Would you believe, people still wonder what we do?! We have been in business since 2002, working with brands such as Laser, Topper, North Sails, Selden, Marlow, Queensport, Black Diamond Tiller, etc. In 2015, we also set up a sister company - Paddlefast to cater for those wind-free days to satisfy your need to be on the water, whatever the wind conditions!
