SUP Racer at the Paddle for Plummer in Salem, MA (July 13, 2014)
Crouching down for his power stroke,
this SUP (Stand Up Paddleboard) racer
digs into the surging brine.
Moments later he flies to the finish line
at the Paddle for Plummer.
(I took this photo while swimming near the
marked SUP course.
I wanted to be close to the racers...
but not too close!)
SUP racing is pretty new.
This race was produced by B&S Event Management
and drew a very large crowd.
For centuries, Salem, MA has drawn
life and identity from these cold Atlantic waters.
Now the sea gives this great new England city
a dramatic new form of competition!
