About Us 1


In a world where finding balance is a challenge, ISLE is here to make it easier. We believe life is better in balance, and that finding balance can be as simple as taking your first paddle strokes or catching your first wave.

Our mission is to inspire and equip for a life that's better in balance through adventure on the water.

  2. FAIR PRICING – We’re committed to making the many benefits of paddle boarding accessible for everyone.
  3. THOUGHTFUL, INSPIRED DESIGNS – We are quality over quantity. Form and function—everything we make is designed with purpose.
  4. EARTH-MINDED – We make a conscious effort to reduce harm from our byproducts, and support ocean conservation programs.
  5. SMOOTH SHOPPING – We aim to deliver the best paddle board shopping experience on the planet.


In 2004, we founded ISLE with the mission to bring paddle boarding, and all it does for our overall health and well-being, to as many people as possible.

In the beginning, we were just two San Diego surfers fresh out of college with nothing more than a dream of following our passion and some lint in our pockets. One day we decided to leave behind our newly found corporate jobs and haven’t looked back since. What started out in our parents’ storage unit back in 2004 has grown into a premiere board company and one of the largest online retailers of paddle boards in existence. From the start, we knew if we concentrated on developing high-quality, value-driven products we could make it work. Our outstanding track record over the years shows just how far we’ve come.

We ship within the lower 48 states, with an international customer base as well as a busy retail store located in San Diego, CA. With enthusiasts running the business each and every day, we're here to spread our passion for the water one happy customer at a time.

Questions, comments or suggestions? We’d love to hear from you.
