Whitewater SUP, New Zealand with Paul Clark

SUP athlete Paul Clark has a great history with stand up paddle river riding. From the whitewater challenge of Oregon, where he was a part of Kialoa’s brainstorm to create the Big Eddy paddle, to New Zealand where – in this video – he hits some of the iconic rivers of our time.

New Zealand stand up paddlers will dream the day away with this vid as Paul challenges the Kawaray, Rangitata, Kaituna, Buller and the Victor Wero White Water Park.

Stick with it to the end, as Paul tries to stick that landing.  It’s well worth the 2-minute ride.
