The rise of coastal rowing

The growth of coastal rowing has taken many in the sport by surprise. However it is not always straightforward to find a way to get involved so Filippi are now running a series of coastal training camps in Italy to give people that opportunity. The growth of the sport is also good news for us as Active Tools shoes have now become the standard solution in almost all the top sea rowing boats (although we still sell many more to river based clubs).
