Pilot customer jumps into the Shark Tank

Last year, Pilot’s San Diego station started working with a Pacific Beach-based company called Tower Paddle Boards, handling their entire supply chain from the import of their products from overseas to warehousing and domestic distribution. The startup sells stand up paddleboards direct-to-consumer, taking a unique, web-based approach to this fast-growing market.

Next week, Tower will gain a whole new level of exposure when founder Stephan Aarstol appears on ABC’s popular show, “Shark Tank,” where they will ask the “sharks” to invest in the company.

Everyone at Pilot is extremely excited for Tower, and we’re rooting for a bidding war among the investors!

Tune in on March 16th at 8/7c to check out the show. Good luck, Stephan!
