Ocean Paddlesports Blog 2017

Seems I’ve been gone for awhile so 2017 is the time to reconnect with my sport and my customers and the family I call paddling. Here’s whats exciting, old and new for OCEAN PADDLESPORTS in 2017.Surfskis…As always we are the USA and Canadian distributor for FENN Surfskis! Did you know FENN is the largest manufacturer of surfskis in the world with a new factory in East London, South Africa. (not China Yea!!!) With the new S series, FENN rules the world cup circuit with the ELITE S. Watch out this year for USAs favorite paddler, Austin Keiffer to make a podium move on the world stage on his FENN Elite S! We are proud to sponsor him along the way!

Carbonology is another brand we have started bringing in from South Africa. This company makes many models, so we try to fit in the shapes that compliment what we don’t have in the FENN Brand. Check out the Boost.
