History Established in 2011 We became fired up about SUP after reading an article in Outside magazine in August of 2010 about a dude named Bucky McMahon who travelled between islands in North Carolina’s Outer Banks. It seemed crazy to me at that time that it was possible to paddle 10 miles in a day just on a board between cities and islands. We were surprised when less than a year later on we took our first SUP lesson in Harbor Springs, Michigan. Weknew immediately that this was the ultimate sport for us. Standing on the boards with the sun shining, we could see the fish swimming playfully underneath in the clear water as we paddled around the boats in the harbor in an eco-friendly way. From that awesome day forward, we have charged into the SUP world to learn more about the art of Sup’ing. Meet the Business Owner:
