Boardsportsource: German Market

“SUP rental is growing even though we aren’t located on a lake. We work together with a SUP school where customers can test simple boards. We notice that they still tend to buy the high quality equipment.”

German Market Intel September 2017
It was almost a textbook summer in Germany this year. The Germans witnessed what they usually search for when holidaying: sunshine, blue skies, high temperatures and mild summer nights. But unfortunately due to extreme weather conditions – heavy rainfall, thunderstorms and extreme high temperatures – it was really hard for retailers.
