Coached downwind group runs- two new videos

The wind does not look good for the next week, so we can't schedule any downwinders for the coming week, sorry.  When it looks like the tradewinds are coming back, I will send out an updated schedule of potential dates and times for coached group runs.  Several of you did a group run with me last week, thank you for participating!  I finally finished editing and posting the videos.

Here are two videos of group downwinders from last week with coaching tips voiced over:

January 7th downwinder with Peter, Kyle, Allan, Linda, and Patricia: 

January 10th downwinder with Sean and Hopper:

We are currently packing all the smaller rewards that we are able to ship now.  These items will go out this week. 

We've also had quite a few people write in and ask if they can still order these inflatables. We've added them to our website and can be pre-ordered until January 31st. These pre-orders through the website WILL NOT INCLUDE FREE SHIPPING. There will be a $70 flat rate shipping. 

You can find those pre-order inflatable SUP's here

Mahalos again to all of our backers. Hope to see you on the water.

Blue Planet Inflatable SUP Kickstarter Campaign has launched!

Blue Planet Inflatable SUP Kickstarter Campaign has launched!

 

We are excited to say that our kickstarter campaign for our newly designed Inflatable SUP line has successfully launched. Within just 24 hours we have made 20% of our goal so far! We spent more than 2 years developing our new inflatable SUP designs and after extensively testing them on a variety of conditions we decided to try and bring them to market at a much more affordable price than other High Quality Inflatable SUP's on the market right now. Our real goal is to get more people on the water, for less.

You can view our kickstarter project here:

We would love for you to become a backer and help us make this project a reality, but you can also help without donating by helping us spread the word.

Find us on Facebook and help spread the word.

Mahalo for any support and hope to see you on the water.
