2019 Loco Rider Ambassador & SUP School Scheme
After another fantastic season of SUP sales and product development we’re now casting our minds forward to 2019. For those who keep up with our facebook page or instagram you’ll have already seen that we’ve made some fantastic steps forward with our new hard race board, the Motion as well as upping our game across iSUPs with the introduction of the new 17′ Motion Air Tandem and 10’5” Amigo Air alongside producing some of the most exciting, performance-driven and beautifully finished all-round paddleboards and wave SUPs with the option to add windsurfing sails and hydrofoils or both. Needless to say it’s a great time to get involved with our 2019 Loco Rider Ambassador & SUP School Scheme.
No one could have predicted the heatwave we’ve been enjoying over the last few months and we’ve had to begrudgingly knock back numerous school enquiries as we just didn’t have enough stock to fulfil multiple board orders and still keep our core direct customer base happy. We’re pleased to announce that things will be changing for 2019 but we’re still encouraging schools and hire centres to get in touch before the 15th of October with their plans for the coming season. We’ll also price match on any volume order across like for like kit and can now provide flags and race buoys for anyone interested.
In terms of riders and ambassadors we’ve seen some great content from many of our existing team over this season but as with life, people get busy with work, family life or only have time for so much paddling so it is with regret we say goodbye to a few of ‘the old guard’ but we are confident we can find similarly motivated individuals who are supportive of what we’re trying to do with the brand and who’s personalities embody the loco spirit.
For those unfamiliar with rider and ambassador programmes essentially you receive a generous discount on kit, which is tiered depending what you can bring to the party in terms of content, stoke or competition results. At this stage we’re VERY interested in the following for our 2019 Loco Rider Ambassador & SUP School Scheme:
- 14′ hard board racers both here in the UK and in Europe – all levels considered
- Outdoorsy couples who live the van life dream, travel extensively and can produce decent photographic or video content
- Explorers who want to take their inflatable SUPs everywhere and document their trips.
- Yoga or pilates instructors who are interested in extending their activities to cover SUP or individuals who love doing yoga or pilates outdoors and have a solid instagram following.
- SUP instructors
- SUP schools & hire centres both here and abroad for both inflatables and hard boards.
- Wave SUP riders and ambassadors – adults and kids.
- Hydrofoil ambassadors for SUP, surfing and kite surfing.
- Paddle riders and ambassadors
- Active families who love taking photos of them having fun
So what’s in it for you? Well for those with aligned business interests or those looking to increase exposure for their paddle boarding adventures we’re well placed to cross promote you via our social media channels and have access to the leading magazines in terms of both articles and cover shots. We will also provide you with some Loco merchandise free of charge and support our best performing athletes with race or surf competition entry fees. All team member will have the opportunity to wax lyrical on the Loco blog offering up their unique take on the sport with opportunity to cross promote where appropriate.
We already have the first of the 2019 hard boards being finished in our factory with the iSUPs following shortly after so successful applicants will have their kit nice and early to get out there competing or spreading the Loco love before anyone else.
