SUPrSTRAP is a paddleboard strap that provides surface water sports lovers an easier, less awkward way of carrying their paddleboard/surfboard down to the water. Come meet Diane Hemmert, the designer, and try the strap for yourself on August 18, 2018, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Paddlefit at Sparks Marina.
Donations from sales of the strap this day will go to the Boy & Girls Club of Truckee Meadows.
Can’t make it on the 18 of August? SuperSTRAP will also be present at the first paddleboard race in Tahoe, at the Tahoe-Nalu Races at Adrift Kings Beach, CA. on August 11, 2018 from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m.
Inventor Hemmert a lover of watersports, especially Stand Up paddleboarding and surfing. After years of struggling to carry her boards to and from the water, she knew there had to be a better way to enjoy her favorite sports.
“I wanted the strap to be small, easy to use with the ability to be hands-free and safely worn around my ankle to prevent theft and injury,” said Hemmert. “I created the SUPrSTRAP with women in mind to be able to carry their heavy boards with less pain and awkwardness.”
SUPrSTRAP is a hands-free carrying device for your stand-up paddleboard, surfboard, and even the paddle. It is easy to use with extra length to adjust to most heights. Whether someone likes to paddleboard or surf, the strap is adjustable to most consumer boards, and with the silicone coated hook, it will not cause any damage to the surface.
“The most excitement from the SUPrSTRAP comes from carrying both ‘paddle & board’ then converting the SUPrSTRAP (bag and all) into an anklet which provides safety, theft protection, and fun location hopping. I kinda want to stay away from hands free since the other straps allow for that too,” said Hemmert.
The SUPrSTRAP is already carried in various locations: at Adrift Tahoe in Kings Beach and Paddle Fit at the Marina in Sparks, as well as online.
“If you want to know one person to ask about getting your paddleboard to and from the water, I’d love to help!” Hemmert said.
