About 71 percent of the world is covered with water. Here’s a great way to get out and explore it! SUPs are fun, efficient, and easy to use, but buying a paddle board can be complicated. There are so many choices. There are inflatable boards, river boards, race boards, surf boards and everything in between. I’ve tried dozens of boards, and found the Boardworks Kraken to be everything I need and more.
Last year, Slovenia company SipaBoards introduced the first SUP with integrated jet-propulsion system. This year, the company follows up that award winning design with a self-inflating SUP. Using a built-in compressor and automatic gauge, the inflatable SUP does all the work for you. Just sit back, relax, and get ready to hit the water.
While testing women's SUP gear last fall, I took my KEEN Clearwater CNX sandals down to meet their birthplace in Clearwater, FL. Similar to the new Chaco NearGround collection, the KEEN CNX line has everything you love about KEEN footwear, but lightened up for your summer adventures. With an agenda full of SUP, bike riding, and beach walking, these hybrid sandals were put through their paces.
