The Catch

The Paddle Monster Monthly currated content feed about all things Paddling!

This is something we’ve wanted to bring to fruition since May 2020 when we saw so many new paddlers getting on the water after the first pandemic lockdowns.  We were inspired by seeing how many new paddlers were taking up SUP and wanted to create content that would be relevant to them, helping to make their paddling experience better, while at the same time providing useful and interesting content for more experienced paddlers and racers.  It’s taken a while but here we are, with our first issue out and more on the way.

Our pledge to you is to provide interesting, informative and relevant monthly content appealing to all paddlers new and old – racers, fitness trainers and recreational paddlers – across a range of categories from fitness to training to racing, from technique to equipment, from SUP travel to paddler profiles and more.  It’s translatable, for the most part, into 10 different languages.

We’re glad you’ve chosen to join us and thank you for giving us the chance to add to your paddling experience.  Please feel free to comment on the articles and suggest topics you’d like to see us explore.

Happy reading and happy paddling!
