In 2012, Jason Thelen built the first “Little Bay Board,” as per request from his 12 year old daughter, who wanted an Eco-Friendly alternative to the plastic and foam paddle boards that dominated the market.

Jason researched, designed and built a paddle board out of wood.
Its hollow core allowed it to be lightweight. Its Cedar skin allowed it to be naturally beautiful.

Jason’s daughter loved riding her board.  People at the beach loved asking her where she got “that board!”  Jason fell in love with the process of building paddle boards AND the idea that he might be able to help reduce the amount of plastic and foam generated from the SUP industry.

    Why Little Bay Boards?

    Because friends don’t let friends ride foam.

    Why Ride on Hollow Wood?

    • It’s better for the planet

    These boards won’t end up in the landfill. They are built to last a lifetime. If they get dinged up they can be repaired and refinished.  If you give up SUPing as a sport, these boards double as amazing wall decor!

    • They are breathtakingly beautiful

    When you see them up close and personal, you will be mesmerized by the results of human and nature’s collaboration working from the palette of each and every knot, wood grain and color tone presented inside of the sustainably harvested lumber.

    • The ride feels like no other

    Like an acoustic guitar, the hollow wood design allows you to feel the resonance of the water beneath your feet in a way not possible on a plastic or foam board.
