Double your paddling power with double the blade SUP accesory! With an additional blade instead of a handle, take to the seas with a unique paddle that will have you working both sides of your body.

This SUP accessory is a goofy one!

Besides your usual pool floats, there are fun attachments you can put on your board to make your SUP take on the shape of a shark or unicorn. The perfect addition if you have young kids! Even comes with a seat!


Did you know inflatables come in all shapes and sizes?

We're not just talking about your usual 11' or 11'6'' boards. We're talking about BIG. Like...18' and can hold up to 6 people big! These are a ton of fun especially if you have a bunch of paddling friends in your life.

Want to have the flexibility of owning both a SUP and a kayak? But maybe you don't want to spend the extra $$ on two expensive pieces of equipment. This is the perfect SUP accessory for you! Easily turn your SUP into a kayak with his adaptable seat! Just latch it onto the center of the board and combine it with the previously mentioned double-sided paddle and you're good to go! At a fraction of the cost. It's a win-win!


Just as there are endless places to explore on a SUP, there are also endless ways to utilize your board.

We hope these few accessories inspired you to continue expanding your idea of the sports and most importantly- keep having FUN!
