SUP magazine goes quarterly for 2011, adds new editor-at-large and increases trim size

October 15, 2010 10:03 PM

Press Release:


SAN CLEMENTE, Calif. (Oct. 14, 2010) – In a series of moves to improve its print product,

SUP magazine, the leading publication in the standup paddling media world, will expand its

frequency to four issues in 2011 while also increasing the publication’s trim size by an inch

and a half – a boon to advertisers looking to get in front of the industry’s largest readership.


“We see an athletic group of readers that’s seriously hungry for hard information on the sport

of standup paddling,” says SUP magazine Publisher Jim Marsh. “People want to know about

standup products, destinations and techniques. This gives us a much more inspirational medium

to do that with. Our goal is to get people on the water.”


SUP magazine has also announced the addition of Sam George to its editorial team as editor-

at-large. George has had a prolific career in surf media with stints as the editor of both Surfing

and Surfer. He’s also written a handful of surf movies that have left indelible marks on the genre,

including Riding Giants directed by Stacey Peralta. “Sam isn’t just an incredible writer,” says

SUP magazine Editor Joe Carberry. “He’s an incredible paddler and knows the sport of standup

as well as anyone out there, having spent most of his life not only surfing, but kayaking as well.

He’s a waterman in every sense of the word.”


This emphasis on product improvement follows an incredible year at SUP magazine. Surfing

legend Gerry Lopez guest edited the magazine, hosting a timeless interview with standup

paddling innovator Laird Hamilton where these icons talked about the pure joys of standup and

why it’s changed the lives of so many people. The issue is on newsstands now at REI, EMS,

Barnes and Noble, Borders, Hastings, and most paddle or surf shops.


In addition, SUPthemag.com has expanded its event coverage and incorporated video into its

skills write-ups (most of which come right from the magazine), opening up the world of standup

to novices and experts alike. “It’s really exciting to be part of the standup paddling movement,”

says Marsh. “We can’t wait to see what the future holds.”
