SUP ATX introduced the concept of Stand Up Paddleboarding in lakes, rivers and surfing areas throughout the United States and around the world beginning in 2008. In their first year, SUP ATX established itself as the #1 Stand Up Paddle Board Maker Worldwide which it remains to this day. SUP ATX started in Malibu, California when Travis Stassart and Mitch Taylor of Becker Malibu got SUP ATX founder Nick Matzorkis into paddle surfing. Immediately hooked, Nick was convinced the interest and demand for stand up paddling would be far greater in inland United States lakes and rivers than coastal regions. Sharing this vision with 25 year Becker veteran Mike Bill, they launched SUP ATX to develop, manufacture and distribute stand up paddle boards designed for ocean, lake AND river usage. The result is the SUP ATX line of stand up paddle boards that have since defined and revolutionized the stand up paddle board industry worldwide, officially moving the sport from the shores of Hawaii and Malibu to lakes, rivers and surfing areas everywhere.
SUP ATX Paddleboards
All ATX SUP Boards are made for use by a wide variety of sized people in both flatwater and waves. SUP ATX Boards come in 10, 11 and 12 foot lengths. The performance differences between the different sizes and models of Paddleboards are subtle. Longer boards are more stable, shorter boards are more maneuverable. The higher priced boards are slightly lighter with greater durability and have a few extra features. Rest assured, you'll be happy and pleasantly surprised with the extremely high quality and great looks of any SUP ATX you choose!
