February 28, 2017

Greenville, S.C. — Feb 28, 2017 – Perception, a leader in recreational, touring and fishing kayaks and SUPs for 40 years, today released the Escapade 10’6” to specialty retailers nationwide. The super-stable SUP is durable enough to last year after year of family vacations and weekend adventures.

“The Escapade offers durable performance at an approachable price,” said Hastings Blumer, product director for Perception SUP. “It’s the perfect one-size-fits-all board that excels in flat water, will stand the test of time and suits beginning and intermediate paddlers.”

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 and integrated ergonomic carry handle make it a breeze to carry and transport, minimizing the likelihood of being dragged. Two deck tie downs with bungees allow you to easily stash your PFD and gear with quick accessibility. The Flexi dolphin fin lessens the likelihood of fin damage and tool-less fin hardware makes installation and removal of the fin easier than ever.

The Escapade 10‘6” is $699 USD and is available at specialty retailers nationwide.
