"Our long-term goal is to make life easier for paddlers and their coaches. If we can take away the worry about what happens off the water, it will translate into better competition results. In 2023, we are partnering with Starboard to offer board rental at ICF and Euro Tour events, as well as organizing training camps and clinics. Union Paddlers' goal is to make a platform that connects paddlers with training camps, clinics, and rental solutions. This venture aims to make the sport of paddling more accessible and easier to participate in by providing paddlers with a range of options for training and competition. Through our solutions and partnerships with event organizers, we offer paddlers opportunities to participate in various events and camps regardless of their skill level or location. The goal is to not only promote the sport of SUP racing but also to foster a sense of community and collaboration among paddlers and develop the sport itself.”
