SUP Camping 101

Standup Paddle Camping Basics Most people are at least somewhat familiar with kayak touring...using a longer kayak with water tight hatches to stow gear to essentially camp out of. But  a lot of folks don't realize you can tour with your paddleboard as well...with some...

What Not to Wear (While Paddleboarding)

Hopefully Stacy and Clinton from What Not to Wear will never show up at my house with a camera. I guess being a freelancer means the only "coworker" who could turn me in is my dog, and she likes to go naked, anyway, so...

Gear Review: ENO Nomad Hammock Stand

ENO Nomad Hammock Stand
