Mistral proudly presents the new paddlesystem with the worldwide first bow shaft
By: Mistral Red Dot Division   
The SUP scene is not a particular innovative one. This can be explained by the fact that all great SUP brands have emerged from the windsurfing scene. Taking this into consideration, it should therefore not come as a surprise that most SUP R&D derives from a windsurfing school of thought, using windsurfing shapers and know-how. The end result is a market place offering identical paddles and boards which only differ in nuances. Mistral goes one step further.
Ernstfried Prade, head of development and one of the three founders of Mistral: "We obviously had to acknowledge the fact that the sport of SUP encompasses two different scenes. On the one side the surf scene and on the other side the - until now woefully neglected - paddle canoe racing scene. Compared to the canoe racing scene, the SUP scene is still in its infant stages. Canoe racing has already established itself over the last 100 years and seen many innovations during this time. We now consistently want to merge the best of both worlds in our SUP products!”

By: Kevin Burke   

Brown will coordinate and manage some of the best in sports medicine to treat more than 500 professional surfers and skaters at this year's event in Huntington Beach, July 28-August 5


Huntington Beach, CA (July 19, 2012) - Dr. Tim Brown and the team behind IntelliSkin will return to the sand of Huntington Beach, Calif. this summer, leading an extensive medical team at theNIKE U.S. Open of Surfing, from July 28-August 5.


With his office temporarily relocated to the beach, Dr. Brown, who serves as Co-Medical Director for the Association of Surfing Professionals (ASP), will oversee the IntelliSkin Interdisciplinary Sports Medicine Team as they treat and care for hundreds of professional athletes competing at the nine-day event. The IntelliSkin Medical Team will consist of chiropractors, orthopedic surgeons, physical therapists, massage therapists, strength and conditioning coaches and acupuncturists, addressing any number of athlete requests, from injuries to conditioning exercises.


"This is quite possibly the largest collection of athletes to be cared for by one Interdisciplinary Sports Med team, and when you're preparing a staff who will be treating elite athletes, you have no choice but to use the A-Team," said Dr. Brown, who has been assembling interdisciplinary sports medicine teams since 1985, when he was the first official Medical Director for the Association of Volleyball Professionals (AVP). "It's not uncommon for an injured athlete to have three or more specialists collaborating and working simultaneously with them to diagnose, treat, educate them on best methods to expedite recovery, and get back to competition."
