Kid Rock & a couple of Red Wings players on SUP
« on: June 03, 2011, 09:39:32 AM »
In light of the Eddie Vedder thread.... I ran across this bit last night. Apparently Detroit has their own celebrity spokesmen on SUP too.

Chris Chelios has been doing standup for years.  He trains with Laird Hamilton:

"Chelios's training days don't end when he returns to his beachfront Malibu home. He'll often take 40-mile bike rides along the Pacific Coast Highway, then spend the afternoon paddle-surfing for as much as 16 miles in the Pacific. Usually he'll be joined by his neighbor and big-wave surfer Laird Hamilton -- or by his 18-year-old son, Dean. "Paddling is underrated as an exercise," says the 5' 11", 191-pound Chelios of the ancient Hawaiian technique of standing on a 12-foot-long board while paddling with a seven-foot oar. "It's a real workout when you're dealing with waves or going against the wind. The paddle is like a hockey stick used for balance and steering. Paddling works everything: legs, stomach, shoulders, back."

It's actually a lot like hockey.  You're sliding around on water with a stick (like he says above)--they just freeze the water for hockey.

Love the shot in their cooler!



So come to find out this American Badass beer is actually his own brewery.

 http://www.americanbadassbeer.com/

And to make it even better, the guy has some very noble reasons for starting it.

Their slogan is pretty funny:     

It's the difference between being a badass and a dumb one... 
Please Drink Responsibly.
