Contest recognizes real and inspirational “sisters” who support others every day

OSCEOLA, WISC. – (May 9, 2014) Through its new website, Aqua-Bound Stand-Up paddles are encouraging women to nominate their Super Sisters – the women that they count on to stand up for them and support them, no matter the issue.

Aqua-Bound, which recently expanded its line of stand-up paddles, is sponsoring the contest to acknowledge that standing up for each other is a very real way to create a community of women. According to Aqua-Bound Marketing Manager Pat Trepp, “The phrase ‘stand up’ definitely has several meanings. While we align it with our new paddles used in stand-up paddleboarding (SUP), it also carries the powerful meanings of support, inspiration and a healthy outlook on life,” she says.



New paddles launched due to increasing popularity of aquatic sport.

OSCEOLA, WISC. – (March 15, 2014) Three new Aqua-Bound Stand-Up Paddles were introduced by Branches, LLC today to meet the demand for this increasingly popular sport. The new stand-up paddles include “The Spark,” for beginners, “The Freedom,” for intermediate paddleboarders, and “The Challenge,” for more seasoned paddlers.

According to Aqua-Bound President Ed Vater, the company conducted extensive market research, and learned that stand-up paddleboarders are looking for paddles at mid-range prices with important features. “They want paddles that are durable, lightweight and, in their words, ‘Look really cool,’” he said.
