the car roof rail. Luckily I was in my alley not yet on the road.  The attachments been on the car since 2006, so definitely time for replacement.  I replaced the remaining 3 towers (Yakima) for preventative maintenance. Here's an image…

    I was going through my photo archives and came across these pictures that I took last summer in the middle of July. This is a mountain lion that was about 10 feet behind my house as it walks around and then settled down in a nearby bush. It was an extremely hot day and I imagine it just wanted to relax in the shade.It was a big ordeal with the Orange County Sheriffs Department Deputies rushing to the scene to ensure everyone's safety, with Fish & Game close behind. While seeing wildlife is nothing new for us, seeing a mountain lion was quite a surprise. I just wonder how many times he has…

In the coming weeks, I plan to expand to Los Angeles, Orange County and San Diego. The boards listed below all seem to be in great condition without any structural issues or major dings. In addition, they are competitively priced and are a great alternative to buying a brand new board for $600+. I look for boards that…

    With multiple sources, including Stab Magazine & Surf Europe, reporting that Jeremy Flores started a verbal and physical altercation with ASP judges after his close heat loss at Jeffery's Bay; it is only a waiting game until the ASP hands down some form of punishment. A decision which is being discussed and contemplated as we speak.This is a serious offense and the punishment could range from a monetary fine to a suspension for the ASP World Tour. From the information that has been posted online since this ordeal, I personally think Jeremy Flores should be suspended from the ASP World…

    Riding Bumps SUP Race Training

  • Q and A: distance training for a 15 year old?

    24 Jul 2014 | 2:54 pm
    I am an up and coming sponsored SUP racer from Miami, Florida.I will be competing in my first BOP this year, as well as my second year at the Chattajack 31 mile distance race. I want to make sure I’m in top shape for these two races since they are the biggest races of the year for me. With my dad being an exercise physiologist I am currently getting the all around training I need, but the only problem is we don’t know if we are doing to much or to little. My dad has encouraged me to read Riding Bumps since he has already finished the book and believes that it is VERY important I…

    Question: Good morning, I am looking to purchase one of your ebooks to start training. In october I have registered for both Battle of the Paddle and the Chattajack 31 stand up paddle races. This has me kind of confused on what training route I should take with the BOP being sprint and medium distance and then the Chattajack being a long distance flat water SUP race. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. Hmmmm….Good question right there. You stumbled on one of the issues that every coach wrestles with.

  • Prone Paddleboarding Stroke Rate

    mattwright
    1 Jul 2014 | 5:15 am
    Question: I’m a prone paddleboarder who rides an 18’10 unlimited board with outstanding glide.  I was wondering about the relationship between stroke rate, speed, and glide. Specifically, how much time should I “pause”between strokes to maximize the glide potential of the board.  For example, I find that in interval training my stroke rate might be near max, but my speed is less than that attained after I stop paddling and the glide sets in.  I’m also interested to hear how other paddlers use stroke rates during races—ten strokes and glide, more, less, etc.  Finally, I notice…
