Run by the ultra-knowledgeable Neil Pollett and his team they are located between Riviera Marine and Swashbucklers on Westhaven Drive, FLUX is a great place to start your SUP adventures.
“Supping is now officially the world’s fastest growing water sport for good reason. Not only is it great fun but its also it provides you with an all over body exercise program,” says Neil. “Only when you first launch a SUP yourself will you really start to appreciate the great diversity they do offer.”
As a customer of FLUX, you’ll get access to great advice and coaching from the team, who will make sure you start out with the right paddle technique - which is essential in staying upright and dry. SUPs come in all shapes and sizes, and they will also make sure that you purchase the right kind of board. They can rent a board to you for an hour or a weekend, so that you can ‘try before you buy’.
“Inflatable SUPs are one of the biggest sellers especially for boat owners, because they pack away easily below deck,” says Neil, who recommends looking for a board that will take high pressures for a better more rigid ride and a longer lifespan.
FLUX stock some of the leading brands of SUP’s including BIC, RED and NSP.
