I heard the Coast Guard|
Posted by: mjamja on Oct-02-12 9:02 PM (EST)
is going to be pushing for banning all paddle craft except SUP's. In addition the legislation will include provisions that only professional models or those that could be professional models will be allowed to paddle them. Additionally, all male paddlers will be required to be topless (no PFD's) and all female paddlers must be in bikinis (no PFD's). An internal survey at the Coast Guard showed that under those circumstances the Coast Guard would not mind any additional rescues required. SUP rescue duty is also likely to become a popular junket for state and federal legislators if the legislation passes.
THAT IS NOT FAIR!|

I tried my first SUP at ECCK 2008. Not liking the demo paddles, I used my home carved GP to propel myself with clothes and style about the lake. I hear-by claim all past, present and future rights and profits from the next big thing in paddle sports, GP^SUP.

Don't know about what's next...|

...but SUP is still in the growth and rapid evolution phase. And I barely see any of them on the used market yet.

"Carp Pull Tunneling"|
Posted by: DUUJ on Oct-03-12 8:42 PM (EST)
Find a very large cooperative carp. Ask him (or her) to hang onto your tow rope. Hold your breath and head toward all those tunnels that everyone told you to never go into with your kayak....let alone your SUP.
The SUP won't fade away, but...|

the paddle will be replaced with an ultralite gas powered weed-whacker with a propeller on the end!
why motorized SUPs, of course!|

SUPs are pretty cool and will definitely be around for many years to come.
