What’s SUP? Cleaning your Paddle Gear

You know, even I can get a little tired of the cold weather. So I’ll grab my stand-up paddleboard and head down to warmer locales, like by the ocean.

Before I hit the ocean I always check the fins and leash plug to make sure there aren’t any small plant pieces. I also have a towel to wipe off the board and let dry out for five days before heading to a new spot. I learned these and more paddle tips from the pros at PlayCleanGo.

Whether I’m riding the waves at a friendly surf break or paddling in the early morning calm, there is a transcendental connection with the ocean beneath.
