Who’s Your Favorite Paddle Partner

A Valentine’s Expo

It’s Valentine’s month and here at Standup Journal we are celebrating by featuring you and your favorite standup paddle partner in our photo contest.

Congratulations Nabila for Winning the Photo Contest With Your Photo of the Inspirational Vitor!

Vitor PrudencioVitor has 21 years old now! When he was 15-years-old, he had a stroke and became paralyzed.

He was a young boy that loved to surf so after 3 years of rehab, we started thinking how we could help him get back on the water.

With the help of his father (the board designer) and a great friend and sup shaper, they planned this adaptable chair to install on a standup paddleboard board.

Now Vitor is practicing SUP and his mobility is improving tremendously.

We entered our homemade chair in a contest and we finished in 2nd place over almost 300 hundred other projects.

Vitor now has a channel in YouTube called Vitor Prudi which shows him practicing lots of activities including his favorite sport…sup!

He shows us that everything is possible when you do what you love.

He loves SUP!!!
