What does it mean to PUSH? To move outside of one’s comfort zone and ask the body to give MORE and MORE over distance, over time. In this stunning new video by Lee Visuals (creator of Wild Coast, a sup surfer’s dream of sliding along the Tofino coastline), creator Kelsey Lee Thompson explores the dynamic between paddler and ride, equipment versus engine to show how distance work is done.
Supported by Blackfish Paddles and ONE Sup, this is a ride you’ll remember.
