Camp SUP


SAN CLEMENTE, CA (SEPTEMBER 4, 2014) — Salt Life, a lifestyle apparel brand that embraces everything ocean life including surfing, fishing, diving and paddling, has teamed up with SUPmagazine to present Camp SUP September 13-14 at Doheny State Beach. Camp SUP is a unique two-day event created by SUP magazine to introduce new people into the sport, encourage everyday paddlers to improve their skills and give everyone a chance to try out the latest greatest hard and soft goods from leading SUP brands.

“We at Salt Life are proud to be the presenting sponsor of the first annual Camp SUP,” said Salt Life’s Jeff Stillwell. “This sport embodies living the Salt Life and we hope to be a part of this great event for years to come.”

Additionally, SIC Maui, a premiere manufacturer in the standup paddling world, has signed on to run the Grom Clinic at Camp SUP. Aspiring young paddlers are encouraged to join the SIC team at 3 p.m. each day for an hour-long tutorial guaranteed to get them stoked for life.

“We are really excited to be involved with Camp SUP and for SIC to be the presenting sponsor of the Grom Clinic,” said SIC’s Marketing Manager Braly Joy. “SIC’s goal with youth programs is to help get kids on the water and make sure their first experience is a good one and a safe one so they come back.”

Camp SUP is the first event of its kind in the sport-part-demo, part instructional camp, and all about fun. Nikki Gregg, Gillian Gibree, Dave Boehne and Molokai Champion Connor Baxter have all signed on as clinicians for the two-day beach party.
