"SUPing is a low impact exercise that is a combination of balance, strenght and endurance which are exercised whether you are paddling or just balancing on your board. It's not only an excellent core workout but also the toes, legs, back, shoulders, arms and neck all work together"-www.supworldmag.com
Hi my name is Niall and I'm a watersports addict!
I love all watersports SUPing, surfing, kitesurfing, scuba diving, etc.
I didn't really commit to SUPing until I moved from the West Coast of Ireland where I surfed for years on an almost daily basis to sunny Dorset.
I had tried Stand Up Paddleboarding many times and loved it but the massive price of a new board put me off buying my own SUP until I moved to Dorset where I was greeted with flat south coast waters.
I bought a second hand well known SUP brand that was an "all rounder model" for a lot of money.
I loved my new board and was back on the water however what I didn't realise was the South Coast can quite often produce some excellent waves most of the year, you just had to be ready when the conditions are right.
My "all rounder" didn't exactly cut it surfing wise so I thought why not design a SUP that suited my needs.
I wanted a board that is actually an all rounder meaning I can use it for touring, exploring, fitness sessions but most importantly I can surf it but I wanted an inflatable that can be stored in the boot of my car.
It turns out I was not the only person looking for a high quality affordable SUP and orders started coming in, and Cold West Boards was born !!
The "Noserider" is definitely my favourite board.
Hi I'm Karen and began SUPing two years ago. Unlike Niall I was not into watersports until I tried SUPing. I'm not a confident swimmer so I have to wear a floatation jacket.
I'm now pretty confident on the water and I'm even SUP surfing now which I never thought would happen.
I prefer the ORCA as it's got a lot more volume than the noserider and aimed more for exploring, touring and yoga.
The extra volume makes the board really stable which suits me better as I don't like falling in.
Team Rider: Laura
Laura is our team rider from Inverness, she works in Forestry as a Learning and Development Officer, her job takes her all over the Scottish Highlands and she loves long distance touring and exploring on her Orca.
Laura packs up a dry bag with her cooking stove, lunch and other Bear Grylls essentials and heads off into the highlands exploring the remote lochs and beautiful great outdoors of the Scottish Highlands.
Laura prefers the Orca as having a high-volume stable board which is vital when going this far off the grid on long distance SUPs.
Follow Laura’s adventures on her Instagram @lawra_henderson where you can see her hanging with seals, discovering abandoned islands, brewing a coffee and generally cruising in some of the most amazing locations.
Team Rider- Josh
Josh is our team rider from the New Forest. He travels the world working as a drummer in Rock ‘n’ Roll band gigging on luxury cruise ships, hotels and theatres. He gets to travel to some amazing locations like the Caribbean, South America and Europe and loves all things water related.
Josh’s weapon of choice is the Noserider; as he needs an all-rounder SUP that’s easy to pack, pump up, pack away and take as carry-on luggage, so he never misses an opportunity to SUP in some of the idyllic locations.
