2015 – Getting Cranking For Another Great Season!

Quick heads-up as we get the new Ocean Paddlesports product line cranking for another exciting season in the Pacific Northwest!  2015 looks to be another great paddling season as our sport continues to evolve and new designs hit the market to compliment the Fenn flotilla.  New for this year, the ELITE-S, which had lots of design input from downwind guru Dawid Mocke, is currently the top selling elite boat in South Africa.  It’s been described as ‘super fast & stable’ – an Elite hull with a lower volume deck (w/ concave paddle catch area) & the entire cockpit has been bumped up to help catch those fast moving downwind runners.  Best news is we’ll have one for demo in Bellingham shortly, so we’ll have an opportunity to test drive it ourselves!
Also, Ocean Paddlesports has worked hard to have a full line skis in the PNW.  Currently we have; Vac Carbon Elite SL’s, Hybrid Glides & Sparks, Vac Carbon XT, Vac Glass Swordfish, and more boats will be arriving soon – two new Blue Fins will be arriving next week! Plus a full line of paddles & paddling garb, please feel free to give me a shout for a demo paddle.
We look forward to another exciting year of paddling as our sport continues to grow and more international downwind events (Gorge Downwind Fest!) get established in the PNW.  As the PNW athlete rep for Ocean Paddlesports, I look forward to continue to bringing quality products which are designed & built by surf ski paddlers in the Fenn SA factory. I would like to give all local paddlers the opportunity to demo the innovative designs & quality construction which Fenn continues to bring to our local paddling community!
Hope to see you on the water soon!
