I won’t try to hide the fact that I’m stoaked about Badfish Stand Up Paddle boards, the brand and the people behind it. The River Surfer 6’11″ has opened up a whole new world of fun in my backyard whitewater park at low flows this summer, and the stability and performance of the MVP and MCIT take river running to a new realm. Part 1 of the Badfish promo video (below) details the evolution of the company that is pushing the inland SUP design envelope harder than anyone else in the industry. Mike Harvey is a long-time friend of mine, and I’ve got to say that I just believe in what he and Zach are doing. Add to that the fact that my good friends Mike Tavares and Haley Mills are representing this brand on the road, and these videos are inspiring to watch (the incredible production from Sam Bricker helps).
