Happy New Year!
We are already at the end of January, but it is still the beginning of an amazing 2018! What are your goals this year? Where will your paddling life take you? Maybe a SUP surf trip or a wild river run? Maybe turn paddleboarding into your new gym? Check out our latest blog on paddle tracking tools here. Or maybe just a play days on the lake with some new friends? Whatever you have in store, we will be there to make it the best it can be! Yes, that sounds a little confident, but we are super excited to share we have a whole bunch of new stuff hitting the shelves. Fun new accessories, life-jackets for your SUP pup, lights and more! New 2018 boards by the best names in the business! Infinity, Starboard, SIC, Hobie, JP Australia – innovative shapers building designs to match your paddling goals. When it comes to performance and quality, never compromise. Trust the best and let us help you find the right gear.
More NEW exciting stuff for 2018 includes a new wrap around the shop van – FINALLY! We are really proud to see all of these little milestones come together. So if you see us driving by, throw us a nod or a wave, and we’ll wave back.
New stuff arriving…
We have more stuff rolling in every week. Here are just a few new items making their way on the shelves.
- MTI Adventure Wear: One of the highest quality personal flotation device (PFD) on the market! They specialize in one thing: designing and building USCG approved life jackets for what they like to call “human powered boating.” Canoe, Kayak, Raft, Sail or SUP. Comfortable with a great range of motion. Our favorites are the waist pfds and the doggie life-jackets. All in stock!
NP Surf (Water wear): From board shorts, hybrid walking shorts, and rash guards to wetsuits, helmets, booties and gloves, NP has a great grasp of comfort and protection for life on the water.

- Tuesday Night in Tempe – The group is growing and if you want to join us, we would love to have you. This is an “all-levels” paddle group so whether you are new to the sport or you want to get in some speed miles, chances are high there are others like you. Help us stay accountable and get out and paddle with this Vampire Crew! The sun is starting to set a little later these days, so we are getting some pretty cool skylines coming back. Meet every Tuesday at Tempe Town Lake Marina at 6:30 PM with your board, Tempe Permit and a light. Recommended attire would include light layers like a windbreaker and booties. Wet-suits are a little over-kill, but to each it’s own. If you need to rent a board, please call the shop to make arrangements in advance.
Sunset SUP Yoga at The Saguaro Hotel – Yep! Sunset SUP Yoga is back on Thursday nights starting February 22nd. This is a fun event for men and women. No experience necessary and each class is unique from one week to the next. You can be sure you will have a great time. Secure your spot using this link, SUP YOGA or feel free to call the shop with any questions. Reservations are required and they frequently sell out.
Full SUP Steam Ahead!
Calendar events are starting to get secured! You can count on new SUP fitness classes and Beach Rentals at Saguaro and Canyon Lake all summer long! Be sure to check our events calendar regularly or follow us on social media to plan your next paddle!
Hope everyone had a great Holiday season! We certainly did, but as usual, the time goes by too fast! We are going into 2018 strong!
See you on the water.
