SUP: SMIK SUP now in the UK

SMIK SUP, Scott McKercher’s new stand up paddle board brand is now available in the UK from Ktwo Distribution. Bike Birt, owner of Ktwo, got in touch with the below.

‘Many of you will recognise the name Scotty McKercher. Even if you don’t, you will certainly recognise the name of the brand with whom he designs; Starboard. He still designs a popular range of stand up paddle boards for Starboard, but recently branched out to develop his own line of stand up paddle boards. And this is all with the blessing of Starboard, which shows an impressive level of mutual respect.

With eight years of SUP riding under his belt, Scott can hold his own amongst the world’s best SUP surfers. He’s even managed to win a SUP State Round against the Jakovich brothers in WA (Australia). If you’re near good waves in Western Australia chances are you’ll probably spot Scott – just doing a bit of ‘testing’.

Scotty’s Smik brand is a partnership with a new state of the art facility using a unique production method that utilises a compression molding technique that has not been seen the industry so far. This brings huge heritage to a new technology that has the potential to really shake up the top of the sport. As such, Smik will be pushing the envelope of performance riding. It’s a new chapter for those who want to push their riding skill levels as far as they can go.
