Funny paddle boarding quotes: Today the joke’s on us

What’s so funny about paddleboarders?

Before returning fire let’s consider why surfers get so uppity about SUP. Everyone’s competing for the same waves and the most accessible lineups are already crowded as it is. Surfers are territorial because:

1. They don’t want their fun to be ruined by unpredictable newbies.

2. They don’t want to crash or have their head sliced off by a 14’ SUP.  

With SUP as accessible as it is, there are now more riders than ever before competing for the same limited number of surf spots.With this social history lesson in mind and in the spirit of not taking ourselves too seriously, let’s clench a couple fistfuls of salt and laugh through gritted teeth.  We’ve compiled some of the best SUP jokes, SUP fails and SUP quotes for your discriminating pleasure. SUPrise! This is going to be a little cheesy.

Paddleboarding seemed foolish because it was all of the work (paddling) without enjoying any of the benefits (surfing) – sort of like being an anorexic baker.
