The First Board

wood paddle board

This First Board, the one that started it all, was built for Jason’s daughter (who was 9 years old at the time) who requested an eco-friendly paddle board.

Jason built this board because he couldn’t afford to buy her one.  He stumbled across a “build your own” E-book and the rest is history.

This board has been everything from a paddle board, surf board, slide, dance stage, sandcastle base, wall hanger and a humble reminder of what Little Bay Boards started out as, just something fun to build.

At its time of creation, Little Bay Boards didn’t have a name or even an idea that 140 Boards later, Jason would still be challenging himself to build the greatest boards the world has known.
