SUP Junkie

SUP Junkie have been great supporters of stand up paddle boarding since time began and their passion shines through in everything they do.

In fact the truth is that once she got hold of the mic at the first race of the newly formed GBSUP she simply wouldn’t put it down.

Through the interviews we have been able to inspire even the most inexperienced beginner to participate in SUP racing.

Through SUP Junkie we’ve been able to produce Live Feeds, which have helped to connect the public with the sup events around the country and show our sport off to a much wider audience.
