As a major force in the fast-growing sport of surf ski paddling, Icon is embarking on the next exciting adventure in its evolution with its sights firmly set on opening up the sport.
This first stage will be to offer an easy-to-access package of equipment, adventures, training, races, information and much more.
In 2015/16, there are many exciting projects planned, not least the forthcoming launch of second generation Icon ‘Genesis’ ocean ski later this year, 2015, for entry level to advanced paddlers.
Another new innovation is an entry level ILS Spec Ski to help the less confident paddlers hone their skills before stepping up to the world class medal winning ski.
Alongside the new range of equipment, this year will see the further development of the now-already popular Icon padding clothing range of base layers, paddle shorts and tights. Icon designed paddling accessories will also be launched to complement the Icon Sprint Pro spray deck to make those winter sessions more enjoyable.
Adventures and Racing feature prominently in the year ahead with the launch of the Icon Atlantic and Icon Discovery paddling trips. Who wouldn’t want to head out to sea on a 40 foot boat with a group of friends and then share a downwind paddle experience?!
On the Racing calendar and in addition to the 6th Icon Classic in 2015, there are two new races planned for 2016 – the Icon Metro and Icon Jurassic Summer Challenges.
Other new activities in the Icon offering are training & coaching and ‘Ress’experiences’ – on-water, practical tuition for one-to-one or small groups, tailored to suit your needs with Icon founder, Mark Ressel!
It’s going to be a very exciting and busy year ahead – we hope you’ll join us and share in the start of a new future adventure for Icon!
