We’ve seen it in the news; paddling has taken lives. Until someone in the Standup Paddle industry comes up with new technology that improves safety, a well-designed leash (along with a life jacket and some common sense) is your best bet.
Because just like any avid paddlers, Rich Price, Founder of Solace Sup, has had his close call and doesn’t ever want you to end up in the same situation. He cares about your safety so he’s giving a way FREE SUP leashes while supplies last. All you have to do is pay for shipping and handling.
Standup Journal Online is also promoting Sup Safety best practices in our NEW online FORUM on Standup for Safety. This is a concern and awareness for ALL of US. Add your voice to the conversation, celebrate brands like Solace Sup who are stepping UP and standing OUT in the realm of Sup Safety. We need you!
This is good to know as I gear up for my Standup Paddling adventure with Rich on Chesapeake Bay in a couple of weeks. There’s nothing more relieving for a beginner paddler like me than knowing that I’ll be in
good safe hands.
