The feeling of finding adventure is exhilarating and spontaneous, but the feeling of finding adventure on the water is a joyful, freeing experience known well by the masters at Lakeshore Paddleboard Company. Since LPC’s beginning four years ago, finding freedom on lakes and rivers is the name of their game. What makes LPC unique to the flatwater world? Well, unique to the industry a few of LPC’s boards are hollow-core versus foam-core, using a technology done by few in the world. LPC’s boards can be up to 6-8 lbs. lighter than your standard standup paddleboard. The Betty Board is the lightest board on the planet weighing in at only 19 pounds!
From STSUP’s beginnings in 2010, Lakeshore Paddleboard Company has played an important role in providing South Tahoe Standup Paddle with quality product designed for people of all ages and abilities. This has enabled STSUP to provide a memorable experience for people getting out on the water. For us here in Lake Tahoe, we are a fan of their lightweight, stable, and durable product that is consistent and good looking, too! But LPC’s boards are used all over the country, including a world-record 2400 mile journey down the Mississippi River! Check out this video to see the details of his epic trip…
LPC’s boards provide stability and glide as well as a light frame for easy accessibility to the beach or even through the narrow, shallow patches of the Mississippi. No matter where your lakeshore is, LPC has a product that is worth every dollar.
For now, they’re keeping distribution domestic only throughout the US and Canada, but in this week’s podcast, Sean Adleo, shares LPC’s vision for going global in the years to come. As standup paddlboarding sweeps the world, companies like LPC and shops like STSUP prepare to help people experience the benefits and joys of standup paddling. LPC will be present with plenty of boards to demo at this year’s 2013 Race the Lake of the Sky in late June here on the South Shore. The lakeshore will be home to thousands of paddleboards that weekend and a multitude of festivities, both on and off the water. And until then, STSUP has the complete lineup of 2013 Lakeshore Paddlebaords for you to come in and test drive! We are here to help you “Find your Lakeshore.”
