This video was on youtube a few days ago but was renoved, it shows how dysfunctional high volume SUP's are due to the fact that the boards cannot be held on to in the whitewater. These guys are just throwing their boards away and relying on the leash which is totally unacceptable behaviour.

I've been riding big heavy longboards from 12 to 17 feet for many years and always hold on to my boards and control them in the whitewater. The keys to doing this safely are: A relatively thin ( so that it can be gripped in the hands ) low volume board with sufficient weight to enable it to be rolled under , the right attitude to safety, and plenty of training.

One of the problems is that due to mass marketing and mass production there is a rash of these boards out there. When one makes one's own big wooden longboard one knows the craft intimately and has a better attitude to safety. . . also there are inevitably only a few of them around as only a few people have the patience to make one.
