WELCOME TO RIOT STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDS, OUR NEW REBRANDED NAME. THE WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

hello

Fiiji

I recently returned from the best surf trip of my life, Kalama Kamp Namotu, Fiji.  Months before my trip I spoke with Corran on shaping me a board that would work well in the more powerful waves that Fiji offered up and one that could double as my step up board for those bigger days in my home break of Long Beach NY, the board was perfect for what I needed in Fiji, its a 8’7 x 27.5 Mach 1.  It’s a light and very maneuverable board that also offers great stability and glide without the unnecessary added width that other board companies carry to offset for shorter shapes.  Namotu, Fiji is basically a surfers dream playground!  There are multiple world class surf breaks that surround the small island and for any type of skill level.  The area is also extremely consistent and there is usually a spot that is working almost everyday and for the days where its flat or blown out you can relax by the pool, kite surf, spear fish, dive or snorkel its really great for anyone who loves ocean living.  Big thanks to Kalama Kamp for putting together an unreal week of surfing and paddling clinics, I’d highly recommend anyone who is looking to improve on their SUP to sign up for one.  Also big thanks to Corran SUP for shaping me a board which maximized my surfing enjoyment in Fiji!

Take Apart Paddleboard Animation

Here is a little animation showing the paddleboard coming together.

Pack and Paddle

There are three main issues with paddleboards that this new board solves. 1) Cost 2) Portability and storage and 3) Adaptability. We are bringing a board to market that costs less than traditional boards, can be packed into a small bag for transport and storage, and can be adapted using the various pieces for different uses (for the same user) or different users (of varied size).

While there are paddleboards under $1000, most are of questionable quality. With this board we’re bringing a quality product to market, MADE IN THE USA, for a better price than Asian made products. But the real thing here is how it compacts down. The only other option presently is inflatable boards, which even the best ones on the market flex when stood on, and require time and effort to inflate. This board packs down to a 36″x36″x20″ box that can be shipped USPS (rather than freight forwarder) reducing costs to shops, and from shops to customers. Floor space (which is a premium in stores) is reduced (as is warehouse space) and for the end consumer the board can be taken on public transport, inside a smart car, and stored in the shoe closet: all key points. And finally, the board is adaptable. It can be lengthened and shortened, as needed, for different users, or uses. The same person can use it as a 6′ board for yoga in the above ground pool, as a surfing board at 9′ and as a distance fitness board at 12′. Or a child can use it at 6′, and a 300lbs adult (or two adults) on the 12′ board. The versatility means one family can own one board, and it will work for all.

We’re raising funds for this project here.
