More about Riptide

Our Market 

We work with both brick & mortar and on-line retailers. However our energy in direct marketing and support is weighted heavier on the brick & mortar retailer. We all believe strongly on the importance of the brick & mortar store, as they are the local champion of our sport. We understand the importance of on-line marketing and social media to reach and influence consumer buying decisions, however without the local dealer and their energy, our sport would not be the same in popularity or enthusiasm. 

Dealer Contact 

Our focus is working with professional dive retailers, and we break the USA into 10 regions or territories. Our reps are professional sales people as well as active divers and very familial with their dealer base. They travel their territory to meet face to face with all their dealers on a regular basis.  We also reach out each month with a targeted email campaign to around 1300 dealers with a brand focused  email for each company we represent.
