My name is Bruce. I live in Laguna Beach, CA. I have developed a product to be used in a number of water sports. I have formed a company and will be going into production of a prototype in the very near future.
I am the creator of the product, and am working alongside my business partners to assist in accessing the markets.
I am seeking to find out information such as –
1) How many stand up paddlers are there in the USA and globally? 2) What is the growth rate of this sport per year? 3) How many boards are manufactured per year? 4) Age range of beginning SUP’s for women and men? 5) Etc. etc.
Would you be able to point me in the right direction as to how I can find out this information?

Unfortunately, the infancy of our sport equates to a lack of statistics/history. I would check with OIA (Outdoor Reatailer Association) & ACA (American Canoe Association) ... I believe they both have some statistics on SUP.
I'm a fellow Lagunan, too! See you on our beautiful waters (although I spend more time training in the Newport & DP harbors). Best of luck with your business!
