Stand up paddle boarding or "SUP" has exploded in the last handful of years.

We had the opportunity to tour the GLIDE Paddleboards warehouse and see what goes into making a board. Being that we'll be using their boards next summer it was a great experience to learn more about what goes into the boards. All the boards are made in Salt Lake City, UT therefore keeping jobs in the US and giving their boards the highest quality control check you can get.

The giant pile of leftovers that get's recycled.
