Stand Up Paddle Mag UK (SUPM) started life as an idea between Peter Tranter and a well-known watersport enthusiast named Tez Plavenieks. The end result being that 2b Graphic Design became the publisher whilst Tez took on the role of editor. SUPM is both a paid for digital and printed title with a free lo-res issue being uploaded digitally six weeks after publication.
The first magazine rolled off the presses in April 2014 and we are now into the final edition of its fourth year. In that short space of time, SUPM has gathered together nearly 1,500 subscribers in what is a very small but competitive market place. In addition, the free lo-res version is read by up to 6,000 paddlers and so provides the only platform in the UK SUP market for a digital/printed publication.
Tez Plavenieks has also been instrumental in setting up the SUPM website, which in tandem with the magazine, has grown from strength to strength and now attracts its own advertising base with excellent readership figures (https://standuppaddlemag.co.uk) .

SUPM is yet another fine example of 2b Graphic Design combining an original idea with enthusiastic people within the sport and turning it into a resounding success. To subscribe to the printed edition of the magazine, please click here: https://standuppaddlemag.co.uk/
