We have thousands of devoted fans, and hundreds of those people are going on epic adventures with their Isle standup paddle boards. Ideally we wish we could promote everyone’s cool trips and this is the first step in that direction.
Our first customer spotlight is Eric Pappas who paddles religiously and looks like he would be friends with Bear Grylles or something. Eric and his business partners, Jason and Paige Smiley started Oklahoma’s first mobile standup paddle board rentals and tours that they called Flat Tide Surf. In addition, Eric’s wife and adventure sidekick Christy paddles with Eric a lot so we decided to share some pictures from their last adventure. Below is also a Q&A we had with the two of them! ENJOY.
