AWAKEN YOUR SENSES

THE LOCAL GIRLS

Made with locally grown White Cedar, these Local Girls are knotty, with highlights of exotic pacific Red Cedars which range from light sapwood through mid to deep reddish-brown earthy core color tones.

Our Local Girls come in either a “Mary Jane” or a “Kerri Ann” design style.  Our Mary Janes are a straight line inlay and our Kerri Anns incorporate angled line inlays.

FEEL THE RESONANCE OF WATER

AVALONS

The Avalons are our take on the original classic wood surfboard design styles.  Similar to The Local Girls, these boards come in either straight-line OR angled-lined inlays.  Unlike The Local Girls, the main body of these paddleboards are built with Red Cedar wood, which means no knots!  Red Cedars come in various color tones, ranging from light sapwood through mids to deep reddish-brown earthy core woods.

RIDE A HOLLOW WOODEN PADDLEBOARD

Stoics

These wood paddleboards take elegance to the next level.  The Stoic boards contain a handful of our new Design Collections, including The CoastalsThe Great Mysteries and more.

The Stoic paddleboards are built with Red Cedars which come in various color tones, ranging from light sapwood through mids to deep reddish-brown earthy core woods.  On some boards the wood will contain epic grain patterns and other boards the Red Cedar will be more neutral in its display of grain.  (You will NOT find knots in these boards as you would with the White Cedar woods.)

METICULOUSLY HANDCRAFTED

Zens

Bringing order to chaos, The Zens are built from a variety of White Cedar and Red Cedar woods, with occasional clear white Aspen inlay accents.  The Zens include two design collections, our Wood Interlaced and our River paddleboards.

Wood Interlaced: Paddleboards from the Wood Interlaced design collection have a 7″ strip of intricate “nose to tail” laser-cut design detail.  Our “Shop Bros” love zenning out as they carefully piece together the hundreds of pieces involved in assembling these intricate skins.

River: Our River paddleboards bring peace to all who lay eyes on them with their calming translucent colored epoxy “rivers” running down the center.  To accommodate the translucent effect, these boards are built with a specially designed frame that gives it a “frameless” appearance when holding the translucent portion of the board up to the light.

SUSTAINABLY GROWN LUMBER

Sea Princess

The Sea Princesses are our top shelf offerings for epic paddleboard design. Built with a main body of Red Cedar and often highlighted with Aspen accents the Sea Princesses either come in a fully body intricate laser-cut design or a 7″ intricate laser-cut design with translucent color epoxy inlay down the center.
