Current SUP Board Contributors

Justin Taylor – Chief Paddling Officer

Hi, I’m Justin, and I’m stoked to be part of the SupBoardGuide community! Living in southern Utah as a land-locked not-so-great surfer, I’m lucky to have several great SUP locations near by to get out on the water and out of the heat!

My role as SupBoardGuide is lead product reviewer, and I personally test every board that we get sent for review. I have a passion for finding the best products in everything I buy and love helping others find the right SUP for them.

Currently, I’m working towards becoming a certified PSUPA instructor and also am looking to improve my whitewater SUP skills. Of course, one of my favorite activities is a long paddle with my wife and kids. I also enjoy surfing, mountain biking, and pretty much anything else that takes me outside.

If you have any questions about stand up paddle boards, let me know!

Chris Murphy – Staff Writer | Paddle Board Expert

I the team last year, and have over a decade of paddling experience as well as 7 years of commercial SUP rental experience in Chattanooga, Tennessee. I have a love for that water that manifests in many forms in addition to just SUP. It’s my goal to provide you with the nothing but the best, completely honest reviews of the boards we test along with educational content that helps our readers become more skilled and more safe paddlers.

See you on the water soon and remember to always buy the ticket, and take the ride.

Alli Blackmon – Staff Writer | Paddle Board Expert

Hi friends! My name is Alli, and I am super excited to be joining the team at SUPBoardGuide. Paddling has been a huge part of my life, and I’m stoked to help newcomers and veteran paddlers sift through all of their options to find their perfect board.

Before I made my way out to sunny southwest Utah, I was living in the City of Brotherly Love and spending my summers as lead guide at SUP Cape May, the best SUP guiding and rental shop on the East Coast. My employers worked endlessly to ensure that I had an arsenal of diverse, high quality SUPs to match to each and every guest experience.

From there, my passion for better understanding the science behind stand-up paddleboards only grew, which is how I found myself in this position (continuing to confuse my parents with my career choices).

My goal here is to give you all of the information, whether it be SUP Reviews, technique tips, and safety info. If you have any questions, please ask!
