Big Winds says: You can paddle all year long!

Global Partner

The Big Winds team won’t stop paddling just because the weather gets colder.  They know it’s all about the gear.  Good gear surmounts cold temps every time.  Here’s their latest video showcasing the Starboard Sup Suit, a true revolution in the game of sup.

Starboard Sup Suit:  A way to stay out there for winter paddling

Big Winds again shows us the gear in its greatest light.  In this  video, TJ surprises the neighbors by pulling out his stand up race board when everyone else is thinking of skiing and/or snowboarding.

How can we get out on the water in cold weather?  TJ knows it’s about his gear, specifically, the Starboard Sup Suit which insulates  body heat at the same time as it allows ample movement.  Designed specifically for paddling, this dry suit can make it easier to stay on the water late into the season and get back out there in the spring to do what you love.

Thanks Big Winds!  Always appreciate the knowledgeable content from safety, to fin set up and equipment reviews.
