SHARK have been designing and manufacturing great quality inflatable paddle boards in their own factory since 2017. Their range of boards suits all abilities from beginner to racer and everybody in between. We use SHARK boards for our hire and school fleet because they provide a great platform to learn on and the construction is robust enough to handle everything a seasons daily use can throw at them.
SHARK have partnered with The Shark Trust to help protect this amazing and endangered species and its marine habitat that inspired the brand, the performance of the boards. In addition SHARK are working hard to ensure their boards are manufactured responsibly and with as minimal impact on the environment as possible. For example, you won't find any plastic used in the packaging of the boards and accessories.
SEA LION are a British SUP company that is committed to producing high quality and the most sustainably focussed paddle boards possible.
The board's deck pads are made with an algae biomass and the board carry handles are made from recycled PET water bottles and covered with natural rubber, rather than petroleum-based neoprene. Over 80 recycled plastic water bottles are also used to make the back packs.
In addition SEA LION donate 1% of all sales to the Marine Conservation Society through their partnership with 1% For The Planet.
A great board brand with great environmental core values.
At just SUP uk we believe that if you use the river for recreational purposes (or any body of water for that matter) you have a responsibility to minimise the impact you have upon it.
For this reason we are proud to work with brands that share our view and are actively working to improve the way our equipment is manufactured.
Being on or in the water is a very special experience and it is an environment
that we must not take for granted.
