Red Paddle Co, makers of inflatable stand up paddleboars, is giving consumers across North America the opportunity to put its boards to the test during the 2017 Summer Demo Tour. Paddlers can also try their hands at testing out the tour’s co-sponsor FUSION’s STEREOACTIVE. The 42-stop tour will kick off on May 12th, 2017 in Seattle, Wash.
Red Paddle Co’s team will travel to tour stops across North America to encourage local community members, beginner paddlers, and seasoned experts, to get out on the water and sample boards. Red Paddle Co will provide a wide range of boards for people to try at each stop, in an effort to connect consumers and future paddlers with their local dealers and to create an unforgettable paddling experience.
“We know that spending time on Red Paddle Co boards in the water is the single best tactic in influencing consumer purchasing decisions,” said Andrew Meakin, North American Marketing Manager “Through this tour, we’ll give customers the opportunity to appreciate the high quality, ease of use and packability of our inflatable boards in the field, just as they would if they owned a Red Paddle Co board.”
Each event is free to the public, and will feature a wide range of Red Paddle Co boards, including beginner boards, yoga boards, touring boards and racing boards. The Demo Events will also feature the 22-foot-long, four-person, Red Dragon Race Board. Attendees will be encouraged to round up three friends and to take the Red Dragon Race Board out for a spin. In addition, anyone that signs up for their local demo tour stop will automatically be entered into a contest to win an all-expenses-paid trip to the Dragon World Series Championship in Barbados from Oct. 28-30, 2017.
