  • Danny Ching Set A New World Record: 200 Metres In Just 47 Seconds

    June 24th, 2014 | Uncategorized | Casey Gotcher | No Comments

    This is absolutely unreal.  I was fortunate enough to convince Danny to do a 100 yard or so Sprint with me a few months back.  He was on a 12’6 and I was on a 19′ and he still beat me by half a board length or so.  When we crossed the line, my Speedcoach […]

      This is a video created by the talented Taylor Rambo of Riviera Paddle Surf.  Very well done in my opinion.  I think this video does a good job in capturing the feel of BOP and the craziness that is this race.  Give it a look.

    August 7th, 2012 | Gear, Reviews | Casey Gotcher | No Comments

    For some reason this site receives a high level of traffic on anything related to Inflatable SUPs.  Ever since I posted an article last year about Inflatables and whether or not they were worth purchasing (http://www.supgladiator.com/2011/07/05/the-case-for-purchasing-an-inflatable-sup/) I have had tons of traffic coming from the search engines on this topic.  Unfortunately there wasn’t a ton […]

    January 4th, 2012 | Uncategorized | Casey Gotcher | No Comments

    Anytime Taylor Rambo, from Riviera sends me a video, I post it.  I do this not because I like Taylor (although I certainly do).  I do it because he is talented, and his videos are well worth watching and sharing. Enjoy! For more of Taylor’s videos, check out his Youtube Channels. http://www.youtube.com/user/RivieraPaddleSurf1 http://www.youtube.com/user/rambofilms

      Danny Ching, Brandon Rambo, and I believe I saw Mike Muir and Taylor Rambo out there too.  Looks like a great session.  Danny surprised me.  I knew the guy could dominate in a race, but wait till you see him surf.  Best recovery I have seen in a long while.

  • Paddle Royale–ESPN Article on Stand Up Paddling

    March 2nd, 2011 | Contests, SUP Gladiators | Casey Gotcher | No Comments

      My thoughts first.. I had to smile at the headline for the Gallery Section “The Crew taking stand up paddling to the next level.”  Seems like I may have heard that somewhere else, like this sites mission statement. In any case, I am really glad to see Stand Up Paddling getting this kind of […]

    February 21st, 2011 | SUP Gladiators | Casey Gotcher | No Comments

      For this weeks “Gladiator of the Week” we chose Livio Menelau.  He is an accomplished racer and downwinder.  People in Hawaii seem to be pretty familiar with him (especially on Maui), but for some reason he doesn’t seem to be as well known here on the mainland.  Hopefully that will change over the course […]
