Now that summer is in full swing here in West Michigan, people are trying to get outside and enjoy it as much as possible. While people are seeking different activities to do, one is getting increasingly popular: Stand Up Paddle Boarding (SUP).
As SUPing is on the rise, we’ve noticed that people are getting more curious about differences in board sizes and styles. We’ve decided the best way to answer these questions would be to have people get out on the water and try the different boards themselves.
Therefore we are proud to be sponsoring free weekly SUP demos for the rest of this summer for people interested in the sport to come out and try our boards. Whether you’re a fanatic looking for a new board or a newcomer looking to see if this could be a sport for you, everyone is welcome.
Generally these demos are held on a Wednesday or Thursday (depending on the weather) every week at the Grand Haven City Beach from 7:30-9 pm. Basically how they operate is we bring out 8 or so boards then people drop by and try any of them out for as long as they like.
Not only do we find this a great way to help people decide on a board and discover the sport, but these demos give us a chance to stay involved in the community. As this is extremely important to us, demos are an essential part of our business.
So keep an eye out for our next demo announcement on Facebook and Twitter or email us asking to be put on the demo email list so we can contact you personally. Come enjoy a great evening of paddle boarding and friendship!
