SUP Surfing in December

Cracked Starboard SUP

Just a quick update about my cracked starboard SUP. I spoke directly to customer services yesterday, rather than through the retailer. As is always the case when on the phone they were helpful and polite but of course unwilling to commit to anything. I explained the mystery behind the whole thing and they decided that it was...
