Hope everyone had a wonderful ‘Merica day! My day got off to a super slow start, but I woke up knowing I had to pull it together to wear my 4th of July bathing suit, drink some American beer, and most importantly… Test out Dickie Boards!!!
Ever since I moved to Austin in February, I’ve heard Dickie (pictured above) talking about his new paddle board company. I had a mini idea what they’d be like, but didn’t know entirely what to expect.
At first glance, I was already excited! Aesthetically, they were nicer than any board I had ever seen. Bamboo boards and paddles with color coordinated grips and rims? Dickie Boards are sharp! But the best part was the ride. They are shorter and thinner than the boards I’m used to, which meant you had a ton more control of the board. I loved using my core and slight bends in my knees to weave through boat traffic rather than back paddling like an Austin Powers champ. I can’t wait to ride these boards all summer!
Congrats and thank you, Dickie!!!
