Street SUP in Australia

We're not talking about Street SUP involving skateboard like gear. We're talking about real Street SUP. The East Coast of Australia has been recently hit by torrential rain, mini tornadoes and cyclones. They lead to floods, and although the local authorities are not thrilled about it, they offer the perfect chance to enjoy a SUP session right on the street.

For instance, John Townsend, who lives in Buddina on the Sunshine Coast, has recently enjoyed such an experience. The torrential rain that soaked the area turned his street into a real water canal, so John picked up his SUP board and headed for a nice “downwinder” drive.
He used a custom made board without fins. The board was crafted by John himself and it seems to be pretty versatile for street SUP.
