Dropping waterfalls on a stand up paddleboard?  It doesn’t really seem like a doable activity.  We know that you simply cannot land a drop off a waterfall on a stand up paddleboard (SUP).

Oh, what’s that?  Oh, never mind.  You totally can and this video below proves it:

That said, there is likely a limit to how big you can go, just with every hucking sport.

We’ve gotta give props to Dan Gavere for going for this waterfall of about 20 feet.  Doesn’t seem too doable, but we’ll get back to you in 10 years.  Guys will have bindings mounted on these things and they’ll be regularly stomping these size waterfalls…  somehow.

One thought on “Dropping Waterfalls on a Paddleboard? | Yep…

  1. While it will be inevitable that people will be regularly stomping ‘the piss’ out of some waterfall landings, it begs to mention that there might be a better tool for such an undertaking. Also consider that paddleboarding is unique in its minimal requirements in the footwear and foot-attachment category, so to what purpose are we trying to muck it all up by tying ourselves to the board? There will never be a problem if people choose to subject themselves to ‘trying harder’ with any aspect of sport, but I’ll keep my paddling mellow to balance the aggression of my winter months spent chasing storms.
