New SUPlove boards and SUPlove's First Sale!

They are finally here!  SUPlove has gotten their first set of boards to the US and we were lucky enough to try them out and help get their first sale!  More exciting things to come from SUPlove!  I tried the 8'10" x 28.5" Challenger model and I found it to be very stable, agile, and super fun to surf.  The 9'4" Mach1 is it's big brother and would be an ideal SUP surf board for someone between 140-180 lbs, while the 8'5" Challenger seems to be an ideal board for someone under 160lbs.  At 145lbs, I find the Challenger to be an ideal board.  


Malibu Stand Up Paddle Surfing - Jon and Chris

Back in August, Chris and I brought the camera out to a fun day in Malibu.  This is more of a beach break wave with a bit more speed than where we normally go.  This wave has inspired me to go to a shorter board (right now I ride the 9'6" Naish).  On days like today, and 8 foot something would have been awesome!  I'm considering a few boards - if anyone has had any experience on them, please let me know - the Gerry Lopez Little Darlin' 8'11", Naish 8'10" Hokua, and the new starboard 8'5" TAC (no deck needed). Enjoy the video :) and go check out the Barbarellatones - a local Malibu band (I run into the lead singer in Malibu at the various Starbucks between my appointments).
