Two of the best join the team
Lavacore is pleased to announce that respected SUPboarders, Ollie Shilston and Damian Warner are both using the Lavacore range of products and as Ollie says “I wouldn’t paddle without it!”
Damian Warner; “We have been using lots of different Lavacore kit from trousers, long johns through to long/short/sleeveless tops and even the technical jackets and paddle caps etc… The thing that I really like about them is the versatility. I was wearing just a single layer of Lavacore paddling through the winter! In the summer you can wear a top with board shorts or thermal shorts underneath depending on the conditions.
I am most impressed with the technical design, flexibility and comfort. For SUP it’s a pretty unique product – Thermal warmth… windproof… and keeps the rain out. But if you do fall in the thermal layer traps a small amount of water in and keeps you warm. Wetsuit products are just too hot and restrictive and in comparison less breathable, so from that perspective Lavacore is much better and saves loads of energy.
You see most people paddling in sports lycra, compression wear or wetsuit products to stay warm… until they fall in! Then the lycra is useless, or they overheat and can’t move in a wetsuit. Doesn’t matter if you fall in with Lavacore on, because you will be warm and comfortable!”
Ollie Shilston; “It’s a fantastic product that I’m very thankful to be using. Training this winter for the World Championships would have been even tougher without this quality kit. It’s very comfortable, flexible and warm and I wouldn’t paddle without it.”
