GBSUP Launch RNLI Supporting Tech Tees

Following the creation of our partnership with the RNLI at the back end of 2020 we have been thinking throughout 2021 of ways to support the RNLI and raise some very important funding that they need to continue to save lives and educate the UK on water safety.

We have all seen a huge upsurge in people taking up Stand Up Paddle boarding (SUP) over the last couple of years. This explosion has not just been limited to SUP use; other water sports have seen a similar type of growth. The result of this has been the RNLI are now attending more and more shouts with people getting into difficulty and amongst those are Stand Up Paddle boarders.

Hand drawn RNLI Lifeboat

Following the success of Lauren Newman-Warren one of the GBSUP team who was raising money by doing her own personal triathlon challenge down in Ramsgate we focused on an awesome way of raising money and giving you something that shows our awesome partnership.

We have had a specially hand draw design of an RNLI Lifeboat produced, which we have used to create a Technical Training T-Shirt that you can all use when out paddling or really any other sporting activity.

Our tech tee is a unisex relaxed fit with UPF30+ rated protection, quick-drying, moisture-wicking, and 2-way stretch to cope with whatever you through at it.

£10 from every sale will be donated to the RNLI
