...some new arrivals on our site
We’ve decided to share our space with a few like-minded companies.
Starting with a few, and adding more over time, we're building an online village for brands who build products for a lifestyle in, on and around the water.
In addition to a marketplace, we’re building a place for sharing stories. Stories that describe this shared love of the water, and the people and places that inspire us.
Come back to visit us often.

What is the history behind this sport? You may be surprised to learn how far back the roots of stand up paddling go. It seems that man has always been curious about getting out on the water. The earliest crafts were rudimentary models of our current boards, but they started the trend for present day stand up paddling.

The sport has been through a radical transformation over the years in terms of its purpose, techniques, and paddleboard equipment. Here’s a quick rundown to remind you there’s more history to that board under your feet than meets the eye.
