As with any new brand it takes time to grow and gather respect in the industry, with a healthy team of riders underneath them. Now don't get me wrong... Smik definitely aren’t a 'new' brand, but when it comes to performance shaped composite SUP's it takes a lot longer to shake that newer brand label!
We’ve been keeping a close eye on Smik and their boards over the past few years. And next month their smaller Hipster Twin is going to be included in the SUPboarder Pro – ‘Performance Shape’ Test… so look out for that.
Their range of boards has grown over the years and more importantly so has the Smik team. A good quality team across all levels and styles is important to all brands to ensure the development will always be taken to the next level. We asked Scotty to share with us some words about his latest video and his team of growing riders/ambassadors.
