By joining us in taking action against threatened government regulations for SUP, you are helping the SUP community maintain its independence in ensuring the proper safety and experience for the sport. Moreover, any government regulation (whatever its subject, whether it be SUP, sonars on boats, fishing, etc.) must be based on actual, reliable data that demonstrates there is a problem and provides a solution for that problem.  Thus far, the data shows that ocean SUPers are put at risk for increased accidents when lifejackets are involved.
