How to use your new Blue Planet inflatable SUP board

Congratulations on your new board!  Please watch this video before using your board for the first time:

 

 

Please note: To avoid damage to your board, do not leave it fully inflated in the hot sun for a long time as the pressure will increase with the temperature.  To store the board in the sun, release some pressure to avoid damage.

If you got one of the Bravo 12V electric pumps with the board, watch this video with basic instructions as well:

M2O race board buy back program

We have been receiving calls from customers looking to rent a board for the Molokai to Oahu race in July 2014.  The performance downwind boards we have available for rent have been booked for the Molokai race months ago, so unfortunately we have no carbon downwind rental boards left to offer for the race.

For those that still need a board for the race, we can offer the following:  purchase a new race board from us, after the race you can either keep the board, sell it yourself, or we will offer to buy it back for 30% off the new price (if there is no major damage to the board).   This offer is only for new boards purchased from our shop less than one month before the race and sold back within a week after the race.

We have great deals available on 2013 SIC boards:

14' Bullet, full carbon: $2199

17'4 Bullet, full carbon with steering system: $3099

We also have the 2014 models available.  

If you are interested, please order the board at least one month before the race.

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.

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

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