Summer Fresh Water Surfing

 

Most fresh water surfing is done when both the water and air are cold.  Last weeks many Michigan surfers go to enjoy relatively warm temperatures for a rare summer swell.   Chris Matulis was able to test the new Matuli soft top surfboard.chris

Ready to set Sail

IMG_0689 (1)In Michigan there are endless places to go and see on a paddle board.  We wanted to have a board that we could take with us everywhere.  Most paddleboards are about 11 feet long and are not easy to transport.  You never know when you will have a extra half hour somewhere to go for a paddle.  With our inflatable sup, you can always keep a board in the trunk,of your car, or on your boat, ready for a Pure Michigan style adventure.   The boards inflate to 15 psi in about 5 min.   Pump SUP



New Matuli Inflatable Paddleboards for 2016!

Matuli  now has a high performance durable inflatable option for our Spring 2016 board lineup.  Inflatable SUP’s are perfect for rivers and for those who want the flexibility of not using a roof rack.   The boards are lightweight and can fit into a large backpack, when deflated.  Each board comes with a high pressure pump.

We have 2 designs a surf shape 10.6 and a displacement racing 12.6 design.

The North American Auto Show was very exciting this year.  A lot of auto manufactures were using action/adventure sports to help showcase their new designs.   We were really excited to be a part of Ford’s  display.   Ford used the Matuli  Fresh 10.6 paddleboards as a backdrop for the Ford Explorer.
