Customer Appreciation :: Mahalo

We'd like to give a big shout out to all of our new, and repeat, clients that helped us grow our business this year, taking it to an even higher level...despite the stagnant economic environment...mahalo...

Our byline is "Stoked For Life"...thanks for being a part of our ohana...and, choosing us to provide you with the gear that makes you stoked for life...

We know that you have lots of choices, so again, mahalo for your patronage...

Many of you have found us online...we do have a strong online presence...and, have for a dozen years...our web traffic is phenomenal...however, one of the things that separates us from the dotcom ecommerce sites with stoopid domain names, popping up all over the place, trying to lure you in with bait and switch tactics, is the fact that we have heaps of inventory actually in stock...with a real brick and mortar retail storefront presence, not just a collection of small images with click & buy links...going to products that don't exist...or, are getting drop shipped from another store for them when they finally get a board or two from the manufacturer...

These are big ticket items...we want you to feel as comfortable making your purchase from a distance, as the clients we have walking in and out of our doors daily...we want to have a conversation with you...and, customize your purchase to perfection...not just try to sell you a "one size fits all package" based solely on low price...might as well go to your local Wally World for that...

Those online only entities will never be able to post up images of stoked clients and friends leaving their stores...because the posers don't have a store...;-)





















I suppose they can always "borrow" our images...unfortunately, sad but true...whatevers...they will always be frustrated trying to play catch up...as we have years and years of *REAL* customer testimonials...and, years and years of pics of *REAL* stoked clients...their smiles are each worth 1000 words...

Standup Paddle (SUP) Boards

We offer you a few more choices in standup paddle board selection since the days way back in 2006, when we offered you the world's first production epoxy molded SUP's in two sizes and two colors...

The 2010 Naish SUP line has expanded to 21 boards...and the Starboard line in 2010 will be at least 27 wide...with 4 construction choices...

We are starting to see lots of "paralysis by analysis" when it comes to selecting a standup paddle board for you or your family...we are the experts in this field and WE'RE HERE TO HELP!!!

We're the #1 standup paddle board store in the country...our expert staff makes it easy for you...when you are ready to purchase a SUP, you're gonna have to trust someone...fact is, thousands of folks have trusted us to help them...we have a proven track record of over 10 years of providing great customer service...

Simply call us toll free 888.805.9978 or email i n f o @ s u r f i n g s p o r t s . c o m...there's a link at the bottom of every page on our site...you're welcome to come visit our shop if you can get to beautiful Santa Barbara...we're open every day 10 - 5 PDT...we'll get your SUP buying decision sorted out for you in no time...then you'll be smiling for miles...just like these happy customers...

















We have the best selection...best value...and the bestest and most knowledgeable service of standup paddle boards and paddles on the planet...we've shipped SUP's to all 50 states in the country...our shipping experts are the best in the business...

We have a real store staffed by standup paddlers...we host free demos, offer lessons, host standup paddle races, and are involved in the community...

Please remember that you get what you pay for...don't fall for the newest scourge that we've seen lately of the dozens of cheesy SUP websites popping up with no storefronts shilling cheap SUP knockoffs...boards are not created equal...construction technology does matter...

Summertime Thangs...

Bill Foote (Maui) is in town...he'll be helping us unload a container of his awesome SUP's in a few days...including the highly anticipated new 9'10" x 29.5" wing swallow high performance wave ripper...it's clearing customs right now...

Jason and his family were in town for a weekend getaway...he is a firefighter who was deployed from LA on the last two Santa Barbara fires...we met them at our fav Italian family restaurant Petrinis...locals treated them to dinner to show appreciation for his (and all of the firepeoples) courageous efforts to save lives and properties...we invited him down to a demo we were doing and he took us up on it...standup paddling for the first time with his very cute (and precocious...;-) daughter, Allison...





Kenny K came down from the Central Coast to fill his king of all Sprinter Vans up with a couple of more SUP's...a Naish Glide and a Starboard 8'5" Pocket Rocket...here's Kenny's customized pad job...









We had the pleasure of hooking up Lori Ann David and her family with a couple of new Starboard SUP's...she is an amzing landscape designer and architect...organic farmer...drives a classic '54 GMC pickup truck...











Steve's '56 Chevy is pretty sweet as well...





Lots of folks riding and picking up our Imagine ECO SUP's lately...including a couple from Northern California who flew down in their plane to pick one up...
Here's a 10'6" in Brian's Jeep...and, Greg has his ECO stoke going as well...
