2023 starboard best inflatable touring stand up paddle boards

SUP photo shoot with the EyeFly Films drone

Red Paddle co race supAmid some of the biggest possible life changes going on around me, I managed to skip away for a few hours and shoot with EyeFly Films in Sosua Bay, Dominican Republic. It had been a long time in planning but only came to fruition last week. We had the board, we had the quadcopter and pilot/operator/photographer, and then for a minute or two the weather was against us as a small rain cloud blew overhead. We waited about 10 minutes and the drizzle moved on and we got to work.

And let me tell you, the wait, the preparation and the short rain delay was more than worth it. The images of yours truly stand up paddle boarding in the tropical Caribbean waters of Sosua Bay are nothing short of glorious, magical and splendid.

For the occasion, I chose the Red Paddle Co 12’6″ Race as it was the best cruising/touring board I had on hand, plus the red, black and white colour scheme really pops against the tropical blues and greens of the Caribbean.
