Successful Demo Weekend
Do you like to try before you buy? Of course you do, and so do we.
Here at The SUP Company we love everything SUP. We’re also well aware of the investment it takes to buy a new board, so we want to make sure you get the one that is just right for you. Especially if you’ve little experience with the sport, making the right choice can be a real headache, especially with so many boards to choose from.
So, on the weekend of 6-7 April 2019 we’ve opened our doors to stand up paddle-boarders of all walks of life to try out a variety of boards and help them with making the right decision. Be it amateurs of paddling looking for their first board, experienced users searching for an upgrade or even hardcore SUP-ers keen to try out the newest high-end race and touring boards on the market, there was a little something for everyone attending.
The event took place in our own backyard, on the river Itchen behind the Woodmill Activity Centre where we were joined by representatives from the top paddleboard brands such as Red Paddle Co, Fanatic, Starboard, Jobe, JP and Naish. Our expertise coupled with that of our partners made the event area an oasis of information for everything SUP related, one that customers could happily abuse
Once on the grass, paddlers where given a selection of over 50 unique boards of different builds, shapes and sizes to try out for as long as they wanted. As a cure for the cold water and the exhausting paddling, coffee, tea and cookies where out for grabs throughout the day inside our shop.
Long story short: the event was a massive success, as everyone who walked through our doors left home with something from us, be it a brand new board, a better paddle or simply the experience of paddling a specific board for the first time.
So, a massive thank you from us here at the SUP Company to everybody who attended and all our partners that helped make this event possible!
If you have a board in mind, but are unsure whether it is right for you or not, do not forget that our demo center in Southampton is open for inquiries 7 days a week.
