Superior SUP Strikes A Blow

Posted by:


Made from rotomoulded polyethylene the Superior SUP has a massive advantage over fibreglass stand up paddle boards. One of many key benefits of rotomoulding is its extreme resistance to damage, scratching, denting and UV.

Superior’s range of Stand Up Paddle Boards are more than ideal for the rental sector – from a small rental shop through to large water sports businesses – you can count on the Superior SUP to provide reliable, quality and durability all year round. With little to nomaintainance our SUP range has two options available with the R1 model including  a waterproof key/phone locker and cargo net storage on the bow.

As demonstrated in this video and others you will see how harsh these boards can be treated and still continue to operate day in and day out. Whether it may be hitting it with a hammer or driving a tractor over it you can have confidence in the Superior product. Buy online here

Critical facts when purchasing pontoons

Posted by:

This week I am taking on a guest blog role in the absence of our CEO John Hogan who is away on business. Being my first blog as the domestic sales representative I want to cover the common questions customers ask when it comes to buying a pontoon.

Throughout my years of working at Superior I find it interesting that most people think of a pontoon as a floating structure out the back for mooring your boat. In fact there are many key questions I ask when people inquire about a new pontoon. The most important thing is – how big is your current boat? Is there a possibility you will upgrade to bigger boat in the future? Do you want to store your boat out of the water on a dry berth pontoon or perhaps on a boat lift? These important questions play a big role and should reflect your new pontoon size.
Most councils have rules and regulations as to the maximum pontoon size allowed, which in affect, stipulates the maximum boat size that may be moored to the pontoon. A quick way to get an approximate maximum pontoon size is to take the overall water frontage of your block, for example 20m and times this amount by 65% and the measurement you are left with is the approximate maximum pontoon size allowed, in this case 13m. this is based on a block with straight boundaries and measured at the quay line for your area. For those who don’t know what I quay line is, this is the measurement from the edge of the revetment wall to the furtherest point of the pontoon, this is stipulated by local authorities for your area and commonly on the Gold Coast it is 10m or 12m.
Many people look to buy a pontoon for their boat now and don’t consider the future. It’s part of my job to not only future proof you, but maximise the potential of your property value should you ever sell. We get many calls per week from estate agents and potential buyers asking if they can fit a certain vessel on the current pontoon legally. in some cases I have even heard of this being a deal breaker where they cannot store a boat legally, so my point is buy for the future and not for right now. I will provide further advice on dry berthing options in an upcoming blog or feel free to call me at Superior on (07) 55 94 8200
Best regards
