STAND UP PADDLE SPORTS SUP
Historically, Stand Up Paddle Sports SUP is one of the original SUP brands launched in the early 2000’s by one of the pioneers of stand up paddle culture Warren “Wardog” Thomas.
“Wardog” and his wife Debbie started retailing SUP’s in 2006 and opened the first fully dedicated SUP retail location in Santa Barbara a year later, which today is one of the SUP industry’s most influential retailers.
He’s seen it all and that knowledge reflects in Stand Up Paddle Sports SUP line of state of the art designs.
SURF DIVA SUP
The Surf Diva girls, Izzy and Cojo Tihanyi bring the female flavor to the world of SUP with creation of Surf Diva SUP. Izzy is an avid SUP’er , paddling almost every day with the students in the Surf Diva Surf and Standup School in La Jolla, she has paddled almost everything and will bring that knowledge to the design table as we develop a range of SUP’s built specifically for women.
