Just two San Diego surfers fresh out of college with nothing more than a dream of following our passion and some lint in our pockets, we decided to leave behind our newly found corporate jobs and haven’t looked back since. What started out in our parents’ storage unit back in 2004 has grown into a premiere board company and one of the largest online retailers of paddle boards and surfboards on Earth. From the start, we knew if we concentrated on developing high-quality, value-driven products we could make it work. Our outstanding track record over the years shows just how far we’ve come.
We now operate out of our own 15,000 square foot office and distribution center alongside our busy Retail Store in San Diego, CA. Always rider owned and operated, we are here to spread our love of surfing and paddling one happy customer at a time. We wake up excited to go to work every day. This translates into a positive company atmosphere, great products, and satisfied customers.
If you think we have missed our mark, we would love to hear from you.
