This coming weekend from the 5th – 7th Oct, sees the staging of Europe’s leading Kayak, Canoe and SUP show held in Nürnberg, Germany, the famous “Paddle Expo”. Here you will see many of the leading brands from each of these paddle sport disciplines. Ironically in the early days, SUP brands were often seen at Surf Expos. Over time, this alignment has lost traction so as many brands now steer clear of an association with surfing, preferring to foster an ever stronger alignment with paddle sports. This can be called a ‘Self Governing Process’ where time itself unfolds the truth of the matter.

Mistral are very fortunate to be represented at this years Paddle Expo as in past years, by Sport-Vibrations Germany, where you can find them on stand S77. Mistral’s ever expanding range of products now includes windsurfing, stand up paddle boarding and kayaking together with our iconic apparel and accessory range. See our range of products at the Paddle Expo and say hello to Ulla and Wolfgang, two of Mistral’s longest serving supporters and representatives of the Mistral brand.
