Best SUP Board Photo Contest 

San Diego, CA July 13, 2012 – This summer, San Diego’s Tower Paddle Boards will host a series of three photo contests, with the winner of each contest receiving a free inflatable stand up paddle board .

July’s contest theme is “Serene Scenes”; contestants are asked to take a photo with a paddle board that illustrates the theme of serenity and post it on Tower Paddle Boards' Facebook page or through Twitter or Instagram along with the #TowerGiveaway and #SereneScenes hash tags. The winner will be announced on all Tower Paddle Boards’ social media feeds on Aug. 1. Once submitted to Tower for contest entry, Tower Paddle Boards will share rights to the photos.

Ashley Hannawacker, Director of Marketing and Business Development for Tower Paddle Boards, said, “This will engage communities in stand up paddle boarding in a fun and interactive way! We are very excited to see the assortment of photo submissions and to see the SUP community come together during the contests.”

Tower CEO Stephan Aarstol said that inflatable paddle boards offer entry into the sport for new enthusiasts because of their portability.

“We are actually quite impressed with the inflatable boards,” he said, “we recently shot a SUP video of one of the boards being thrown off of a building to see how high it could bounce and ran over one with an 8,000 lb truck. The durability of the board was quite shocking.”

August and September photo contest themes will be announced on all Tower’s social media feeds at the end of each previous month. For more information email
