Loco 14' Carbon Motion Race SUP

Join Loco’s Stand Up Paddle Boarding Team

As some of you may know it's been a challenging 18 months health-wise for Loco front man Joe, consequently the usual levels of SUP stoke and team talent harvesting have had to take a backseat regrettably. Thankfully he's now back in the room and looking to drive things forward for the rest of this season and into 2020 and beyond. If you can see yourself as a Loco brand ambassador and are well-versed in self-promotion across social media we...

Solving The Big Guy Surf SUP Conundrum

Solving The Big Guy Surf SUP Conundrum It's fair to say that most guys with paddle surfing intentions don't necessarily fit into the 60-75kg sub 5'10 category so we have to ask ourselves how relevant are the volume to weight ratios and kit choices of our SUP surfing heroes? For most of us we have to pay for our kit and don't always have unlimited budgets to justify 2-3 boards so it comes down to compromise to a certain extent. Loco...

Loco At The Big Ben SUP Challenge 2017

Loco At The Big Ben SUP Challenge 2017 Having spent the last 3 years working in London the pull of a 20k paddle along the Thames was irresistible. London is an amazing city, as a seafaring nation the Thames has been instrumental in shaping the capital. Many of it’s iconic buildings are neighbours to what for centuries has been the lifeblood of the City. I’ve not been stand up paddle boarding long and had been looking for a challenge before the...

East Coast SUP Hustle with Loco Surfing

East Coast SUP Hustle

East Coast SUP Hustle After another 'decent size swell' famine for a few weeks and some uninspiring local beach break sessions, Loco boss Joe was desperate for this paddle surfing fix! Magic Seaweed suggested it might well happen at last weekend but as with all interesting forecasts they tend to run over into midweek when the daily grind necessitates doing some 'actual work' rather than swanning off to the coast all day. Praise be to Neptune, Joe's schedule was pretty clear...

Loco SUP Surfing South West Portugal

Loco SUP Surfing South West Portugal It must have been almost 20 years since I last visited Portugal and with a none paddle surfing better half I'd agreed to book  somewhere in the South Algarve on a largely 'holiday basis' with the caveat that I could take my board (just in case). The last time I was in Portugal I'd stayed in Lagos and had enjoyed some half decent windsurfing in October so I hoped that I'd at least score...

2017 Loco Paddle Surfing & Kite Action From Tiree, Scotland The Isle of Tiree – we have been coming here since I was at University teaching windsurfing and stand up paddle boarding to pay my way. It has a very special place in our hearts, it always provides the goods on and off the water.
