Big things to come from N2 in the coming year with current product improvements, and additions to our product lineup. We are truly grateful to all who have helped our great brand become what it is today, may God bless.
Good start to the Florida waves season as Hurricane Joaquin brought some fun juice to South Florida and the rest of the east coast of Florida this past week.
Made for some fun conditions along our area beaches but it also brought heavy rains and flooding to other parts of the east coast. We send our thoughts and prayers to those areas hit. Stay safe out there and remember to always wear a leash when surfing sizable waves.
North 2 team rider and sales rep for the South Florida Region did very well today at the Triple Crown of the Upper Keys SUP race!
Jen Aquia placed 3rd overall in the female division of the recreation race, and 1st for female (non-displacement board) using a N2 11' Cardiff, and N2 carbon fiber paddle.
Jen was in the front of the pack the entire race, which is super impressive considering most in her class were on full displacement race style SUPs. Way to go Jen! We are excited to have Jen apart of our team.
Also if you are down in the keys make sure you check out Jen's SUP rental/night SUP tour/lessons business Aquaholic Adventures
Some more action at Surf Expo Orlando. Big thanks to Will Vacha, Conrad Charles, Evan Orellana, Andrew Hosmer, Steve Allsion, and the rest of our team who made this happen. What a great event and a great industry to be a part of!

Congrats to North 2 team rider and brand ambassador Chelsey Loder for taking 1st place (Recreation Woman's 18-45) at the Sunshine SUP Series Race #2 in Pompano Beach today. We are lucky to have her on our team. Very high temps with almost no wind made it tough for all the racers who competed. It is definitely the dog days of summer here in South Florida. Come say hi to Chelsey and the rest of the N2 crew at this upcoming Surf Expo, Orlando (Sept 9-12, Booth #1189).
Great job today at the Sunshine SUP Series Race #1 to North 2 team rider and brand ambassador Chelsey Loder taking 1st place (women's 18-45, 3 mile recreational). Chelsey kicked some serious butt on a N2 10' Sessions, using a N2 carbon/fiberglass paddle. We are very excited to have Chelsey be apart of the North 2 team. She is a seasoned stand up paddler and traditional surfer, who also owns a very successful stand up paddleboard and watersports business (What's SUP) in Deerfield Beach, FL. Way to go Chelsey!
We had a great turn out at our impromptu beach demo day. It was a blazing sunny day and super fun at North 2 Delray Beach. We had some first-timers who had a blast and are already hooked on stand up paddling after stopping by to demo one of the North 2 Boards. Thanks to all who made it out, and we will be doing another one real soon! If you'd like to know the next time we will be doing a demo day please email us your contact info to firstname.lastname@example.org

Great job to N2 brand ambassador Evan Orellana on his 3rd placement finish at the Summer Surf Off Pro/Am up in Jensen Beach, FL yesterday. Very challenging conditions and competition way to go! Thanks to @FLpaddleboards for the great action shot of Evan pulling a 360.
This past weekend, May 2nd 2015, the annual Key West Paddle Classic had another great showing of over 300 stand up paddlers and watercraft paddlers from all around the country. North 2 was in attendance. Ryan Pena, Will Vacha, and Conrad Charles all did well in the "SUP Surf" class. Ryan paddled a Sessions 10 and took 1st place in his age group as well as a podium appearance with 4th overall at 2:51, Will was on a 9.4 Gulfstream and took 2nd in age group on the smallest board in the entire event!, as well as Conrad with a strong finish riding the Cardiff 10. The 12 mile race around the entire island was one heck of a grueling race that took on average 3 hours of hard endless paddling to complete. All team North 2 riders were on sub 12' boards, smallest of the entire race, and is a feat in and of itself! Way to go team North 2! see you next year Key West, and special thanks to Lazy Dog Paddle boards of Key West for organizing such an amazing event.
