Episode 1

01. Welcome to SUPfm

In the first ever session, Nick and Simon chat about who they are, their background, their passion for stand up paddle boarding and their podcast mission.

Nick has spent much of his career in front of a keyboard, but threw it all in to run a SUP school in the Algarve, Portugal. SUP has reconnected Nick with his old self, who was a river guide and a ranger in South Africa.

Simon was a dry land sportsman desperately looking for a replacement for his first sporting passion of rugby. Leaving the London rat race for the south coast of the UK he first discovered the water and then SUP. Now his hunt is over.

Correction : Since recording this session we have come across two great podcasts for the SUP community which we would like to recognize. First Leslie Kolovich’s long standing and excellent SUP Radio Show and another being Stoke Radio SUP with Darian & the very funny Paddle Guy, we recommend both of them.

The SUPfm podcast

This podcast is focused on spreading the value of SUP across the globe and providing inspiration and advice to all levels of paddle boarders, from those about to take it up, to experienced racers and adventurers.
