‘Safe SUP Choices’ Video Series
Standup paddling is all fun and games, until it’s not. The water – whether ocean, river, lake or pond – can be dangerous and always deserves respect.
The Water Sports Foundation has released it’s newest Safer Paddling six part video series called “Safe SUP Choices.” Together, the Water Sports Foundation, TEN and SUP Magazine have been working hard in partnership with the U.S. Coast Guard to help educate the paddling public and to strive for zero deaths.
According to the U.S. Coast Guard annual statistics, standup paddle board accidents and deaths are steadily increasing while power boating deaths are decreasing during the same period. Most of these deaths could have been avoided with an increased knowledge of basic paddle safety and situational awareness.
We ask you to share these videos on your website, social media, network and YouTube accounts to help bring awareness to Safe SUP Choices in our continuous efforts to promote and support in educating paddlers everywhere.
