I have to admit that I was a bit intrigued by this iSUP design. Bummer that they failed.

'Kickscammed' ..I guess!   Rivers,  Did you read the thick stream of B.S. and oversell.   Frankly, their spiel reads like a Bernnie Madoff prospectus.  They used nearly every pernicious sell trick in the Little Book of Scams.   

If 'MADE IN SWITZERLAND' and FREE international shipping didn't seal-the-deal, how could you not fall for: "We believe a successful company has a duty to help others. That is why, for every board we sell we provide a child in the developing world with clean water for LIFE." (How'z that work?! ..a plane ticket to Switzerland?) ..Oh well, back to mud puddles for them.

If not taking up cards with Bernie, then their BMW M3s should be impounded and be forced by the ICC to repay the rubes. ..or Kickstarter should make the hustlers who pitch deals there buy bonds/insurance to cover the walkaways.

Really? 

"When you lead from the front and push the boundaries you are always walking a fine line. Sadly today we have teetered onto the wrong side of that line and have closed our doors." 

Lead from the front? 
What a bunch of scam artists. 
Sorry for those that backed this pile of crap.

Like every wordsmithed resume I've ever read, when you feel like you're being oversold, prepare to be underwhelmed.
