Our Story

Isle Surf & SUP got started in San Diego, California in early 2004 by two surfers with nothing more than a love for the ocean, a dream and some lint in their pockets.  From the start, we knew if we concentrated on developing high quality, value driven products we could make it work.

What started in our parents’ storage unit has grown into a premiere board company and one of the largest online retailers of boards in the United States.  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.

We believe you can’t buy happiness ­– but you can buy a surfboard or paddle board. And that’s pretty close!

Enjoy the Ride,

The ISLE Crew


Company Values

  • Always put the customer first. Without them, we wouldn’t be in business!  If a customer has an issue, do everything in your power to fix it.
  • Create value for our customers.  Develop and sell high quality products we can stand behind and are proud of.
  • Listen to our customers’ feedback, and strive to continually improve to meet their demands.
  • Create a highly positive work environment to promote a balance between work and an active lifestyle.

If you think we have missed our mark, we would love to hear from you.
