What is paddleboarding?
Paddleboarding is a sport that has really taken off into a main street sport in the last 10 years.
Even three years ago, people would come into the shop daily and ask, “What is paddleboarding?” There are many different types of SUP’s or Stand Up Paddle Boards that are designed for many different uses. Today people all around the world are doing all types of things on Paddle boards. I have seen paddle boarders fishing, surfing, touring, spearfishing, lobstering, wake surfing, doing Yoga, racing and even taking on white water rapids.
Paddleboarding has an appeal that is backed by the relaxing nature of the sport. People can get a great full-body workout while enjoying a relaxing, leisurely cruise on the water. Paddleboarding originated as an ancient Hawaiin sport and is now becoming a familiar word all over the world. People are paddleboarding everywhere from Egypt to Alaska these days. Because the boards are easy to transport, can be used on almost any body water and are far more affordable than alternative means of water recreation, the sport has a very large audience and continues to be one of the fastest growing sports in the world. Another factor that has helped the growth of paddleboarding is the quick learning curve. Paddle boarding can be done by people of almost any size and skill level. There is a very minimal level of balance and skill required as long as you are on the RIGHT BOARD. We offer beautiful, ultra-light weight, very durable, high end, wood paddle boards hand shaped with unsurpassed craftsmanship at an affordable price, directly to the public. Most boards are considered to be either flat water boards, race boards or surfing paddleboards, our boards are hybrid boards. On our boards we want everyone to have the ability to cruise the flat water on an evening cruise, surf an incoming swell or compete in a local race all on the same board.
