Perception Introduces Escapade 10’6” SUP

Perception debuts super durable, budget-friendly SUP for all-around use

Greenville, S.C. (July 28, 2016) – Perception, a leader in recreational and touring kayaks for 40 years, today unveiled the Escapade 10’6”: a super stable SUP that’s durable enough to last year after year of family vacations and weekend adventures.

“The Escapade offers durable performance at a budget-friendly price,” said Evan Lyendecker, marketing director for Perception. “It’s the perfect SUP for beginner to intermediate paddlers looking for a one-size-fits-all board that excels in flat water.”

The Escapade’s Bombshell construction with Kevlar-reinforced rails delivers exceptional durability and impact resistance. The ¾-length dark grey diamond groove deck pad hides dirt and repeated wear and tear while the stylish blue deck decreases the likelihood of damage resulting from heat absorption due to sun exposure.

The board’s reduced weight makes it a breeze to carry and minimizes the likelihood of being dragged. Two deck tie downs with bungees allow you to easily stash gear within reach while the integrated ergonomic carry handle makes it easy to transport. The Flexi dolphin fin lessens the likelihood of damaged fins and fin boxes and tool-less fin hardware makes fin installation and removal easier than ever.

The Escapade 10‘6” is $699 USD and launches to retailers in January 2017.
