'I feel most at home in the water. I disappear. That's where i belong'-Michael Phelps
Stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is a great way to have fun on the water for people of all age’s, ability and size. Unlike other water-sports that take years to master and are dependent on certain conditions, SUPing can be enjoyed with a minimum of gear and effort and can be enjoyed all year round. You can SUP in the Sea, lakes and rivers—no waves are required but they are fun to play on. SUPing gives a full body workout so not only is this soothing for the soul, you are also burning calories and getting fit…bonus!
The idea behind Neptune SUPs was simple; Create a brand, Make great quality boards and paddles, Lose the massive mark-ups, Get more people on the water.
Based on the south coast of the UK (with our showroom/HQ in Eastbourne), the sea has always been a part of our lives. Coming from a Skateboarding, Surfing, Windsurfing & Snowboarding background from way back in the day, we have seen the SUP market grow over the last few years. It amazed us at how expensive it can be, up to over £4,000 for a board £900 for a Paddle, with no real options for less that are high quality. That’s what got us thinking (or, opened up a can of worms, depends of which of us you speak to). So, after long talks of what’s important in choosing a SUP we narrowed it down to 3 major areas:
1. Quality of the construction (we use the best materials, including; 3 layers of glass top & bottom)
2. Design (oh how vain we still are)
3. Price (you won't find better for less!)
What came next was a mission to fulfill all the above and bring it to market.
