New 2016 Fatstick stand up paddle and surfboards

Summer may be a distant memory but we’ve certainly not been resting on our laurels here at Fatstick HQ. Over the last few weeks we’ve been steadily accumulating a whole bunch of new stand up paddle and surfboards for inclusion in our 2016 range. So without further ado, let’s check them out.

First up is our Wooden Wonder longboard/nose rider surfboard. Coming in two lengths, so you can tune you ride to wave conditions and your own personal style, choose between a 7.6ft or 9.2ft – www.supdirect.co.uk/fatstick-shop/4584165157/wooden-wonder-surfboard/10225659

Fatstick hit Watergate National SUP Champs

Team Fatstick missioned it to Cornwall this weekend for the BSUPA National SUP Championships. A chance to score some surf, give Fatstick young gun Drew a taste of the UK comp scene and soak up some general Kernow ambience, it was a cracking few days in the South West and we’re already missing it. Big shouts to Russ Lees, Nick Kingston and Drew for making it a banger. Hopefully more waves soon!

If you haven’t checked out the Fatstick range of surf SUPs then hit up our shop and get involved – www.supdirect.co.uk/fatstick-shop/4584165157/fatstick-fish-wave-sup-8’6/7870540

Swell times! Surfing race and touring stand up paddle boards

With summer now but a distant memory it’s definitely NOT time to hang up your paddle for winter. In fact it’s quite the opposite! Autumn, winter and spring can be the best months for getting afloat and certainly the best time for scoring surf.

But what if all you own is a race or touring SUP? Well, have no fear as taking these babies into surf is more than doable. OK, you’re not going to be ripping huge turns and chucking buckets of spray, but that isn’t the point. Most people get hooked on stand up paddling because of the glide. And it’s this gliding feeling that’s heightened when sliding into a few small swells.

Yep, we said small, not big. If large open faced liquid walls are your thing then you really should be looking at our surf Fish SUP range – www.supdirect.co.uk/fatstick-shop/4584165157/fatstick-fish-wave-sup-8’6/7870540. If, however, you want to increase the amount of days you can glide on swell then consider riding your pointy nose SUP in waves.

 

Not only will this teach more about board trim and how to set a rail, you’ll be able to pick up even ankle snappers. And when waves increase a little, with skill you can be skimming across the brine, surging along on your race or touring SUP and covering much greater distance than you normally would.

For existing surfers it’s another tool in your arsenal to maximise time on the water. Those paddlers who don’t own a surf stick should find comfort in knowing you don’t actually need one. There’s never been a better way for getting the most out of your race and touring SUP. So as we said at the start of this post, now’s NOT the time for a winter of hibernation, now’s the time for stepping up and snagging a few waves.

As further evidence you can see SUP Mag UK editor Tez Plavenieks testing our 12.6ft race SUP in the vid above. Here the waves are barely ankle high. In fact, the ripple’s he’s riding aren’t even waves at all. It’s actually wake from a passing cruise ship! Yet again highlighting how you don’t actually need decent conditions to surf when you own a race or touring stand up paddle board. So what’s stopping you? Time to get involved…

A huge thanks from us all at Fatstick SUP!

Wow is all I can say! From all the team at Fatstick I’d like to say a massive thank you for your support at the National Watersports Festival on Hayling Island. We had an amazing event; the first we have done on this scale. It was a hard slog getting there, full of nerves and not knowing what to expect. But we did it and had a super successful event!

We had great reviews of our SUPs, made some great new friends and even sold a few boards! I’d like to thank Russ Nick, Sam (demo guys) for their help on the stall running around dealing with everyone . A big well done to Will Littleboy for smashing the races and winning. Thanks to Simon Jeffrey for his help and the pictures and thank you to all who dropped by the stand. But on a last note I’d like to thank my wife and my special little man for your love and support on this journey. See you all on the beach. Reubs…
