One of the most common questions we get from people interested in renting SUP’s from us is how to transport the boards to the beach without a roof rack. The video shows how we strap boards to the roof, everything you need is included in our low rental fees. You can safely transport up to 3 stacked SUP’s on almost any car using this method. The EVA pads and straps are available on our website at:

At Blue Planet, we were not satisfied with the carry handles on the market and decided to develop our own carry handle. After developing several prototypes and going through the design, testing and molding process, the result is the new, patent pending SUP Grip. This handle makes carrying Stand Up Paddle boards easier and more comfortable than ever. Continue reading ‘SUP Grip Now Available for Retrofit’

Livio is a Brazilian who made Maui his home. He is one of the fastest SUP racers and a funny guy to hang out with. We ended up sitting next to each other on the red eye flight from LA to Orlando. We arrived in Orlando at 6 am and headed off to the Surf Expo demo day, which was a great event. Despite the sweltering heat and humidity, being outside and on the water was more fun than being inside the convention center all day at the Surf Expo for the next 3 days.

It turned out that our Blue Planet/ Evepaddle booth at Surf Expo was right next to the Starboard booth. We sell a lot of Starboards products at the Blue Planet Surf Shop so I went over to check out what’s new for next year. It was on Friday, the day before the Standup World tour event at Coco Beach and all the top teamriders were on hand to talk about what’s new. Here are the videos I was able to shoot at the Starboards booth with some of the world’s top stand up paddlers:

In June, I got the chance to visit the guys at VIRUS Action Sport Performance at their HQ in California. Ryan Rubiano and Sten Rasmussen graciously gave me a tour of their facilities as well as an extensive run down on their current product line-up. In March I hurt my back and shoulder. I had an inflamed disc that made me feel like I was crippled. To make it worse, I pulled my shoulder too. I was in desperate need of anything that could help me speed up my recovery. I’ve been using the Virus compression pants and top almost every single day since June and I’m convinced the product works for me. Continue reading ‘VIRUS Action Sport Performance Apparel’
