Freshwater Bay is defined by the surf. For those of us that live here, our connection to the waves is both real and essential.
At Freshwater Bay Paddleboard Co, we deeply respect that connection and mirror its value to us in the unwavering quality of each and every board we make.
Sure, there are cheaper boards on the market, some of which are even ‘good enough’. But, when ‘good enough’ isn’t ‘good enough’ for you, there will always be Freshwater Bay Paddleboards.
The Classic SUP Range
Designed for both the serenity of flatwater paddling and the thrill of the surf.
Each Classic SUP design is available in 2 sizes; 9”11 and 10’6. The 9’11 is slightly more maneuverable and responsive for lighter and or more experienced riders, whereas the 10’6 is more stable and planted for heavier and or less experienced riders.
The perfect balance between performance and practicality; everyday SUP’ing without the hassle!
Our iSUPs are available in 2 sizes; 10’6 and 11’5. The 10’6 is stable enough for any new rider to get on the water, but manoeuvrable enough to keep experienced riders happy too. The 11’5 is a high-end compact tourer, the perfect combination of glide, stability and manoeuvrability.
What the experts said…
‘With aesthetics to rival any SUP board out there, it’s an attention-grabbing SUP from the outset with plenty of admiring glances shot its way during testing.’
Talking waves, the thinned out pintail encourages turning, and it’s super fun gunning down small to medium swells…’
‘With wave prowess in buckets, it’s also a fun recreational board!’

Oftentimes riders miss the importance of SUP paddles, thinking more about the board. You certainly need a platform to stand on but, with the paddle being stand up’s defining piece of kit, due attention should be given to the ‘engine’. But where to start? Here is what the experts said…
‘With its accurate power delivery and ability to dig the Freshwater Bay Paddleboard Co two piece carbon adjustable SUP paddle is worth the upgrade and should definitely be considered as your step up ‘engine’. ‘
