In 2012 Mistral Red Dod Division was established to create a line of SUP board and accessories. It was a brave step into the unknown and pioneering world of Stand Up Paddleboarding. The line featured all-round, SUP surf and M1 race boards all in laminated construction. Meanwhile licensing agreements were already being established for the use of the M-Dot / Mistral branding for a wide variety of garments, beach and footwear.
