BY HENRIK FAHLÉN
SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. (in Swedish)

Presentations Today's two presentations come your way from Koszalin and Dayton. The one from Koszalin is by none other than PKN Koszalin organizer Gall Podlaszewski, and was done as part of our Global Cities Week. So follow Gall as she talks about her city (in Polish), PechaKucha-style.

Posters On the poster front today, we've added three new ones, including posters for the upcoming collaboration between PKN Istanbul and PKN Yerevan (which this time, is an invitation-only event -- pictured above is the poster from the Yerevan side), and the poster for tonight's PKN Taos Vol. 6, celebrating "the remarkable women of Taos." Photos We've started sharing more and more event galleries on our official PechaKucha Night Flickr account -- in the past it was only used for our Tokyo events -- and here are the latest photosets that have been added.

Glass That Produces Heat, Killing Architecture, and Birthday Wishes from Catania
Presentations In this presentation, part of a special PKN event in Miami (Vol. 14) that dealt with sustainability and the environment, Roz Gatewood introduces EnergyGlass, a type of window that can produce heat. This presentation (in Czech, from PKN Plzen Vol. 1) by Laco Tousek is about social exclusion and spatial segregation, and the social anthropologist's point of view on sharing urban spaces. Who wants to kill the street? Developers, politicians, and architects -- they are the creators of the barriers between people interaction. Using several samples of high valued architecture projects from all over the world, he portrays architecture as a killer of public spaces. Posters There are no new additions to the Tumblr blog today, so instead we highlight one of our recent uploads, in this case the poster you see above for PKN Bogota Vol. 9, happening on October 12.

Durban's Popular Bunnychow Fast Food, a 13-Year-Old Artist, and Photos from Tokyo

It has become synonymous with Durban and the large Indian community that lives there. In this presentation (from PKN Durban Vol. 7), Luke Comins and Chris Shappe share their appreciation for this flavourful meal. You wouldn't guess by the series of lovely images that make up this presentation (in Czech, from PKN Usti nad Labem Vol. 2), but they were all produced by 13-year-old Elizaveta Gvozdeva, who talks about the work that has come out of her art classes.

A Very Young Presenter, Stand Up Paddleboarding, and Photos from Cape Town
Presentations You're never too young to do a PechaKucha presentation! Meet Archie, aged 7, who takes the opportunity in his presentation (from PKN Derby Vol. 5) to introduce us to his friend Jeremiah, aged 6, who lives in Kenya. As we learn in Henrik Fahlen's presentation (in Swedish, from PKN Varberg Vol. 2), SUP stands for "Stand Up Paddleboarding," which means that you stand up on a big surfboard and use a paddle. This ancient form of surfing reemerged when surf instructors realized the benefits of it, that by being higher you can better see oncoming waves. Today, SUP has turned into the fastest growing water sport in the world. Posters We kick off the week on the Tumblr blog with this new poster from Aalborg, for the city's upcoming Vol. 10. It was designed by Helena Sokol. You'll find the full list of presenters with links on the official event page.
