San Marcos, Ca, August 30, 2016 – Surf Ventures announced earlier this week that The University of Arizona (U of A) has selected its Fisher Boards brand of inflatable paddleboards, the BlowfishTM, for the campus recreation center.
Celebrated as a school where sports like basketball and football thrive, The University of Arizona boasts one of the most outstanding student athletic and recreational centers in the country. Ranked 19th out of the top 35 most luxurious student recreation centers, The U of A offers a wide range of indoor and outdoor activities for their students.
The selection of Fisher Boards by the university comes with no surprise. Designed with the help of the U.S. Navy SEALs, the Blowfish looks, feels, and performs much like the Fisher hardboards and provides a superior ride compared to other inflatables on the market. The precision control, superior stability, and effortless glide of the Blowfish will turn any day on the water into an enjoyable one, making it a perfect fit for U of A.
“With the addition of Fisher Stand-Up Paddleboards, The University of Arizona Campus Recreation Department has been able to progress its Fitness programming by offering SUP Yoga classes to not only challenge users in a new way but also offer a top-notch workout! The light-weight and easy to maneuver boards have made this SUP Yoga class available to all fitness level participants”. -Dana Santoro Assistant Director Fitness University of Arizona
“University of Arizona Outdoor Recreation’s Paddle Programs extend throughout the Southwest, in some of the most inhospitable environments. We chose Fisher Boards for their unblemished track record and ability to perform in the ever changing conditions we operate in on a daily basis”. –Andrew Huff Assistant Director of Outdoor Recreation
“Bear Down, Arizona! We are extremely excited to have partnered with The University of Arizona”, said Geoff Fisher, Founder and CEO of Surf Ventures. “Our boards were a perfect fit for U of A when it came to enhancing their recreational programs”!
