“When we first heard that Hyperspud Sports was for sale, we thought it was a pretty crazy idea. The decision was delayed due to the COVID-19 pandemic, which gave us more time to scheme and plan, and eventually we came to the conclusion that we’d never get another chance like this,” says Heather Pettit, co-owner with her husband Bryan Pettit.
Without question, Hyperspud Sports has always been a hub for the coolest, most adventurous outdoor athletes in North Idaho. Originally founded by John Crock in 1989, Hyperspud Sports set the standard for supplying innovative, high quality, affordable equipment for the outdoor adventurer. His legacy continued through Lauretta Campbell from 2014 to 2020.
Bryan and Heather adore their new gear shop, and they aim to become the epicenter for so many local adventures. “As students at the University of Idaho and recreationists we were customers of Hyperspud Sports when John Crock ran the show, but unfortunately, we only got to know him briefly as customers,” says Heather Pettit. “We’ve lived in Moscow for 15 years and although we’re not born and bred, we’ve explored quite a bit of Idaho. We particularly love that there are so many unique ecosystems, including the hot and dry Hells Canyon, the unusual landscape of Craters of the Moon, and City of Rocks National Monument, plus high-elevation Scotchman Peak near Sandpoint, and the peaks and alpine lakes of the Seven Devils. There are so many places we have explored, but still so many yet to discover.” Moving forward, Bryan and Heather see a mountain of opportunity. They know there’s something for everyone at Hyperspud Sports, and they’re eager to provide great deals with outstanding customer service.
