Your new board

One of the things we take very seriously at Soposup is making sure you are getting your money's worth when you buy a board from us. I place orders based on what I would want to see in a shop if I was shopping for a board. Price is often the number one consideration when buying a SUP. These things aren't exactly cheap. Sometimes a board is so good that price becomes a secondary factor. For example, if you are in the market for a seriously fast, long distance ocean racer, then you need to consider the SICs in carbon, because they are just that much better than anything else.

3 years and Counting!

Well, its been 3 whole years since we first opened our doors. What a great ride its been so far! When I first began hatching the plan for Soposup, people said I was crazy to open a dedicated shop. Stand Up Paddleboarding was still a very new sport here in Maine. It wasn't obvious that it was going to be huge...unless you had already tried it.

Holiday SALE

We have over 35 new and used Standup Paddleboards in stock at anywhere from 10 to 35% off MSRP until December 21st. All our summer wetsuits are 25-35% off. Get 10% off any paddle when you buy a board. Get a jump on the holiday shopping and score some big deals.

Soposup expands its reach northwards

We are now able to give lessons and rent boards in the Bath/Brunswick area. Tyler Inman, who has spent the past few years in Okinawa teaching SUP, is now our points-north Ambassador. If you are looking to rent boards or take a lesson from a seasoned professional but don't want to drive down to the Portland area, give him a call @ 360-970-1802 and he will take good care of you.

Saturday Afternoon Race Series

I am very excited to announce the start of our weekly Race around Cushings Island in Casco Bay. The idea is to create a regularly held competitive event for local paddlers to improve their skills and pit themselves against other local talent, while maintaining a casual, friendly, no-pressure atmosphere.

Free Events this summer @ SOPOSUP

This summer we are focusing our efforts on getting as many people on the water as we can. Lessons and rentals are great ways for people to start this journey, but lets face it; FREE lessons and tours are almost impossible to resist!

We will meet up at 9:45 am, and launch by 10am. The cruise will follow the S. Portland waterfront to the Casco Bay Bridge, and then we will paddle back along the Portland waterfront, maybe stopping for some egg-nog before we cross back to Bug Light.

Now your local Surf and Skate shop

When I first opened the store just over a year ago, I didn't want to carry products that I couldn't talk about as an "expert", and so Soposup was born as a dedicated Sup shop. A part of me also felt SUP deserved its own place. But as time has passed, I've realized that notion is more about me than about the sport. And lets face it, Portland needs a decent surf shop. We now have over 20 surfboards in stock, shaped by East Coast shapers who know and surf the same waves you do.
