Stand Up paddle boarding on white water started to became popular in the USA around 2012. That time my current boss spent his winter there getting familiar with the new way of running wild rivers. As he brought a few boards over to Europe for the upcoming summer season, we as young guides were lucky enough to get an opportunity to also start practising in the rapids.
History showed us that sport needed a few years to settle in peoples minds and also needed an enthusiastic, motivated instructor, my friend Sebastian Toth, to raise the bar and start organising guided instructional tours on surrounding lakes, on the easier white water Soca sections and also SUP Joga emerged to satisfy the premium needs of the outdoorsy tourist visiting Bovec and Soca-Valley.
