Christine Coughlan started Sculling Gear when she couldn’t find good products all in one shop.

01:30 Background in rowing and coxing
03:40 ScullingGear.com is 5 years old.
I went to Craftsbury and tried a flyweight boat and bought it. Then I started shopping for rowing “toys” like a mirror, slings and a boat cover.
06:10 Rowing Gloves are #1 Best Seller. There’s a shift in attitudes about gloves. Silicone on the palm, elasticated fingers and they prevent ripping off blisters. Use at camp or racing.
09:00 #2 best seller is the Take a look mirror – it is popular as it comes with a case and a carry carabiner. Use in races for quick adjustments to your steering.
#3 best seller is the Skwoosh Seat Cushion. It has circles of gel for your sit bones. The back is grippy for boat seats and ergs.
12:20 What’s new in Sculling Gear’s store? Health coaching – a foundation in nutrition, mindset change, psychology. For masters rowers.
14:45 Diet course for rowers will come soon focusing on clean eating.
