Image    It’s time for the Editor’s blog at Stand up paddle surfing fever is everywhere. It seems that every surfer I talk with has it in mix to give it a try. Last week I was in California checking the scene over there and I had one day to do it all. Where did I end up first? Dana Point.    

    After a burrito and an hour of driving way too fast south of LA, I arrived at Infinity Surfboards, Inc. Towering overhead like a temple unto surfing I stood in awe soaking up the good vibe before going inside. But there was more. Glowing through the cathedral window facing the road, shone an impressive lineup of stand up paddle surfboards. It was time to go in. Infinity surfboards is one of those places that just demands reverence. There were endless boards neatly lined up begging to be purchased. I was lucky enough have a few minutes with the legend Steve Boehne. Not only is he full of stoke, he’s an awesome shaper. He had just finished a group of 10′6′ Ku Ku Hoe stand up paddle surfboards and they’re ready for the water. If you need one, contact him. The boards can be shipped anywhere. He’s working on some really exciting things for the SUP community. Look for an article coming soon on his theory behind the board and what he has in the mix for SUP surfing. Meanwhile check out for boards and pics. Thanks Steve.


Image    Next it was a quick stop at a little surf shop called Killer Dana for a chat with some of the local boys. Although there were no SUP surfers in the shop. The prone-paddle surfers that I spoke with said that the guys who are out there with the SUP boards are respectful of the other surfers. Good on ya’! Let’s keep it that way.


 Image   The last stop in Dana Point was Hobie. Hobie started producing stand up paddle surfboards 4-5 months ago. As soon as they started producing them, they were selling like mad. They have about 6 demo boards for rent and rarely is there one on the rack because they’re always out in the water. At a quick glance Hobie’s boards seemed great for a heavier surfer or someone looking for extra glide.


    Stand up paddle surfing is in full swing in Southern California. Next time I’ll be taking a quick trip to LA to see what I can find. See you then! …100% Pure Stoke!
