Our friend and fellow standup paddle waterperson Blakeney Sanford
is featured in Santa Barbara Magazine
this month...January 2009 issue...
It's an interesting read...she almost lost her life 2 years ago...instead of succumbing to self-pity, she reprioritized her life, and things started falling into place for her...
She is pictured here paddling on a Starboard 11'2" Ultimate Blend
with one of her gorgeous standup paddles that she lovingly makes...
Her boyfriend, and local waterman, Bennett Williams
is shown here wavesailing on a Starboard SUP Fish 9'8"
...betcha your SUP can't do that...;-)
He is also a great surfer...kiter...and standup paddle surfer
We have a 40' container of Starboard SUP's
showing up at our shop next week...all sizes...they have been very hard to keep in stock...demand far outstrips
supply, even though we're bringing them in by the container...we've sold hundreds of them this year...lots of very happy and satisfied customers

To keep up with the raging demand for standup paddlesurf gear, we've added Quick Blade standup paddles to our product lines...(MSRP $320)
QuickBlade products are the natural evolution of paddle performance founded on years of competitive racing by Jim Terrell. Jim's paddling career began in southwest Ohio on the Little Miami River near his hometown of Milford.
The signature feature of all QUICK BLADE paddles is excellent performance. A quick catch at the beginning and a clean exit at the end of the stroke prompted the name QUICK BLADE. Only after determining the ultimate requirements for performance, was the compromise of strength, durability, lightweight and cost addressed.

NEW: 2-piece Pohaku Standup Paddles
We are now offering two-piece paddles in 84" assembled length...can easily be cut to your desired size, and they have a stainless steel, spring-loaded pin, that connects the ferrule together for a strong connection.
Very convenient for traveling or just everyday use.
The 2-piece paddle is $349 and an optional compartmentalized bag is offered for $25.
