Darren had a few spare moments to chat with us about his business and here’s what he had to say:

Can you tell us a little bit about Frontier Play and the products and services you offer?

How long have you been selling Vanguard Inflatables?
We’ve been in business for almost 10 years and selling Vanguard rafts almost as long.

What do you love about these boats?
Vanguard rafts are tough and track extremely well.

What is your favorite part of being involved in the water sport industry?
People in the outdoor industry seem to be relatively easy going and great to work with. I believe that those who recreate have a better balance in live and not stressed out…

If you only had one Vanguard, which one would it be?
Most definitely the 15′
