I was talking with Mike at Wet Dreams River Supply last weekend and the conversation got turned off rafts and turned on to SUP. He told me he just got a board and was really enjoying it. I never really considered SUP would be for me, but now I am reconsidering it.
With still needing more equipment for the raft and hoping to move to CO next year for guide school/job, I won't be able to afford an actual SUP setup for quite a while. I just found out yesterday about street SUP. Now I know this isn't the same as actually being on the water, but does it work the same muscles in the same way as an actual SUP?
I use to enjoy my Sector 9 long board before it was stolen, and I figure I can pick up a used long board and street paddle for a couple hundred. So wat are your thoughts on street SUP? Any suggestions on boards/paddles?
