We have a variety of paddleboards for all abilities. Our inflatable boards can roll up and fit in a bag. They are lightweight and stable, great for playing off the beach on flat water. Solid boards are perfect for speed and performance and are ideal for going in a bit of swell. Our board range from 10’2” up to 11’4” and are designed for different people and abilities. Our staff will advise the best board for you.
