From pushing boundaries to realigning with the planet, Standup Journal’s FALL21 issue is a deep dive into thinking consciously about our water playgrounds and how we can maximize our performance on the water. We hear from Casey Kiernan, winner of this year’s Crossing for Cystic Fibrosis on how she championed the 80-mile paddle crossing across the Florida straits from Bimini in the Bahamas to Lake Worth, Florida. Her answer? Nutrition! Next, we follow Zane Kekoa Schweitzer as he scores a few massive barrels in Puerto Escondido, Mexico. Into foiling? Your mind will be blown in the data-driven article from the boys at Wake Thief about the science behind learning how to pump and foil…. well, forever. Then, it’s a query into pushing the surf industry towards sustainable board making and resin design from our Associate Publisher, Russ Scully. Good things on the horizon! Next, we join the water tribe in Sheboygan Wisconsin to explore the world of winter surfing on the Great Lakes. We’ll talk about retreats in Turks & Caicos with World Champion paddle boarder Candice Appleby. Lastly, our Fall issue wraps up with an image-rich, detailed dive into a New Zealand-by-water excursion by Rachael Z. Miller, founder of the Rozalia Project for a Clean Ocean.
We are honored to gather water lovers from around the globe to meet HERE, on Standup Journal’s pages, to share their passion for watersports and the lifestyle celebrated with some of the finest watersports photography working on the planet today.
