Dave Kalama on standup paddle surfing:

"I really like the fact that I'm learning and there's still a lot to learn about it.
It makes mediocre surf really fun again and it gives you that excitement and that enthusiasm to keep you driven to go out
and play in the surf every day which keeps you healthy and keeps your attitude right and keeps life good."

QUESTION OF THE DAY: When you turn on your board...does it return the favor by turning you on?

OURS DO!!!...{:~)

We carry the best built, and best performing, standup paddle boards on the market. We are a leader in the sport of standup paddle surfing. We were the
first company in the world to manufacture lightweight and strong, production vacuum bagged, sandwiched construction, SUP's...and the first company to
introduce these boards with factory installed mast tracks and handles.

Standup Paddle Sports ™ is also the first dedicated standup paddleboard shop to open it's doors to the public in the Americas.
Conveniently located near the waterfront in Santa Barbara, CA.

We have more SUP boards in stock, in more colors and sizes, than most of the other shops put together...and, more arriving almost daily. You can make arrangements for board pick up at our Santa Barbara warehouse (directions), including pad installation, fin selection, and paddle sizing by scheduling an appointment (open 7 days).

We usually get most of our clients in and out to the water in ~ 1 hour or so...your significant others can hang in the tiki lounge or take a short walk to the
world class antique (1915) horse carousel at Chase Palm Park, hang at East Beach, or get all slappy slappy at "Skater's Point" skateboard park...




We are constantly offering our feedback (and yours) to our shapers and board builders...OUR PASSION IS STANDUP PADDLING...
We pay attention to detail and strive for excellence...we only offer top QUALITY proven products...PLEASE, DON'T SETTLE FOR CHEAP KNOCKOFFS!

Yikes!!! We've seen, and heard first hand, about delaminations, leaky and blown out fin boxes, rail disintegration from paddle strikes, snapped in half
boards, discoloration, poor design...etc...etc...
This sport is called S T A N D U P...not, standup F A L L O F F!!! Can you say "BUZZKILL"...:-(
The old addage "YA GET WHATCHA PAY FOR" couldn't ring more true...

Regarding board sizing...ONE SIZE DOES NOT FIT ALL!...
We are standup paddlers and understand the concepts of volume and stability...we'll steer you into the right board for your application...
We won't steer you wrong on your first (or any) board purchase...we standup paddle year-round and take it seriously...so when you're ready to part
with your hard-earned recreational dollars, you won't get a part-time, lukewarm sales intern who doesn't standup paddle (P O S E R) talking down to you
with "brochure speak"...WE ARE A ONE STOP SUP SHOP...when you purchase a SUP from us, you won't have to find another place to buy a leash, fin, paddle, locking straps, & bag...
the online chat forums are filled with frustrated people trying to find this stuff and also get fin recommendations/settings...because, to the sailboard/kiteboard/kayak shop that sold them the board, it's JUST another board to sell...

We take a pragmatic, holistic approach to your board purchase(s)...and pride ourselves on repeat clients...
Read our customer testimonials...our clients are S T O K E D, and we know that you will be , too...

Here's our Quality Assurance statement...

We know these products inside and out...we standup paddle almost daily...(have we said that before?...;-)
We are not a fluffy clothing boutique posing as a surf shop...or, a kayak store just getting into it with stock, but haven't actually done IT...matter of fact,
there's lots of "Johnny Come Latelys", and "Poseurs", tryin' to talk the talk, when they don't walk the walk...
But, your spider senses told you that...and that's why you're here...& not there, right?...;-)

We sell the core hardware to get 'er done right...and done right, the FIRST time!!!



You work hard for your money and this sport is too much fun to not get what you paid for...
We don't have just one or two outdated standup paddle boards sitting in the back of a shop collecting dust, we have over 100 leading edge standup
paddle boards in stock...and new models arriving daily...our SUP board pricing ranges from $799 to $1799 for epoxy...$2195 - $2799 for carbon...and, we ship standup paddle boards to
anywhere in the US of A...


Board Update: We've sold out of many of the SUP's listed below and have replaced them with newer, more updated models...
We'll try and get a new spec list up soon...in the mean time please check the blog, call, or email...things are moving VERY fast around here...
Our sup current board selection includes COREBAN...FOCUS HAWAII...NSP...AMUNDSON HAWAII...STARBOARD...NORTH PACIFIC...BOARDWORKS...

Starboard SUP's...Surf it...Sail it...DO IT STANDING UP!!!


HOE HE'E NALU

The Hawaiian translation means standup paddle surfing. In Hawaiian, "hoe" means paddle... "he'e" means to surf or slide...and "nalu" means wave.

You don't have to possess a Hawaiian royalty bloodline or be King Xtreme Laird to participate in the rebirth of this old school surfing sport popularized by the Waikiki "beach boys"...who used outrigger canoe paddles to surf waves standing up...but, it's not just about surfing...paddling and GLIDE is what ties this sport to the ancient Polynesians...and is why world class surfers such as Laird, Kalama, Gerry Lopez, Buzzy Kerbox, Brian Keaulana, Loch Eggers, Sean Ordonez, Slater, Machado, Malloy brothers, Dave Parmenter...etc..etc...and many other watermen, and women, have embraced it...

Standup paddle boards can roughly be divided into two classes...those better at paddling with more glide...commonly referred to as "downwind" boards, and those optimized for waveriding...of course, all colors of the rainbow exist on the spectrum in between...

To experience the incredible feeling that led to the development of surfing and related surfing sports...the board has to have some natural glide...and to harness that glide, the board has to have some stability...our shapers have developed our line of standup paddle boards to do just that...optimize the perfect blend of glide, stability, and wave worthiness...



Sean Ordonez (master shaper/surfer) gouging a sweet cutback on Big Red



SO dropping in.



SO showing some backside soul style.


As you can see from the pics above, once Sean catches a wave, he uses the paddle for balance and to help initiate turns. The paddle is a natural extension of the surfer. You will access spots that most surfers can't get to, or don't care to ride...

Standup paddling is also a way for people to just enjoy being on the water, getting a core body workout...while paddling sections of coast...but, it's not just for the ocean...you can use the boards to cruise rivers, coves, bays, and lakes.



No Wind...No Waves...No Worries...

Trunkin' it With "Big Red" on Lake Tahoe...H20 Temp 43*F




Standing up while paddling, allows you to see see deeper into the water, where schools of fish are being herded by dolphins, Calico Bass, rays, and starfish cruise around underneath you and the occasional seal swims along side of you.

It's a soulful experience, and a perfect way to enjoy and commune with nature.
Much more elegant and regal than sitting on top of a generic plastic kayak, paddling with a generic plastic paddle...



New and challenging...but, also has ancient roots and soul.

You can also sit on a standup board and paddle, as well as paddle on your knees to work different muscle groups...

The beauty is all of the things that you can do with it...and all of the things to come, as the sport evolves and we evolve with it...connecting with the past and reaching towards the future...matter of fact, we have rebirthed windsurfing...created by putting a sail rig on a longboard in the Baja...
