Badfish Stand up Paddle Boards!

Mariela and I went to Colorado for a few weeks in May and June. It was an action packed two weeks, with Paddlefest and Teva Mountain Games. If you've never been to the rivers out west, you are missing out. We stayed in Buena Vista, CO and surfed/paddled: Numbers, fractions and the BV and Salida Playparks.

We were able to surf some of the Badfish Boards, both down river and on waves. Mike and Zach are at the forefront of river surf design. It was awesome to surf some completely original designs.

River Runner surfingStand up River surf is a very new medium. Kayaks have been surfing river waves for years but SUP boards are relatively new.
