How Algarve SUP started

Nick Robinson started the company back in 2014 after he became disillusioned with his day job in the IT business and set out to create an outdoor company. He wanted to get back to the natural pursuits of his youth: surfing, hiking, river rafting, wind surfing. The new sport of paddleboarding encompassed all of that and more. In May 2018 he sold the business to John and Heike from Zen Sup.
