February marked the first of many shows for this year and it was great to talk to so many of our lovely customers at the NEC Camping, Caravan & Motorhome Show. We have lots on again this month including the release of our new range, a trip to the Houses of Parliament to talk about safety within the industry and we will be exhibiting at the Ideal Home Show at London Olympia.
Our range is getting bigger and better than ever for 2022! We've listened to your great feedback and added a few more boards to the range to appeal to even more people. Take a look at the new products below:
Our full dropstitch kayaks have proved to be a game changer over the last year! So much so that we have added two new colours to the range which are available to pre-order for delivery in April. Prices start from £699.00...
Sports Touring Pro
12'6''x 29''x 6''
The new dimensions of the touring board give it a slick profile which glides through the water faster than any of our other boards. The slim and streamline shape makes paddling effortless and the extra length gives you improved tracking performance with heaps of volume and stability.
Elite Pro Sport
10'10'' x 30'' x 4.75''
Our Elite Pro Sport was designed to bridge the gap between our all-rounder boards and touring boards. Slightly longer in length and two inches narrower than the standard Elite boards this is a great upgrade for paddlers wanting to progress from the standard 10'6'' board with its improved glide speed while still being more maneuverable than the touring board. This board is our first board to be constructed using cross stitch technology making it 20% lighter.
New Partnership - Ripple Rebels
We are proud to have teamed up with local Community Interest Company Ripple Rebels who now have a fleet of Sandbanks Style paddleboards ready for people to learn to SUP and join a supportive community. The team at Ripple Rebels believe that everyone should have access to the physical and mental benefits of stand up paddleboarding and are working hard to reduce barriers into the sport such as age, gender, social and cultural background and finances.
Lynne and the team have been awarded grants to provide Holiday Activities and Food sessions during school holidays for young people eligible for free school meals and will provide training courses for young people in low income families. The team also run free SUP safety & skills sessions for other local charities.
Ripple Rebels are a community club affiliated with British Canoeing and have a base at the beautiful Longham Lakes in Ferndown. Members of the Ripple Rebel community can benefit from a limitless supply of support, weekly club sessions, training and a chance to try out new disciplines such as SUP polo and SUP racing.
