I know a lot of class 5 kayakers who love their subarus. That doesn't mean a subaru is an appropriate tool for whitewater...
The posts above are mostly just having a laugh, but anyone who seriously thinks SUP is cutting edge doesn't know what's going on. Anyone that seriously thinks a SUP will out perform a strider setup in rapids doesn't know whats going on. SUPs can paddle flat water fast and surf. Apparently this happens too which is pretty cool.
