Amphibious assault in Oceanside

Stand-up paddleboarding has exploded since 2003

A race referred to as the “Torture Chamber”
A race referred to as the “Torture Chamber”

The U.S. military developed their amphibious vehicle known as the Landing Vehicle Tracked, or LVT, in the 1930s. The first two LVT prototypes were dubbed the Alligator and the Crocodile (even though neither is an amphibious creature). A decade after their development, LVTs were a key component in the success of the largest amphibious assault in human history at Normandy during World War II.

The stand-up paddleboard, or SUP, didn’t root itself into mainstream surfing culture until the last decade of the 20th Century, when stand-up paddleboarding was taught at surf schools in Hawaii. Surf instructor Brian Keaulana added “Beach Boy Surfing” to the Buffalo Big Board Contest in 2003, and in just over a decade, stand-up paddleboarding has exploded.
