Every Tidal Roots Paddleboard Sold Benefits The Maine Island Trail

ELIOT, MAINE – Tidal Roots is partnering with the Maine Island Trail Association (MITA) to help support America’s first recreational water trail in America.  Since Tidal Roots manufactures “green” paddleboards out of local Maine cedar in New England, the fit to help MITA was a clear decision for founders Kyle Schaefer and Kent Scovill.  Tidal Roots has commits to donate $10 for every paddleboard sold to the well-established water trail, which spans over 200 coastal islands along the 375 miles of stunning Maine coast line.  “MITA is one of Maine’s finest gems, offering members and other users a wilderness-feeling adventure right in our own backyard” said Kyle Schaefer.

“We look forward to developing our relationship with MITA and helping to organize island clean-ups, and possibly adopting an island that Tidal Roots will be able to assist in care taking” said Kent Scovill.
