Frequently asked questions

How do I know which of your paddle boards will be the best option for me?


We encourage you to call or email us before placing your order. We have some important questions that need answers – that's the best way to get the paddle board that will fit you.




Do we ship paddle boards?


Yes, we can ship our paddle boards all over the world. You can contact us by email, phone or by filling out the contact form – we'll make sure you get the best quote possible.




Are these boards heavy?


Not at all. Actually, most of our boards are lighter or comparable to regular foam boards. The lightest board we have is less than 10kgs and the heaviest is only about 16kgs.




What kind of maintenance is required?


We build our boards to last a lifetime. Still, there are a few rules: 1) do not store your board under direct sunlight. A week or two is not a big deal though 2) paddle boards are hollow inside. Since air inside the board expands and contracts when heated, the vent is used to equalize this internal pressure. All that is required is to turn the vent screw before you head into the water and again when you return to shore




Are wooden paddle boards fragile and easily damaged?


Simple answer is NO. Unless you try to break it intentionally, our boards can last a lifetime. Wood, fiberglass and epoxy resin together create a great composite material that is durable and less prone to damage than typical foam or fiberglass boards. Any superficial damage done to the fiberglass can be easily fixed and removed at home or at any surf board shop.




Are wooden paddle boards better for the environment?


Absolutely. The petroleum based foam core that is standard in most boards has been replaced with an environmentally responsible wood skeleton and air! A standard paddleboard has 150-200 liters of non-recyclable foam inside so this is a big deal for the planet. Foam boards are usually glassed with polyester resin in Thailand and China before being shipped overseas. Wood boards are glassed with 70 percent less resin and use epoxy instead of the weaker polyester resin.




What makes your wooden paddle boards special?


Well, besides being stunning beautiful, our boards are strong and will last forever if properly cared for. Wood has a higher compression strength than foam and bonds relentlessly with epoxy’s. This strength virtually eliminates minor bumps and dings from becoming problems.
