Usually considered a warm weather sport, the paddle boarder in this video takes SUP to a new level.
If you spend any time near a body of calm water during the summer, you are sure to see a paddle boarder or two floating by. The sport of stand up paddleboarding (SUP) has exploded in popularity in recent years and it has become a common sight during nice weather.
However, this paddle boarder took things to a new extreme when he hit the frozen waters of Lake Michigan for a winter weather SUP adventure.
The frozen surroundings and large ice formations definitely make for a stunning view for paddle boarder Karol Garrison. With the length and severity of this past winter, people who love the outdoors have had to take their interests to new heights.
SUP on frozen Lake Michigan may be too extreme for some people. However, if you look closely during the video, you’ll also spot an intrepid angler braving the elements to pursue his passion as well. At least he stays on shore!
