Kayak, Canoe and Stand Up Paddling Back

Oct 27, 2013

I have been paddling kayaks and canoes for over 40 years in Europe and in USA. 12 years ago, I started to participate in paddling races, mostly long distance ultra marathon events.
 
Usually, I paddle with a camera, so these activities resulted in many pictures in my Paddling with a Camera and Fitness Paddling blogs, as well, as some stock pictures available for licensing here in Kayak and Canoe and Paddling Gear galleries.
 
Last year I added my first paddleboard, 14′ Bark Expedition to my fleet. A few months later I bought another paddleboard, a more stable inflatable Badfish SUP designed for whitewater.
 
Stand up paddling (SUP) is an emerging global sport with a Hawaiian heritage. This sport has many flavors: ocean or whitewater surfing, racing, expedition, recreation with children or a dog. even practicing yoga. SUP is getting popular in Colorado on both lakes and mountain rivers.
 
You can expect more and more SUP pictures from Colorado in my portfolio.
