surfsup: Here's what I think I've learned so far about so-called RESPECT: 1. SAFETY first. Plenty of waves; one set of teeth. 2. CONTROL. Equip myself with gear I can control. Don't put myself in situations without contingencies; maintain my "cushion," etc. (This includes considering the projectile range of my weapon of choice... 6' board + 6' leash + kookspace = 12+' radius. 6' paddle @ one end + 6' rider + 9' leash + 9' board @ the other end+ kookspace = 30+' radius... or likely more if I yard sale down the line.) 3. CULTURAL AWARENESS. Gain perspective from different conditions. Know the written & unspoken rules of each zone. Learn respect / patience / tolerance / understanding & own up. Don't just bodyB, kayak, LB, SB or SUP and think you "get it." 4. DON'T BE THAT KOOK. Examples: FOAM-BALLERS - Shoulder-hoppers that take off beyond the bowl / from the shoulder without realizing they have just collapsed the section for the rider on the inside. Cherry-pickers that vie for the ride beyond the fair bowl / mass line-up to catch a wave. Bulldozers, backdoorers, yard salers... 5. ALOHA. Right-of-way only exists when yielded to me. I am personally OK with sharing, but only when the other rider/s can SAFELY control his gear & not kook out. Yes it's OK if other riders do not wish to share that hard-earned wave...

surfsup: For every 1,000 hours of SUP, there is an injury rate of 3.63%, the majority of which occur in the shoulder or upper arm. Shoulder impingement is one of these injuries, which can occur from overuse, poor posture or injury. If you have difficulty carrying out your shoulder’s full range of movement, rest and apply ice to the affected area, taking note of the progression of the condition and seeking help so as to nip the problem in the bud.

surfsup: Find the right paddle for you. What this means is to find a paddle with the proper length in proportion to your height as well as having the correct blade size. If you have a paddle that is too long or too short, or too big or too small, it can hinder your performance potential and can even cause injury. A loose rule you can follow to make sure the paddle is the right length is to place a "shaka" above your head and use that added length to measure your paddle up to.

surfsup: We’ve heard many myths about inflatable sup boards. Let’s take the most popular one – durability, and check out if the inflatable paddle boards last for a long time or no. The short answer – yes, they are super durable and will last you for many years. But at the same time, it’s a bit more complicated. Why? Well, there are multiple points to consider.
surfsup: After you have all the gear you want to take with you, take the time to pack and repack. Maybe rolling your sleeping bag a different way can save space. Your snacks might be able to fit into a smaller bag. Rearranging your dry bag differently could make it easier to grab things on the go when needed. Try different options until you are certain you’ve found the best system.

surfsup: Well, sort off. It’s a bit more complicated than that, but there is some truth in it. A high-quality product will not come cheap. Many think that they should be way cheaper than solid boards. But in reality, inflatable stand up paddle boards come at a similar price point. If we return to pricing, we can split them into three price groups (cheap, medium, and premium).

surfsup: What makes this paddle board a fantastic value is that it’s made by ISLE Surf and SUP – a top-notch iSUP manufacturer – but it’s marketed under the PEAK brand. While the PEAK brand lacks the name recognition of an ISLE SUP, it still offers the same quality and durability of all ISLE paddle boards at a fraction of the price.
