Dinghy Locker Is New Dealer for Stand Up Paddle Boards


FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Dinghy Locker @ Landfall Paddles Through Summer As New North American Dealer for BIC Sports Stand Up Paddle Boards

Stamford, CT – July 13, 2011

Dinghy Locker @ Landfall announced today that it now carries Stand Up Paddle Boards (SUPs). Selected as a BIC Sports North American Dealer, Dinghy Locker now has the Jungle E-Comp and Oxbow EpoxyCruiser SUPs in stock as well as a complete line of paddles and accessories including the Dinghy Locker’s regular selection of PFDs, wetsuits and apparel.

"The fast-growing sport of stand up paddleboarding (SUP) is a fun, easy way to go play on the water. With a minimum amount of equipment, you can paddle anything from ocean surf to lakes and rivers," commented Jamie Gilman, manager of the Dinghy Locker. "Paddleboarding offers an amazing full body workout and is becoming a favorite cross-training activity for skiers, snowboarders and other athletes. And since you're standing at your full height, you'll enjoy excellent views of everything from sea creatures to what's on the horizon. It's almost like walking on water."

The BIC Jungle E-Comp is a high-performance board for beginner to advanced riders looking to explore both flatwater-cruising and small-wave surfing. BIC Sports’ E-Comp construction features a custom molded EPS core/fiberglass/epoxy board in a thin yet extremely durable layer of thermoformed copolymer creating a stiff, lightweight board that is 30% more durable than a standard epoxy board.

The Oxbow Cruiser is based on great all-round performance primarily on flat water, but with the ability to be surfed. Shaped with a long flat section through the middle and lightly rockered through the nose and tail, the boards are sensational flat-water paddlers, tracking true and straight yet easy to turn with a little weight on the tail when required.

"Over the last three decades, BIC Sport has opened up the enjoyment of watersports to hundreds of thousands of people by offering high quality products at a reasonable price,” commented Captain Henry Marx, president and founder of Landfall. "Now the same phenomenon is being repeated in the new sport of Stand Up Paddle and, as always, Landfall and Dinghy Locker are on the forefront, offering our customers the finest products available."

In-store, online and at sailing events, Dinghy Locker @ Landfall promotes dinghy racing and recreational boating in the U.S. "Since 2008, Dinghy Locker has been focused on the needs of small boat sailors," added Gilman. "We’ve seen a large increase in interest in Standup Paddleboarding and it was a logical expansion for us."
