It’s just a few days away and we’ve been busy gathering together all that essential UK SUP goodness for your viewing and reading pleasure. We’ve had amazing support from across the industry and the UK SUP world at large and we’re now looking forward to delivering our creation – SUP Mag UK. We hope you like it…
