THE NEXT 10 YEARS OF WANDERLUST AND LIGHT // BY GLENN DUBOCK
Somewhere in my first decade on this planet I read an article called “Seven Solitary Secrets.” It was a simple tale, lavishly illustrated with enticing yet unidentified surfing locations that encouraged the reader to seek out the waves not ridden just off the roads less traveled. Did the trick; it set me on a wanderlust for fun and photography that has not let up for several decades.
I now want to challenge our happy, growing family of paddlers to take this 10-year-old “child” we know as standup paddling and show it the world—to not follow the herd instinct, but rather to look around every roaring bend in the river, search every mystic headland of the coast, explore behind that tall stand of trees on the far side of the lake.
Who among you will join me as we seek to find our own solitary secrets?
Send us some photos of where you’ve been—no need to say exactly where it is if you don’t want to. Feel free to act like a kid again; a 10-yearold out discovering a whole new world. This photo annual is a celebration of that spirit of wanderlust, a tribute to our photographer friends who seek out the light in all those far corners of our liquid dreams. –Glenn
