When you live 15 minutes from the beach it seems a bit daft to drive the width of the country for a days SUP surfing. However, after the summer we have had and...

Tina on her Loco 7'10'' SUP

Cornish Loco Tina Beresford reviews Loco SUPs 7’10”

So after agreeing to join Loco SUP's paddle surf team a few months back, Joe was kind enough to send me a 7'10'' short SUP to use until my competition board landed in a couple of months. Being relatively new to SUP I'd only really borrowed or rented boards before and they were usually 9'-11' long so I was initially quite wary about such a short SUP.

Tall, short, fat or thin – choosing Your Perfect (SUP) Mate

In light of the current run of uber low volume/width/length surf SUPs being widely promoted, the question is posed: how small should we actually be going? After being dumped by the roadside, the renaissance of longboard stand up paddle surfing has also popped back onto the agenda – something many toes on the nose aficionados will be relishing. (After all, prone surfing luminaries recognise both disciplines as two halves of the same puzzle, so why shouldn’t SUP be the same?) Which size...
