Winter Light Parades and SUP Events Worth the Paddle


The weather’s getting colder, but that doesn’t mean SUP-ers have to tuck their iSUPs back in their iROCKER Back Pack Carry Bags and shove them away in the darkest part of the garage until summer.

It may not seem like it, but there’s lots for SUP-ers to do during the winter months. So what if the degrees drop a little? It’s no reason for nature lovers to sit inside and miss out on outdoor adventures. Isn’t that what wetsuits were made for?

If you want to make this winter a memorable one, grab your iROCKER or BLACKFIN and give one of these cool events a visit this season.

The Amsterdam Light Festival

One noteworthy light festival coming up is the Amsterdam Light Festival. People flock from all over the world to witness the extraordinary show of lights and art installations put on display in Amsterdam. In addition to visitors, festival organizers invite artists from all over to contribute to the show.

The art and light installations are set up all along the Keizersgracht Canal, which is great news for SUP-ers. Get a stellar view of Amsterdam’s beautiful architecture all lit up from on top of your SUP.

Don’t forget to pack a camera in your Cooler Deck Bag. The bag is waterproof and it secures perfectly to your iSUP, so it’ll remain safe and sound stored away when you’re not using it. You’ll capture some of the greatest photos from your iSUP since you’ll be seeing the festival from a unique angle.

The festival goes on from Nov. 29 to Jan 20. Take a peek at the details and featured artists here.

Historic St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights

St. Augustine, Florida, is a quaint and gorgeous historic city, but it’s rarely quiet. Every night from Nov. 17 to Feb. 3, the city’s historic buildings and bridges are illuminated with lights.

How cool would it be to see St. Augustine’s Nights of Lights from the Matanzas River? Experiencing the stunning scenery from a distance with a few SUP pals by your side would be a memory that would last a lifetime.

If you prefer a more comfortable view during the show, give our Kayak Seat attachment a try.

Bring Your Pup to Australia for the “Every Man and His Dog” Event

Some SUP-ers love winter events but hate winter weather. We have a solution. The ”Every Man and His Dog” SUP event happens every year in Sydney, Australia.

If you’re thinking it’s an awesome event where SUP-ers and their pups paddle the day away with each other, competing in friendly races and playing fun games, you’re exactly right. There’s lots of paddling, petting and bonding going on at this event.

It starts at 10 a.m. at Watson’s Bay, and it happens on Australia Day, Jan. 26.

You and your best puppy pal will be sure to bond on a whole new level by the end of the day. There will be friendly games and tough competitions, and sometimes a combination of both.

You better get training now.

Give us all the deets on your iSUP winter adventures in the fields below. We want to know everything, and we want pictures!
