Bruce Peninsula, Lake Ontario
Multi day paddling  - Clear blue waters, and rock climbing days away from help if you fall :D
Great photos and the writer qualifies as "hot chicks on paddle boards" even in a dry suit IMHO.

I once paddled 83km in two days around Brittany (Golfe du Morbihan near the city of Vannes). I carried everything: food, clothing, camping gear, and huge camera.

Must admit: it was one of the top reasons as to "why I got into SUP" - this sport is super versatile for sure.




The current there can be crazy fun (or crazy dangerous) depending on how you look at it.



The setup for the night:



Motivation to get started:


Nelo SUP - 14' x 23"
Nelo Surfski 560M - 18'4" x 17"

Those are some great trips. I got bit by the cruising/adventure bug. I'm planning at least one good trip this summer, maybe in the Adirondack Park.

Greenland kayak style sup paddle? I actually have thought about this and searched on the web with no success. Can you tell me about it? Or is for sitting and "canoeing" the board?

Page 3 has a different link for Bart De Zwart's attempt to paddle to Greenland - this one has some of his gear list and prep before he left.

It also mentions a front fin for dealing with side winds.

Not sure this is really worthy of the list, but a local group does this and it's one I would like to do. While it is primarily kayaks, you can see in the first picture that SUPs also make the trip.

https://www.facebook.com/events/2355638797990406/2355650241322595

It's the Neuse River in NC from the last dam to the sea. 6 overnights along the way, but what makes me unsure about whether it is worthy is that the Neuse flows through a lot of towns along the way and they have some meals in restaurants and can resupply at stores. But they camp every night. The river is 275 miles long and forms less than 10 miles above where they start (the Flat and the Eno flow into Fall Res and only the Neuse flows out). I am not sure if they go as far as where it stops being called a river. They are a little ridiculous about that here. The Neuse and Pamlico are called rivers for miles past where they basically have become sounds. You have probably seen this river on the news a few times; when named storms come ashore it sometimes over flows its banks and devastates communities.

I paddled with a few people last summer who do this trip with just SUPs.
2016 Naish Glide 14x30 GTW
2017 GoPlus 9'9" x 6" iSUP (generic low end all around)

Shoot - I was going to edit this and fix .

Page 3 is not Bart - it's Antonio de le Rosa . More on him soon.

Bart's Greenland attempt didn't get in this thread yet - not sure how I missed that.

Reallly tough to find a real article on Antonio's trip in Greenland - I went to facebook and spent 40 minutes scrolling back in time (facebooks sucks at this) to find earlier posts on his trip - so here's a link to some of his photos and it gets you around his Greenland timeline on Facebook.
https://www.facebook.com/aventurasdelcali2/photos/pcb.1177389065639697/1177362912308979/?type=3&theater

EDIT: This spot is where you can scroll down and get his adventure "in reverse" - catch the videos, translate the updates. Pretty serious trip. No, not sufficient. Really very serious trip, on his own. Another iSup too. Take the time to scroll back, watch the vids. If someone has a "real" website, please post it up. I can imagine it's just not easy in the nonSpanish internet to find.
