Looks like today is the last day of the swell here on Cape Ann. We have had an amazing run of surf this past week here on the North Shore and all over New England. As much as I need a little break in the action to recuperate my middle aged bones, I want this run of waves to continue with a new swell! Whether you have been SUP surfing, longboarding, shortboarding alternative craft riding, or bodysurfing this past week I hop you had fun. Here's this mornings leftovers at Good Harbor. Knee to waist and a little bit junky...

The new SUPErgometer by KayakPro is a full fledged dry land stand up paddle trainer that looks like it will keep you in shape through a long cold New England winter. Does the onset of real fall like temperatures today have you feel like you are dry docked until next spring? The crew here at Surfari are pretty hardcore and in the cold winter water stand up paddle surfing year round on Boston's North Shore, New Hampshire, Maine, Rhode Island, the Cape, and the Islands.

New, Stand Up Paddling, Video -

After a long wait and the first shipment getting lost in space, we finally have copies of That First Glide in stock at Surfari. Maui film maker Mike Waltze has crafted the first stand up paddling movie and it's a good one. I like to say it's a kind of SUP version of Riding Giants with a history of SUP, pioneers like Laird Hamilton, and a general overview of the many aspects of stand up. Filmed in Hawaii, Tahiti, and Fiji the movie features, flat water, SUP surfing, racing, and down winders. Although it tends to be Hawaii and especially Maui...
