That is pretty rad - I cant wait to try SUP next summer! Seeing those pics of CKS'ers getting to offseason SUP in the backyard makes me miss the Ark valley for sure.

I live near a river but would also like to take it to the ocean sometimes. Would I get an inflatable? When I was at the beach this week, they had never herd of an inflatable SUP. Can anyone give advice.

For the river, you want a inflatable version. And yes these rip in the ocean too.

They work ok in the ocean. I wouldn't say rip. They cave a bit. They are better suited for the river. A hard/shaped board will be best for true surfing. Sure an inflatable will work in the waves (I have used mine in chest high waves) but a non-inflatable will work best in the ocean. It depends on how much performance you want.

Just moved back to Colorado after a 5 year stint in SoCal. Lived at the beach and surfed alot, consequently getting into paddlesurfing kinda ground level.

Really jazzed to be here ground level too.

I brought back 2 downwind boards, 2 "short" surfing boards and an ULI to try to hurt myself on the rivers. Started making boards because no one was doing the kind of board/surfing I wanted to do. Met Dan Gavere that way. He likes em' so I guess they are all right.

Im in Fort Collins and always looking for people to paddle with. No board/paddle? No worries, I gots.

Also looking to start running rivers in the spring, the closest to me is the poudre, but it looks kinda sharp and fast.... where's a good place to go screw around on I maybe II, I like swimming...

So, if youre around this way, hit me up and lets talk about paddling. Im pretty stoked on it.
