Round 1:   August 27th 2017
What a PLEASANT surprise this race was! Who would have thought that the predicted rain and strong chilly winds would turn into an absolute pearler! Great turn out and lots of smiles all round. Awesome effort everyone in what were the usual, wonderfully challenging conditions off Balmoral. Great to catch up with everyone again and looking forward to a great season of SUP-X racing ahead. #balmoralSUPXracing

SPRING HAS SPRUNG

Near perfect conditions for the first day of spring so we had to hit the water and try put some new gear from SUNOVA SUP – the new 14′ FAAST and 14′ FAAST Ocean

SUNOVA 10’6 SURF in action

This is one four favourite all-round SUP boards for those looking for extra performance both on a wave and touring. The SUNOVA SURF 10’6 ECO  is full wood board which oozes SUNOVA quality. The beauty of this board is that it balances the needs of the all-round paddler (nice glide) with exceptional surfing ability. 10’6 is a great size if you are looking for just one board to offers the best of both worlds for touring and surfing. The ECO wood (Blue) construction from SUNOVA is one of the most beautiful crafted boards on the market. Full Wood. Exceptional weights and a full set of glass fins. Normally $1799 we have this board on special for at $1499. There are only a couple left but they represent excellent value for a quality board with performance. Add a SUNOVA Nalu Sliver wave paddle for just $240 (RR$299) The SUNOVA SURF 10’6 is also available in XXX Balsa – $2199

GOOGLE SUP TRENDS

Who would have thought it! The most searched terms on Google relating to Stand Up Paddleboarding are ‘Orlando Bloom paddleboarding’, ‘Taylor Swift paddleboarding’ and ‘Amy Schumer paddleboarding’. Great to see the coolest of bods enjoying our sport! Google SUP stars

SUNOVA SUP SOUTH COAST SOJOURN

July 2016 We headed south in July this year with the SUNOVA SURFBOARD team to check out their new SUP boards and paddles for this coming season. Even though we only had small waves we managed to find a peak tucked under a cliff in the corner of a beautiful south coast beach.

CRUISING CROATIA

July 2016 It has been an incredibly chilly winter down here in Australia this year. Balmoral Paddlesurf, head-honcho, Andrew Allen was lucky enough to escape to the warmth cruising in Croatia and the Amalfi Coast/ Italy. Here is one of his favourite activities – Sea Cliffing! Looking forward to some Sea Cliff exploring from my Stand Up Paddleboard this Summer! Your SUP can take you anywhere!

IT’S WHALE WATCHING SEASON

July 2016 Keep your eye out for these beautiful creatures that will be cruising the East Coast of Australia this Winter. We were lucky enough to come across this playful creature in Sydney Harbour last August. There is no better way to go Whale Watching than on a Stand Up Paddleboard!

SUP YOGA. WHY?

June 2016 “Yoga on the water takes away the walls and the ground and open up the experience to what is above and below. Float along and see what comes next…” Unless you have seen it in action it is hard to wrap your head around SUP YOGA. If ever you needed convincing that this off-shoot of the Stand Up Paddle boarding was legit, watch this beautiful video. Yoga on water – surrounded by the studio of life
