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
required but 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…bonus!
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 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
£3,500 for a board £900 for a Paddle, with no real options for less that’s of any
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 came down to 3 major areas:
1. Quality of the construction
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.
This led us on a quest to find the best
manufacturer that would work with us on making what we now have. The company
that we are using have been in the game for years, making high quality
surfboards and over recent years (nearly 10) SUP boards and Paddles (and for some of the
big boys too, but we cant mention names). The quality of the construction and
attention to detail has really been one of the key ingredients to our success. They
are happy to work with us and help us develop new ideas/shapes (see our "Set to
your height" Paddles). As with any new sport, change and innovation is
inevitable and we want to grow with the sport and become one of the market
leaders and innovators. We have proven this with the launch in the summer
of 2013 of our Mach #1 Range, which was really popular, received great reviews
and taught us a lot and led to our Mach #2 range. From our original quiver we
added a WindSUP, Yoga SUP and most recently a Full Carbon Race-board. We did offer an ISUP (inflatable SUP) but withf=drew that as we wanted to concentrate on hardboards. We will never stop with our R&D.
Neptune SUPs is aware that all this
manufacturing does have an effect on the environment, so we have taken steps to
become one of the only SUP Board makers worldwide that is Carbon Balanced. Not only for the future but we have insured that since its birth Neptune has been Balanced with a positive footprint.
