Surf Technicians Partners with Blackfish Paddles
Surf Technicians, LLC is proud to announce that it has signed a long-term agreement with premiere sports distribution company Blackfish Paddles Ltd. to distribute, market and sell its products throughout Canada.
Blackfish Paddles has a long and successful history as a standout supplier of Stand-Up Paddle equipment for a number of years. They have assembled some of the best minds in Canada to bring our new and exciting product to market. John Vance, CEO of Surf Technicians said “We have waited a long time to find the right combination of skills and chemistry before partnering with someone in the extremely important Canadian market. We couldn’t be happier with the combination of market understanding, logistics skills, location and the business knowledge that are needed to take our brands to the next level.”
David Smart, Blackfish CEO said, “The combination of the great Surftech and NSP product lines give us the ability to satisfy the needs of just about any consumer in Canada. In addition to the excellent SUP product offering, we will also be offering the NSP and Surftech brands of surfboards rounding out our portfolio. In the last couple of years we have seen some opportunities in the Canadian SUP and Surf market, but we waited until we could partner with the best possible brand. We couldn’t have dreamed of a better partner than Surf Technicians with all its brands.”
Smart continued, “We will be attending the upcoming Surf Expo Show Surf on January 8 through 10th. We are looking forward to meeting with our Canadian retail partners at the show as well as talking to the other International partners attending.”
Vance finished, “Blackfish will play a pivotal role in bringing Surf Technicians brands and proprietary constructions to Canada. This will ensure the best service and product at the best attainable prices for your retail customers. We welcome them aboard and are looking forward to a long-lasting relationship.”
