- About Us
The "OB" of OB Boards is an acronym for Orange Blossom, which is the official state flower of Florida. The naming of the company was an attempt at a small recognition of and giving thanks to a place that is beautiful, exciting, exotic, diverse, warm and welcoming. It's a place that has always held its arms open wide to us, and is also where we call home.
What began as a hobby, quickly became a passion. Eventually, after the continuing and enthusiastic local support that we were receiving encouraged us to move forward, OB Boards was born. Now, we want to share the product of our passion with the SUP community and welcome you to the OB Boards family.
OB Boards stand up paddle boards are fully hand-crafted. Our commitment to fine craftsmanship can be seen in every detail. OB Boards sup boards are 100% Made in the USA, and receives 40 hours of hands-on custom design, construction, and finish to ensure that our stand up paddle boards all receive the absolute highest attention to detail.
Choose from a variety of artistic styles to fit your taste. From dark and sleek, floral, to bright and abstract, you can find the perfect design to express yourself. We feel that your SUP board is an investment in your health and happiness. Your stand up paddle board should be equally as beautiful and visually compelling on the water or on top of your vehicle, as it is displayed on your wall at home or at work.
Each stand up paddle board is constructed by our expert craftsman, using the highest quality materials. We continually incorporate the most modern and technologically advanced materials available, and seamlessly blend those advancements with traditional stand up paddle board construction elements to produce SUP boards that are stronger, lighter, faster and more buoyant than others available.
Located in Saint Petersburg, FL, on the beautiful, award-winning beaches of the Gulf of Mexico is where we fell in love with the endless summer, the water and with stand up paddling. Whether cruising the intercostal waterways, finding our peace during morning SUP yoga, challenging our competitive side at the many SUP races, or enjoying a relaxing sunset paddle on the Gulf, we were paddlers first. Our love of paddling, coupled with our desire and expectation for more from our stand up paddle boards, ultimately led us to design and build our own.
