SUP Demos :: Next One July 5th :: Open July 4th

In the spirit of paying it forward, we've taught hundreds and hundreds of people how to standup paddle...and, we know that many have in turn, paid it forward themselves...changing the world one standup paddler at a time, as it were...;-)

We have another of our "try before you buy" demos planned this Sunday (July 5th)...
RSVP for all day demo and BBQ...
Call or email the shop for more info...if you can't make it, ask about our private lesson "money back when you buy" program...

A few shots from last week's demo...this was a semi-private demo for members of Ty Warner's Coral Casino...we've supplied their members with some top quality Starboard SUP's and racks to match the decor of the Coral Casino Beach and Cabana Club...

Naish 12', 14', & 17' Glide

We just received the first AST version of the 12' Naish Glide (MSRP $1599)...
We have a hard time keeping the 12' Naish Glide (MSRP $1899) in stock...these new AST models are going to be RED HOT at that pricing level...







Also, coming in August is the new 14' Naish Glide and the new 17' Naish Glide...these boards are already very competitive...L@@K at the results of the OluKai SUP race last week...





"Maui presented the competitors of the 2009 Olu Kai race from Maliko to Kanaha with unexpected and untypical conditions. Due to the absence of wind, the Maliko run which is usually windy turned into a California style paddle board race with glassy conditions.

Dave Kalama set his new Naish Glide 17’0” preproduction sample to good use winning the unlimited class, while Jerry Bess,Kai Lenny and Michi Schweiger proved the Naish Glide 14’0” to be a board to count on by winning their classes in the 14 foot fixed fin category.

Neptune Paddles has a couple of pics of Dave Kalama and Kai Lenny from the race...





Naish is now looking forward to see new Glide boards prove the current success during the 4th Annual Naish Paddle Championships on Maui."

SUP Frenzy

We've been waaaay too busy this week to blog lately...no complaints...keep the orders coming...we'll be adding 3 new Standup Paddle Sports staff members to try and keep up...

We've been keeping the freight companies moving...SUP orders this week are stimulating the economy right now from Denver...Detroit...Boston...Maine...Kentucky...North and South Carolina...Oregon...Phoenix...Texas...Florida...and, border to border in California...we have had tremendous walk-in/drive-in business at our paddleboard warehouse with paddleboard direct pricing...;-)

Did we mention the containers of standup paddle boards that we are receiving to restock the shelves?...we are getting several more paddleboard shipments this week...always fresh inventory...and, EVERY SINGLE SUP THAT WE STOCK HAS A RECESSED HANDLE...how hard is that to figure out?!?!

Cali Central Coast Goes Off!

We finally had a great run of surf with equally great weather...and, a few pics and customer testimonials are starting to trickle in from our STOKED clients...



Howzit Warren & crew,
Thank you for taking the time to set me up with the Kanaha Quick Blade paddle.
It was late in the day and I appreciate you helping me out.

Great customer service!

Mahalo,
Woody (Santa Barbara County, CA.)







Hey Wardog, whats happening?

Bro, I can't say enough good things about my 9'8 and the customer service I received from you guys.

The surf in Pismo Beach has been off the chain lately, giving me a chance to put my SUP to the test.

Here is a photo from the other day. The sets were about 8' to 10' and my board did not let me down.

Cheers!
AJ Santana (Pismo Beach, CA)



Here are some Photos from last Sunday in Santa Barbara County - 80 degrees outside at noon.
