River SUP is the ultimate whitewater experience!

Stand-Up Paddleboarding (SUP) provides an exciting way to enjoy the river. Whether you simply want to float on moving water or are looking to challenge yourself in whitewater, doing it on a SUP adds a whole other element of adventure and challenge.

I am Davide “Dave” Sartoni (aka The River SUP Guy). I was first introduced to Stand-Up Paddleboarding on the crisp, blue waters of Lake Tahoe, CA. I was captivated from the very first paddle stroke.

When I later discovered that I could take a SUP down a river my life was literally turned upside down. Today, I spend over 100 days per year riding rivers on my SUP, and sharing the stoke for the sport has become my mission!
