SUP The US National Whitewater Center

Here is a news article about SUP on The US National Whitewater Center Course. Check out the article here with some video clips of the action:
Ride Stride - News
The whitewater course is a perfect place for getting better at SUP in whitewater. The pool drop senario works really well for whitewater SUP. The M wave rapid is a very surfable wave as well.


Going up the conveyor belt on a SUP...more pics in the article.

They allowing it now? We went there on our boards a couple of years ago on special permission. Be awesome if they opened it up for all boarders.

I think they will.

I think they will eventually. Especially with SUPs wearing full face, knee and elbow protection. I didn't feel like I needed any extra protection but... if that was the requirement it would keep everyone that much safer. They just need to see a demand and ammunition for allowing it. They don't want to turn anyone away if they don't have to.
