What got you into the SUP business?
We started selling SUP as a counter seasonal offering for our snow business - Snowcentre. SUPcentre has provided a great balance during the summer months, keeping our staff busy, motivated and enjoying a new sport. It is also a great activity to keep our snow customers fit and strong during the summer, which means less injuries come winter.
What is your most memorable moment in SUP?
SUP surfing clean 2-3ft surf with a group of mates, no one else out...only a pod of Dolphins to keep us company.
How does SUP complement your business?
As above, provides a great balance to our snow business.
Where do you like to paddle?
Te Arai, Muriwai, Gisborne and Omaha for the surf. Auckland is surrounded by water so great flat water/downwinding options everywhere!
What is your favorite local restaurant for an after paddle meal?
The new Mexicali Fresh spot in Mission Bay is turning into a new favourite. Their upstairs bar is going to be a cracker this summer after a paddle. Bring on the margaritas.
What is your favorite local SUP event?
I really enjoy our free have a go sessions. This is a bi-weekly event where we introduce first timers to the sport, free of charge. Lots of family fun in a mellow, friendly environment. Sharing the stoke.
