The biggest demo tour of its kind, Starboard’s Tiki Tour rolled onto the shingle earlier this morning and before long Hayling’s West Beachlands was a buzzing throng of paddling chat, opinion, query and of course the opportunity to try a bunch of spangly new stand up paddle board gear.
With everything on show from new school wave shredding shapes, mellow easy going cruisers and super technical race SUPs there was something for everyone. Many paddlers used this as an opportunity to push their personal boundaries a little and try something new.
Demo events like the Starboard SUP UK Tiki Tour are fantastic gatherings and delivers the perfect platform for evolving as SUPers and increasing the knowledge bank with regards to SUP equipment. Hats must be doffed to all the Starboard UK crew who were on hand with huge amounts of enthusiasm and always eager to answer any questions and pass on information.
The Tiki Tour continues until July 5 – check the Tiki Tour poster for further dates in your local SUP neighborhood.
