Real Wood

Don’t be fooled by the foam core paddle boards masquerading around as eco-friendly with their wood veneers.

At Little Bay Boards we only build paddle boards that are truly eco-friendly.

Our paddle boards are lightweight and float because they are built with a wooden rib and spine frame structure which create a hollow core interior.  No foam needed!

The exterior of our paddle boards are built with, sustainably forested Cedar woods hand selected for their beauty.

Cedar is a strong but lightweight material that allows us to work with nature to compose an ultimate display of beauty throughout the skins, fin, rails, paddle shaft, and blade.

Eco-friendly Epoxy

For added strength, durability, and waterproofing, fiberglass and epoxy are applied to help ensure that when treated properly, these paddleboards will last a lifetime.  We use epoxy that is UV stable ensuring the finish remains clear as day one and will not yellow over time.


As always, a “featherlight” handmade wood paddle is included with each paddle board purchase.

The unique bent shaft drives strokes deeper and faster with no deflection which helps ease up the wear and tear on the paddler’s shoulders for much longer peaceful times out on the water.
