Somebody sent us this article on PED’s in professional surfing http://www.theinertia.com/surf/performance-enhancing-drugs-and-the-state-of-surfing/ . It made us think about ped’s in sup, do you think its an issue? There was talk of testing for ped’s at the BOP back in 2013 but we never heard of anything come out of it. So not sure if they tested and everyone was clean or if they just wanted to scare some athletes from doing it.
We don’t think its an issue at the local races, if you risk your health for a local paddle board race your crazy. However on the pro level when bigger $$ and sponsorship’s are at stake it would be naive to think that PED’s are out of the equation. Not saying its an issue or it isn’t an issue its just a good article and something to think about.
