The Road Ahead
We are stoked for all the new opportunities that lie ahead of us this year! So much has evolved with our little company in just two years and so much more is ahead of us.
This week we began setting up our second location at Ram Point Marina in Wakefield. We believe that paddlers will love this location and all that it has to offer. You can either take a leisurely paddle up the Saugatucket River up to the Mews Tavern or be a bit more adventurous and explore all that Point Judith Pond has to offer. Our Wakefield location will also feature our first store where you can purchase boards, kayaks, paddling gear, lunch and other refreshments.
Also new for this year is our redesigned web site and reservation system. From the web site you can see the schedule of available rentals at both locations, yoga classes and our newest rental option, Grab n’ Go. Grab n’ Go is a new feature and it lets you rent a board or kayak for the day and take it to your favorite paddling spot. We give you everything you need including the roof top tie down system.
As you explore our site you will see that we have a snappy new logo too. We have an awesome marketing team lead by Adam Wotherspoon of Third Spoon Creative. Adam and his team have been hard at work all winter helping us with all of our projects including a new commercial that will be due out soon.
As I reflect on this past year my mind started to wander back to my own childhood and how I spent my leisure time. I was very fortunate to grow up in a LARGE family, I was the youngest of 12 children. Eight boys and four girls! We lived in a great area that backed up to a state forest with two large reservoirs that I was free to explore with my friends and siblings. We canoed, swam, fished and played hockey on these ponds. I can still smell the pine groves vividly. Every day was a new exploration in the mind of a 10 year old. Those were the best years of my life – not a care in the world and endless adventures!
Our team here at East Coast Paddle Sports absolutely loves sharing our passion for being on the water with our customers and we are challenging all of our customers to explore all that our great state has to offer with its miles upon miles of shoreline, hiking trails, rivers and ponds. Make 2016 the year you #ChooseToExplore!
