April 6th Sunova Standup Demo and Shop Anniversary

The Sunova team is ending their east coast tour in Maine on Wednesday, April 6th. Tino and Rick will have almost the entire Sunova line with them for anyone to try, free. The weather is looking a little cold, so we will have wetsuits on hand for people to use if they don't have their own. Before you know it, warm weather will be here to stay, and there is no better way to celebrate that in Maine than grabbing your paddle and exploring the bays, beaches, rivers and lakes that make this such an awesome place to live.

2015 Free Board Give-away Recipients

It is with great pleasure, and humility, that I announce the "winners" of this year's Free Board Give-Away. Notice I said winnerS…yes, I couldn't pick just one. Once the submissions started coming in, I realized it would be impossible to pick out just one deserving person. Everyone deserves a standup board. That's pretty much the Soposup mantra.

Casco Bay Race Series Video

Every summer SOPOSUP has a Casco Bay Race Series. This year was a huge success. We had over 45 racers registered throughout the season. Here is a link to view the video from this summer made by Ben Keller of Dubious Honor Productions. Special thanks to SIC for supplying the grand prize: a brand new 14' SIC X-PRO Race Board.

Announcing the 2015 Casco Bay SUP Race Series

Last summer's race series was a huge success and probably the most fun I had all year. I met some great new paddlers, became close friends with a few I already new, and overall just had a ball paddling hard and laughing almost all the way.

This coming summer, we are making some significant changes to the race series, with a primary goal of making the event more accessible to beginner paddlers while maintaining and building on the competitive nature of the race at the same time.

Decisions....

A couple of the fastest 12-6's of 2014 on the shop floor. On the left is the Fanatic Falcon Flatwater at 24.5" wide. On the right is the SIC X-12 Pro, at 26" wide. Both are carbon construction. Either one could take you to the top step on the podium. At least you don't have to choose what color you want...they only come in red :D

2 very fast boards

Paddlecoach Jessica Rando comes to Soposup

We are super excited to announce that Jessica Rando will be coming to Maine on July 12th and 13th to teach a series of paddling clinics through Soposup. Jessica is a professional athlete and paddler, winning numerous gold medals in Dragonboat racing before turning to Standup Paddleboarding a few years ago, where she has already won over a dozen first place finishes. But more importantly, she is a great teacher and a ton of fun to be around.
Here is the schedule of events:
