About

Hi. Welcome to SILVER SUP, Windsurf, Kite and Surf shop, thanks for stopping by.

SILVER is a online boutique lifestyle surf sports retailer offering Naish, Quiksilver, Roxy, FCS & Reef products and we pride ourselves on giving the best possible professional advice and service for the products we sell. SILVER is the brand new name and look to what was K172.com - a surf shop which successfully grew and evolved over time but needed a make over and a new breath of life to take it to the next level.

SILVER is owned and run by Jan Sleigh & Frederic Salvanet.

Jan is a windsurfer, stand up paddle boarder, surfer and now kitesurfer who has been following his dreams in the water for 30 years. He is probably more passionate now about riding waves or jumping them than he has ever been. He's pushed himself in windsurfing and paddle boarding competing at both national and international level, and he's organised his life around his surf sports, now residing in Cornwall to take advantage of the UK's best waves and prevailing winds. He is a Naish team rider and brand ambassador and he set up and operated K172.com for the best part of 8 years.

Fred has always had a connection with the sea from early family holidays in Biarritz to living at Pacific Beach San Diego and has been surfing on and off for the past 30 years. Starting out as a windsurfer he has been riding waves in cold and warm water from Brandon Bay to Cabo Verde, but after losing his rig on the reef in Barbados (mostly due to his own fault) and paddling back a fair distance to the beach, he decided to return back to the basics and fully focus on his surfing. Now he has picked up a paddle and taken up SUP and has also recently returned to windsurfing and is learning to kitesurf to. He is happiest in a pair of board shorts on an isolated Maldivian break or in full neoprene from head to toe in the depths of winter at his local North devon break..

We are both super passionate about all of the surf sports we do. We specialise in Naish stand up paddle boarding, windsurfing & kitesurfing equipment because we think that by focusing on one brand that we believe in and ride all the time means we can give the best advice about that equipment and therefore help you find the right Naish equipment for you. If we can pass on our specialist knowledge then we can help you make the right decision about what to buy and maximise your SUP, windsurfing, kitesurfing or surfing enjoyment.

And our passion goes deeper than our knowledge of equipment. We fully immerse ourselves in all of the products we stock. We wear Quiksilver wetsuits and Quiksilver and Reef clothes and use FCS fins on our surfboards - we are enthusiastic about the brands we stock and love what we do.

Thanks for taking the time to look around the shop if you ave any questions please email us and we promise to get back to you.

Cheers,

Jan & Fred
