Surftech introduces a number of new technologies
Surfersvillage Global Surf News, 5 August, 2014 - Surftech will be releasing its 2015 paddleboard lineup, including new recreational, touring, and racing paddleboards, and stand up paddleboards at Outdoor Retailer in Salt Lake City this week. Founded in 1989, Surftech has been at the forefront of product innovation in the surf, stand up paddleboard, and paddleboard industry for the last 25 years.
"We are excited to introduce a number of new technologies, products, and programs to the industry," said Chris Dunn, Surftech CEO. "We have been hard at work to bring some truly innovative products and programs to meet the needs of the increasingly dynamic stand up paddling and paddleboard communities."
The most anticipated releases of 2015 is the expansion of the industry-dominating Bark Paddleboard line. The new line has a number of race, downwind, and excursion designs for stand up paddling, and the addition of a 14' "Commander" to the hugely successful traditional Paddleboard lineup.
The 12' Commander is the same board that, out of the box, was paddled by both the men's and women's stock class winners of the 2014 Molokai 2 Oahu Paddleboarding World Championships this year. The new lineup will feature the proven "Pro-Elite" carbon technology and will introduce Surftech's AST technology into the lineup, offering entry level solutions to the retail environment.
The new 2015 board lineup also includes a number of new touring and recreational boards and constructions.
"The 2015 board lineup in all categories is going to turn a lot of heads at Outdoor Retailer this year," said Sammy Nigh, Vice President of Global Sales. "The product and technologies we are launching this year, along with the new programs we are putting in place for retailers, make Surftech the brand to build with."
On the technology front, Surftech is releasing several new advancements in board construction. The new board lineup is focused on the inclusion of carbon fiber, exotic composite cores, and new lamination processes, making for the best performing equipment on the market.
Surftech will be at the Open Air Demo (booth 290) on August 5th and will be at booth 34077 at the Outdoor Retailer Summer Market Expo August 6th thru August 9th.
