It can be tough to learn to surf, but Airstream can support anything that makes it easier for people to get out and have fun in the outdoors. Stand-up paddle surfing (SUP) is one of those things. Initially developed as a technique for instructors to position themselves for photos, SUP has developed into its own sport, focusing on racing rather than riding the large waves of traditional surfing.
We love it when other companies use and rely on our products. It’s particularly great when the company is one that tries to integrate the Airstream trailer and our philosophy into what they do. Veuve Clicquot is one of those companies.
When you’re on the road, there are certain things you have to have. You need comfort. You need economy. You need style. You need safety. But getting all of that in one, self-contained package isn’t easy. Usually something must be sacrificed – but not with Airstream and Mercedes-Benz’s Interstate touring coach.
Along with our trailers, there are tons of other things that can make your time on the road great. One is a pink flamingo – yes, the fun, eye catching lawn ornament, which since its creation in 1957 has become one of the most ubiquitous yard decorations across America. Pink flamingos have also become an important part of Airstream culture, as many Airstreamers have flamingos that travel the country with them, to be displayed at every stop. It’s a way to call out to other Airstreamers and enhance our community.
Airstream since its creation, has always had a focus on community. After all, how many other travel trailer companies can boast something as unique and community-driven as the pink flamingo? Whether you’re new to the experience or a seasoned veteran, travelling in your Airstream is just more fun with others. That’s where the Wally Byam Caravan Club International (WBCCI) comes in.
