REI in the News: Wall Street Journal Article on Stand-up Paddle Boards

The Wall Street Journal’s Kevin Helliker interviewed Nathan Grothe, product manager for REI, about this summer’s hottest trend: stand-up paddle boards (SUP). The full article is available at: Surf's Up: The Rise of Stand-up Paddle Boards.

A once fairly unknown sport has now caught on across the country. REI began selling stand-up paddle boards in six stores and on in 2009, moving to 20 stores this year. We expect that number to grow in the coming year, in addition to the amount of paddling events.
