If you are in the market for a new board, whether it’s your first ride, or another board for your quiver, you can demo a wide range of boards. At the very least, you’ll get a good ‘feel’ for what you like (or dislike) and from there, it’s easier to choose the right board for you.

  • SUP Gear –  The shop is fully stocked with everything you’ll need to get started. Board bags, tie-downs, deck attachments and much more. Looking for something just ask!

Inflatable Revolution


Want the ultimate portable SUP solution?  Maybe an inflatable paddleboard package is the best solution for your life.  If you are space-challenged or have a vehicle without a roof rack, an inflatable board kit can be stored in the trunk or backseat with ease.

With new developments in construction, most of the new boards can take up to 20psi and offer good glide and a smooth ride on the water.  They are light to carry, easy to store, and the perfect solution for adventurous travelers and those who live in condos / apartments / VW Vans but still want a good performing board.

What about the thickness?

  • 4″ thick boards are best for lightweight paddlers and perform better in the surf
  • 4.75″ to 6″ thick boards offer more flotation, stiffness and the ability handle more weight (think gear, kids, dogs, etc.)

We have a wide range of inflatables in demo fleet and for sale:

  • Starboard Astros – 9′, 10′, 10’5, 11’2, 11’6, 12’6, 14′ (up to 18psi)
  • Red Paddle – 9’6, 10’6, 11′, 12’6  (up to 25psi)
  • Naish – 10′, 11′, 11’6, 12’6 (up to 14psi)
  • Twin Fish – 10′, 10’2, 10’7, 11’6 (up to 18psi)

You are so Rogue…


Rogue returns to the forefront of SUP Design with their brand new 2015 quiver. Building on the success of their popular All-Water line, a new Blue and Pink series is now available alongside their classics line. Their performance boards (racing and touring) feature a quiver of updated shapes, new graphics and tons of useful features.  New for 2015, Rogue is now offering select models in their new R9 construction making them even more affordable.


All-Waters -Rogue has cornered that part of the market with their impressive line of graphic-drenched All-Water boards.  Notably the first SUP company to veer away from centered logos and traditional longboard lines, Rogue has been the innovator and one look at their boards will tell the story.  The best part is they back it up with industry-leading construction all at a reasonable price.  Available in 102′, 10’8′ and 11’2′ lengths.

Touring Series (11’4″ & 12’6) – Built to suit paddlers who want the speed and glide of a displacement style hull (think smooth and fast) yet portable enough for anyone to load without a struggle. It includes built-in tie-downs for packing gear on the front and back.

Touring 11'6 and 12'6 in R9 Construction

Touring 11’6 and 12’6 in R9 Construction

Utility SeriesLooking for a stable board for both flatwater and surf? The Tesoro line offers up both and although they’ve kept the look on the conservative side, the extra width makes them attractive to newbies and intermediate paddlers.

R1 Race (12’6) and Vandal (14′) – Coming off yet another successful test at the 2014 Battle of the Paddle, they have finally put their race boards into production and they rank among the flashiest on the market.  At around 26lbs, the 12’6 stock-class racer is a dialed production board with carbon inlay and it’s bigger brother, the 14′ R1 Race version is a stealth flatwater flyer.
