A surprisingly interesting "paddle system"
« on: October 13, 2021, 08:54:53 AM »
I've been missing SUP paddling, or more specifically, my body has been missing the workout. My triceps are deflating, my chest and abs are softening, Wing Foiling just isn't the same level of exercise. I plan to paddle a lot more in Maui this year, but I said that to myself about halfway through the summer, and still never got my board wet. I carried it around on the truck for a month or so, but I actually need to take it off the truck and stick it in the water.

Then I saw this thing. Most of the gimmick paddle systems I've seen are pretty silly. I try to be open-minded about them, I even briefly owned a Hobie with a mirage drive, but I haven't seen many useful approaches. But this thing actually looks pretty good. https://newatlas.com/outdoors/supski-stand-up-paddleboard/ I'd be a little more convinced of the usability if the guy in the video demonstrated even a basic idea of how to use a SUP with a regular paddle. He paddles like it's his first time on a board. And with 2 backers, only one of which shows up in the products claimed section, I'd have my doubts this thing will get funded. Which might be too bad, it's not a terrible idea and the execution looks OK.

Clicked on that site.  First thing I thought of was the slave rowers scene in 'Ben Hur'.  "Ramming speed!"

Dispensing with any notions that stand up paddling evokes visions of Laird shooting the pier at Malibu or Raimana taking a bomb at Teahupo'o, truth-is the "Supski" is probably closer to how stand up paddling appears to most onlookers.

I love stuff like that.  Even though I thin it has a snowball's chance in Hell. i love seeing someone think they've got a better idea and attempting to follow through with it.
