Find a Paddle Buddy

We often get people asking about how to find someone else to go paddling with. Probably the best way is to go to as many local paddling events as you can, such as our biweekly clinics or our Saturday afternoon race. But sometimes schedules are tight or inflexible, and there's just no way to make those commitments. Building a paddling community is one of our primary goals here at Soposup. We want to help folks connect with one another and progress their skills on the water together in a safe, responsible manner.

Fall in Maine

We had a decent stretch of surf last couple of weeks finally. Here's a set wave from what turned into a 7 hour session at Higgins. photo props to Dustin Turin

Good Morning Higgins

John Coleman, Dan Bailin, Steve Holt and Teddy Stoecklein paddled the Spurwink at dawn. The waves were small, but glassy. And I think we paddled over no less than 150 stripers between the bridge and the mouth. No better way to start a day.

Raf - Urban winter SUP master!

Raf led an adventurous bunch of souls on an icy urban paddle - Westbrook Winter Festival on the mighty Presumpscot. He broke through the icebergs and ice field with a paddle in one hand and a fire department axe in the other to get in a paddle! Amazing!

I was really blown away to get this e-mail the other day. Its a great feeling to know that there are people out there who's visit to the shop is just the beginning of a life long adventure!

To cold to paddle?

Thanks for the board Raf and the intro to SUP!

Westbrook Director of Business and Community Relations

My daughter Caity introduced me to SoPo SUP - and I introduced her to the Presumpscott River in downtown Westbrook. A unique 1/2 mile paddling opportunity below the falls at the end of Ash Street. Join us January 5th, SUP flash mob on the river for a photo that will cover Westbrook marketing materials! Mark your calendar!

Paddlebirding Great Pond

A late August paddle-birding trip around Great Pond in Cape Elizabeth didn't yield many species , but its always a beautiful, relaxing place to spend a summer's hour.

SUP Yoga brotherly Love :)
