SUPing Magazine Profile on Erik Abel

erik abel suping magazine issue 4 2012

Check out the new issue #4 of SUPing Magazine out of Spain.  It’s an online mag and I’ve got a pretty good looking spread with plenty of juicy pictures.  There’s an english version in the back for those non-spanish speaking individuals.

There are a lot of surfers who hate SUP’s.  Most of them have probably never done it… and probably never will.  I have fun doing it.  And until I saw this guy charging 12 foot Cloudbreak with my own eyes, I don’t think I fully realized the potential for the sport.  I couldn’t believe how late this guy was getting into waves, how maneuverable his board was and how many waves he was getting. It was unreal.  And as much as I prefer surfing when the waves are firing, I always wonder what it would be like to stand up paddle into a double overhead barrel.   Maybe someday.
