RED Paddle Co Boards Now Available at Geiger'S
June 2018 - UltraMissions has partnered with Geiger's to be the exclusive retailer of RED Paddle Co inflatable standup paddle boards and gear. All three Cleveland-area Geiger’s locations have stocked the award-winning boards, paddles, and safety gear.
As the exclusive Dealer for RED Paddle Co in the region, Dr. Nagy is ‘pumped up’ about the partnership with Geiger’s. “It’s a beautiful fit, really. The world’s best inflatable paddle boards and Cleveland’s premier gear and apparel store… it just makes sense,” say Nagy. “Folks looking for performance and quality go to Geiger’s. And RED fits right into the Geiger’s lineup of high quality, top-performing gear.”
“We’re so pleased to have Lynne and her team on board at Geiger’s,” says co-owner Gordon Geiger. “Inflatable boards from RED Paddle Co are the real deal – you won’t compromise on quality or performance for the sake of convenience with this line.” RED has taken the standard inflatable technology and amped up almost every aspect to deliver a superior board. RED’s patented RSS stiffening system delivers unrivalled firmness, unique to RED. “Fans of more traditional fiberglass boards are pleasantly surprised by the stiffness and durability of the RED paddle boards,” says Nagy. “Along with the durability of these boards comes increased safety—the inflatables are much more forgiving, an important feature for novices and pros alike.”
Geiger’s is stocking several boards in the RED Paddle lineup, including the award-winning Ride. According to Nagy, “the Ride offers fantastic versatility, designed for a wide range of conditions and all levels of skill.” Shorter models are better suited to surf conditions, while longer, wider models are tailored to the bigger paddler or families who will paddle together on one board. The Sport line offers a step up in performance. “Their profiled noses enable you to paddle further and longer.” Boards for racing, wind-surfing, and yoga are offered as well. “Last but certainly not least, the 17’ Ride is ideal for groups of all kinds – and the dog too! At 60” wide, these boards accommodate up to 1,000 pounds and TONS of fun with your crew!” says Nagy.

UltraMissions is Geiger’s exclusive, preferred partner for paddle board instructor services as well. Dr. Nagy is ASI-certified; she’s not just passionate about the sport, she’s also passionate about on-the-water safety. “There’s lots of opportunities to rent or buy boards out there. I want to see people choose high-quality boards, and be properly equipped with the knowledge and skill necessary for a fun and safe experience.” UltraMissions offers individual and small group lessons by appointment.
