WELCOME TO RIOT STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDS, OUR NEW REBRANDED NAME. THE WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

hello

Combat on the Ammer

I was fortunate enough to get to take the new inflatable Combat onto the Ammer river in the Germany alps with some great local paddlers. The water was low, and it wasn’t an exceptionally hard section of river, but it was a great testing ground for the board, and confirmed that this is going to be a great success – solving the issues that have plagued inflatable river running SUP since their beginning¬† -swamping, flexing, hard to handle and control, requiring far greater skills to use than the (albeit heavier) plastic boards out there. This one truly is magic!.

Paddle Expo – Nurnberg Germany

What an amazing week I had at the Paddle Expo. It wasn’t all easy – in fact started off quite rough with Air Canada refusing point blank to take my three boards on the flight (despite the excess baggage having been pre paid). So a rush to delta cargo to “overnight” ship them and I was on my flight. Unfortunately, the boards arrived one by one during the show, and two never arrived at all (ending up in Bogota Columbia I think). But despite not having all the boards, it was a great show and we made many contacts. it was my first introduction into the European market under the new brand, and it was well received – especially the inflatable boards. And of course, after the show… off to do some paddling in the alps!.

Sup Surfing the English Gardens

“Sitting in the English Gardens, waiting for the sun…”

Everyone knows the Beatles song… but in the English gardens or Munich, Germany is also a surf wave, and today I got to surf it. I borrowed a board from my friend Carsten Kurmis, put on my brand spanking new Jenga wetsuit, and off we went…

The wave itself was pretty bleak… water is low and it was barely in (think California in summer), but it was something, so I was happy to get out and surf. However, my 3mm wetsuit was overkill… I was sweating like a pig!!

I also got a chance to try out our new Cobalt paddle for the first time surfing… I’d used it a bunch just general paddling, but this was my first surf with it. Really nice, I must say, for an inexpensive plastic paddle!.
