The Summer Sun, You and Your SUP Having Fun

Summer is FINALLY here! Are you as excited as we are? It truly seemed like the longest winter ever. The rain and snow felt like it would never stop! Paddle boarders are so ready to get rid of the winter blues.

I don’t know about you, but the time I took off the water really took a toll on me. Though I spent more time with my less active family members, I also spent time slipping into bad habits. Pizza and chips may have been a go-to meal all winter long.

Yeah, not good.

Though I enjoyed the extra time with family, I’ve had enough time on the couch. It’s time to get out for some SUP!

So now that summer is coming in hot (literally), warming up the water and air, it’s time to gear up and have some stress-free summer fun.

As you know, iROCKER is all about budget-friendly fun and convenience. So here are some tips to get your summer started in the spirit of budget-friendly fun in the sun.


If you are looking for an amazing summer full of SUP, here are some tips ways to give your iROCKER some love.

  1. Always give your board a good scrub with fresh water and an environmentally friendly boat cleaner after every use. You shower after every SUP session, right? Your SUP board needs the same treatment.
  2. Next, if you haven’t in the past six months, apply a thin coat of a good quality UV protectant to your board. If you do it now, you won’t have to do it again until winter rolls in. Applying UV protectant twice a year makes a huge difference. This allows your board to withstand harsh summer rays. Don’t overdo it though, because the ingredients in the protectant can harm your board’s surface with over-use.

Go Shopping

I don’t know about you, but I never have to be asked to shop more than once. Summer is the perfect time to stock up on new gear! If you aren’t much of a shopper, iROCKER makes it easy with convenient and fast online ordering.

Now that the sun is bright and shining you are going to need some protection. A new iROCKER hat is always a stylish idea. Ours are stellar! They look great and protect your eyes and skin from harsh sun rays. This allows you to SUP all day. Bonus!

I like to keep a few extra iROCKER hats on hand for summer party favors and birthday gifts because they’re awesome and affordable. They come in four sweet colors so there’s something for everyone on your list plus you.

For hard-to-protect areas like your shoulders and torso, you may want to pick up an iROCKER summer tee. They are only $20, so why not grab one with your hat and look good from head to toe? Not only will you be killing the fashion game, but you’ll be protected from the sun’s rays too. SUP away!

What is summer without some cool drinks on the water? Stand up paddle boarding tends to work up a serious thirst, right? Keep your drinks ice cold with the iROCKER koozie. These come in four-packs, so your SUP crew will forgive you for keeping all the hats. Just slide them a koozied up cold one after your next long paddle session and you’ll be the life of the summer SUP party.
