As the weather turns from spring to summer in the northern hemisphere, paddlers around the world are dusting off gear for their preferred paddlesport. Whether or not we braved the cold of winter, from stand up paddleboards to fishing kayaks, whitewater kayak to canoes, touring boats to surf skis, with warmer weather and rising rivers comes the irresistible thirst to get outside, soak up some sun, grab a paddle, and immerse ourselves in the outdoors. And, while there are many reasons why people paddle one thing is true for all of us. We love to paddle. We live to paddle. This is one reason why we release our annual SUP World Mag/Paddle World Mag in celebration of our love of Paddlesports and its culture. Every year, the magazine aims to laud notable…

exploring the diverse beauty of switzerland’s lakes by sup

It feels like we are paddling through a Swiss fairy tale; the Alps tower overhead and little villages cling to the cliffs as the lake presses in from all sides. However, it is the castle that demands all of our attention. It sits alone on the shore no more than a kilometer away. With each paddle stroke, the distance between us remains, as if the castle lies suspended on a gigantic canvas. This is one of the luxuries of Stand Up Paddling: nothing moves fast. Everything slows down; there is time to look around, to feel nature and count one’s blessings. SWITZERLAND : A LAND OF PRECISION AND BEAUTY Switzerland is known for its precision, and nothing exemplifies this more than its train system. As we depart Zurich main station bound for…

adventure with a purpose

“Eight million pieces of plastic enter our oceans every day!” I was born in Wales, where my childhood was filled with adventure; I was wild camping at three weeks old and grew up swimming in the sea, climbing trees, exploring the gwyllt, and hiking up mountains. I was fascinated by the sea. My mother joked that I was a little mermaid, for being close to the water made me sparkle and shine, and made it her mission to educate me about the environment. She told me that I had a voice and inspired me to reduce my impact on the environment by boycotting certain brands, teaching that positive change was possible even by doing something small. During my 20s I headed to London to work in advertising. Immersed in the hustle and…

exploring the sup paradise of cape town, south africa

Hanging off the bottom of the African continent and curling into the southern ocean like a crooked index finger is the Cape Peninsula. It’s a popular myth that here, on the fingertip of Africa, you can see a line where the Indian and Atlantic Oceans meet. We’re perched on the granite boulders of Miller’s Point, but there is no line in the sea. The real meeting point for these two oceans is actually a few hundred miles to the east, at Cape Agulhas. Even if there were a line, we wouldn’t be able to see it, thanks to the raging southeast wind that’s blowing crushed whitecaps across False Bay. “There’s going to be some good runs!” shouts Thomas King, as our small crew strikes out from the lee of the protected bay…
