Vietnam | Paddling Southeast Asia Episode 4

In the spring of 2017, Colorado climbing buddies Zach Mahone and David Peterson hopped on a plane and flew across the Pacific to Southeast Asia. Their plan was simple: travel with inflatable SUPs and explore as much water and rock as they could.

Their adventures took them from Vietnam to Cambodia to Thailand, experiencing a variety of colorful cultures, stunning locales and myriad people. You can find breathtaking photos and travel notes from the trip featured in the Fall 2017 issue of SUP magazine.

For now, paddle along with Mahone and Peterson in our exclusive four-part video series. In Episode 4, Zach and David head to Vietnam where they explore beautiful waterways, found a few climbing routes perfect for deep-water soloing and even go paddling in some underground caves.
