A few months back we published a tongue in cheek article about sit down Stand Up Paddling, little did we know back then the potential for this new discipline of SUPping. A video has emerged of 3 amigos who, whilst going stir crazy in The Mentawais, took the art of Sit Down Paddleboarding to a whole new level.
The three visionaries in question are Peter Mendia, Nate Behl and Donovan Frakenreiter and between them they decided that dropping a bog standard household chair on top of a Paddleboard was the way forward. How right they were! The resulting session is one of the funniest and most stylish clips we have seen in a while!
Whilst all three of them rip it up on the SUP, Donovan (rocking the best moustache in Surfing) is able to ride with so much more groove and finesse and we can only put this down to his fine facial hair! The 3-minute clip can be found below this article and we promise it will bring a smile to your face, although it can’t have been all fun for the other surfers in the water on this day! Let us know what you think of the clip and the sport of Sit Down Paddling?
