About the Turbulent Waters of the Watersports Industry and Your Feedback

The watersports industry is facing some tough challenges in recent times, but at RSPro, we are determined to provide our customers with the best products and services possible. In this blog post, we will be discussing the current issues the industry is facing, how we at RSPro are working to overcome them and why we need your feedback.

One of the biggest challenges facing the industry is product sourcing. With many companies experiencing difficulties obtaining raw materials, it has become increasingly difficult to produce high-quality products at an affordable price. However, at RSPro, we are fortunate to have the capability to produce everything in-house, which has allowed us to minimize any issues with sourcing. We only experienced some delays with some raw materials and only the Paddle Edge Saver was discontinued for some weeks due to the lack of materials to produce it. 


In addition to sourcing difficulties, costs have been skyrocketing for many of our competitors, leading to price increases of 20-40%. At RSPro, we have limited our own price increases to date, but we must admit that we will likely have to raise prices in the middle-end of 2023.

Despite this, we are constantly striving to improve our products and services to better meet your needs, ensuring that you get the best value for your money.

Another challenge facing the industry is the closing of shops and distributors. However, we believe that this is a cyclical process and new ones will come in the future.

As a valued customer, we want to hear your thoughts and feedback on what you would like to see from us in the future.

In conclusion, the watersports industry is facing some tough challenges, but at RSPro, we are determined to navigate these turbulent waters and provide our customers with the best products and services possible.
