The Shop

Carolina PaddleBoard Co

The door’s always open!

Our shop, Carolina PaddleBoard Co., is the culmination of years of passion and involvement in the burgeoning stand up paddle lifestyle. What first started with a trip to visit friends in Maui back in 2005 led to an entirely new outlook on surfing and ways to stay on the water.

Beautiful waterfront location. Drive in; paddle out

Our goal is to introduce people to SUP in a way that is easy, enjoyable, and safe while sharing the stoke, passion, and experience we have found in our own journeys.

If we aren’t at work, odds are we’re in the water!

Stop by and see what paddling is about. You may find yourself motivated to WORK LESS & PADDLE MORE!

The Team

553417_306534972775924_757761859_n

Led by fearless paddler, shiz wrangler, dock jumper, and rock-star hair wearer Jason Colclough, the Carolina PaddleBoard Co. team works day in and day out to make sure you have the most fun experience, find the best board for you, and get started paddling the right way.

Regular team members include Ann, Bailey, and Erik–each with their own talents and specialties. (Teaching, talking, and schlepping, respectively.)

Looking for a new board? Give us a call–we’ll be happy to discuss your options!

The Barnacles

Carolina PaddleBoard Co. isn’t just a shop–it’s a family. Sure, you can rent or buy a board from us and never come back. That’s the exception, rather than the rule. Stop by the shop, and you’re likely to find one of the regulars hanging around, coming in from a paddle, or ready to talk shop. We call our enthusiastic frequent visitors “The Barnacles.” They grow on you, and they’re hard to get rid of. Not that we want to!
