From his early days in Portugal, to the UK to Hawaii, Tristan Boxford has led a vibrant life embracing all aspects of the ocean. After experiencing the joys of being a professional windsurfer way back when, he jumped on to stand up paddle boarding as early as 2008, being a part of what could be the very first ever stand up paddle race at the "Ocean Games". All the Hawaiian pros showed up and things just snowballed from there. Nick chats with him about the early days of SUP Racing Events vs SUP Surf Contests and the evolution of the support with Kai Lenny, Danny Ching and Travis Grant. The diverse locations that the tour took in are legendary: from Finland to Fiji and now they take in some epic city SUPrace locations like New York, London, Osaka and San Francisco. We talk about the legitimacy of the https://www.appworldtour.com/ (APP World Tour) and its clear support from the International Surfing Association and the size of the sport. Great conversation and interesting behind the scenes snippets from the Stand Up Paddle tour!
