SUP Away the Winter Blues

paddle boarding

Winter is known for forcing SUP-ers indoors and causing us to fall out of our healthy habits. This explains why as winter starts to approach, SUP enthusiasts start to panic. Don’t stress! Winter doesn’t have to mean the end of SUP season.

Winter often means extra time indoors with less active family and friends (good), and more time on the couch eating and binging on movies (bad).

Most SUP enthusiasts tend to get a little bit stir crazy because let’s face it, the couch is not where we want to be.

So now that the warm weather and water are cooling down, it’s time to SUP a little smarter and gear up for some stress-free winter SUP fun!

We recently let you in on some budget-friendly ways to get the most out of your iROCKER board and gear. Just as importantly, you want to be safe and take steps to help your iROCKER board last as long as possible.The longer your board lasts, the more you can get out of it in every season.


We’ve highlighted some stellar tips and tricks you can use today to ensure you get an awesome winter of SUP that doesn’t involve a hot tub (or your couch).

  1. Give your board a good scrub with water and an environmentally friendly boat cleaner after every single use. If you don’t do this already, now is the perfect time to start.
  2. If you haven’t in the past six months, it’s time to give your iROCKER a good coat of UV protectant. Reapply in a few months when summer comes around. Applying a UV protectant twice a year helps your board’s surface stand up summer rays and salt but remember, only do this twice a year so the ingredients won’t harm your board’s surface.

Go Shopping

Seriously, winter is a killer time to go online shopping! Treat yourself, friends and family to some new iROCKER gear.  Think hats, tees and packs. (I wasn’t joking when I said we’ve got you covered.)

The new iROCKER hats are the solution to fighting any creeping winter blues. They’re great all year long, of course, so stock up now for winter warmth and summer sun protection.

And since they look fabulous, why not use them as a stellar gift?

While we’re on the theme of covering up, you also might want to grab an iROCKER tee to go with your sweet new hat. Why not look good and stay warm from head to toe?

Now that you and your board are ready for the water, you can start thinking about your belly. Reward yourself with a cold drink wrapped in a cool iRocker koozie! They come in four-packs, so you can treat yourself and use the extras for gifts.
