Great Bear SUP Stand Up Paddle Board 12'6"
In Stock Product Number: 41846
Boardworks is proud to introduce the Great Bear. In collaboration with Canadian team ambassador, Norm Hann, this SUP is designed to be the ultimate tour and expedition board. Evolved from the Raven platform, the Great Bear is overall thinner throughout the hull and wider in the tail for extra stability . The nose shape and rocker have been refined for downwind paddling and cutting through heavy chop. We added more gear tie downs in the back and filled in the cock pit for watershed.
Inspired by Norm's conservation efforts, Boardworks has pledged $20 of the sale of each Great Bear board to be donated to StandUp4GreatBear, a non-profit organization that promotes awareness and encourages the protection of Great Bear Rainforest through "expeditions, partnerships and action." THE ISSUE: Enbridge Inc, a Calgary-based oil and gas company has proposed the construction of a 1,170 km pipeline running from Alberta's tar sands to Kitimat on British Columbia's west coast. From here, crude oil would be loaded into super tankers bound for Asia. Before reaching the open ocean, these tankers would first need to pass through some of the most dangerous navigable waters in the world,―the narrow inlets of the Great Bear Rainforest. If this happens, a devastating oil spill is inevitable that would wipe out one of the most pristine marine environments on the planet.
Our hope is not only to help protect the Great Bear Rainforest but to inspire people all over the world to take action to protect the waters that they paddle and love.
