About Paddle Board Direct

"As a busy physician I have no time to deal with problems. Glenn guided me through the purchase of 2 boards with zero problems. Every question was answered with expert advice; it is clear that these guys know what they are talking about. I would recommend your store to anyone, thanks" Eric - California

"We are extremely happy with our Cruiser DURA-MAX 11'4". It's really beautiful...incredible, better than any board I've ridden. Thanks for the great service, I will be sure to recommend your company! Great service it hard to find! Thanks again!" Codi

"Over many years, I've purchased much equipment from Paddleboard Direct. The service is always fantastic and your recommendations always right. More than ever I'm happy to refer people (clients and friends) to you. Believe me, there will be more purchases to come.. The experience is always great." Vincent

"Hey Glen,
Picked up the Cruiser SUP Classic board this weekend. Thank you so much for the excellent advice on choosing a board to suit my paddling and for a smooth transaction. Many kudos to your packing team...had I known I would have added a dozen eggs with the order. As for the Cruiser Kona Classic board itself (and board bag & paddle),it is a giant step up from what I expected as far as workmanship, quality,and looks. For the time being it stands in our living room as a proud work of art.

I definitely recommend Paddleboard Direct for a truly professional service.
Thanks again." Guy
