River surfing shots from Salida, CO where we have 2 waves in our whitewater park that were designed specifically for SUP river surfing.

Like that last shot, can you get enough speed to complete a hard turn like that?
Cheers, SupV.

Sometimes, although truth be told I can't remember if that turn ended with me on my face... ;)

Waves designed for SUP river surfing, thats cool.
That green/white board looks tiny, what are the dims?
Is that a strap on the blue/wht board?

The green one is 6'11"x31"x5 1/8" and paddles surprisingly well for its size



We have been playing around with foot straps a little.

Looks more like a Coors commercial- mile high taste from the Rockies.
