New SUPlove boards and SUPlove's First Sale!

They are finally here!  SUPlove has gotten their first set of boards to the US and we were lucky enough to try them out and help get their first sale!  More exciting things to come from SUPlove!  I tried the 8'10" x 28.5" Challenger model and I found it to be very stable, agile, and super fun to surf.  The 9'4" Mach1 is it's big brother and would be an ideal SUP surf board for someone between 140-180 lbs, while the 8'5" Challenger seems to be an ideal board for someone under 160lbs.  At 145lbs, I find the Challenger to be an ideal board.
