December SUP Demo

Despite the “STORM ALERT” alarms for rain being sounded by the local media outlets…we were greeted by mostly sunny and calm conditions all day here in Santa Barbara…perfect conditions for the last of our extremely popular free “try before you buy” SUP demos of the year…

BTW, we are getting the much needed rain as I type this into the ‘puter this AM…

Our monthly SUP demos and private / small group lessons really help people see and feel the differences between the boards that we sell and represent, against some of the cheaper and inferior discount and “outlet store” offerings that try to seduce value shoppers…”ATTENTION SUP SHOPPERS, THERE’S A BLUE-LIGHT SPECIAL ON ISLE 2″…Boards from $799…FREE Paddles”…

WHATEVERS…;-)

REAL Value means BANG FOR THE BUCK…and, it is also a BIG component in RESALE value of the product when you are ready to move it along…what a BUZZKILL to find out that your board has NO RESALE VALUE…because it, and the company that built it, are not focused on long term customer satisfaction and sustainability…

Our product lines hold their resale value…most of our Starboard SUP’s have resale values of $1000, or more, after a season of use…especially, if you store them in a bag, like we do…

We ONLY handle QUALITY products…not distressed merchandise…

Even our least expensive boards and paddles are higher quality than the “best” outdated and overstock SUP’s and paddles being discounted by others…

REMEMBER: YOU ALWAYS GET WHAT YOU PAY FOR…

Personal fitness trainer, Jon Ham, from FITNESS ON THE RUN came up to Santa Barbara for this demo and went home with an unexpected new desire…;-)

SUPSports sales/instructional staff member, Rob Graham, float testing (220 lbs) my new 8’10” North Pacific wing swallow…sheesh…I practically had to wrestle my new boards away from the crew at this demo…

hmmmmm…what color should I order?

Guy on the new 10’1″ Blair blowup…Bob ended up buying one…

The new North Pacific 10’6″ stinger gun…a first of it’s kind, *REAL* SUP gun designed for bigger MAINLAND waves…but, Deb loved paddling it on flat water just because it glides and tracks so well…even with it set up as a quad!

LIGHTWEIGHT…STRONG…BRILLIANT!!!
