I'm excited to announce a partnership of sorts between EOS Outdoor Supply
) and Kiteriders,llc.
Sheboygan is well known as a great place to ride in the right wind directions and with the growing popularity of this sport, safety is always a concern. General info:
EOS Outdoor (Surf, SUP, Kayak, Camping, Hiking and related accessories) is located right across from the Blue Harbor Resort in one of the shops along the waterfront. Greg Herring, who is one of the owners, has expressed an interest to help promote kiteboarding safely in the Sheboygan area. Andrew Bauman (the sheriff) and John Pena are 2 local riders who provide invaluable knowledge for local and visiting kiteboarders.
Reasons for the partnership:
Safety concerns are always issues at all locations and Greg, Andrew and John have all expressed an interest in keeping Sheboygan as safe as possible while encouraging growth in a smart and intelligent manner. We all agree that the demand will outweigh the supply of wind, so Kiteriders is offering a connection with the Sheboygan crew to provide current and up to date demo gear through EOS Outdoor to qualified riders. Training will also offered in Madison and other locations as needed to riders who really want to learn this great sport.
We're specifically looking to provide a service to the Sheboygan or visiting riders to test new gear in a safe and controlled manner. Please stop by to see Greg at EOS for further information. If there's no wind, take out an SUP, kayak or bike for a ride. If it's windy...you know the drill. Current list of Demo Gear at EOS:Kites:
