Speedboard USA is a stand-up paddle (SUP) board company designing and building innovative boards for the performance paddler. Each Speedboard is specifically designed to promote paddling efficiency, enabling elite racers, avid paddlers and SUP enthusiasts to move through the water faster, with less effort.
The founding spark for Speedboard was lit when a lifelong passion for paddling was combined with a friendly wager to complete a renowned New England paddling competition in a unique way. In 2009, Bob built himself a board and went on to become the first person to complete the 20-mile Cape Ann Blackburn Challenge on a SUP board. Since that auspicious debut, Speedboard has developed into a premium SUP brand, delivering performance oriented boards to competitive and casual paddlers alike.
Superior glide character and stability are at the core of every Speedboard. It is from this foundation we provide our customers with an optimal paddling experience and ensure they have a competitive advantage in the water. To further this cause, Speedboard USA has teamed up with Zurn Yacht Design to bring our boards to the next level. Together with Zurn, Speedboard is able to combine over 50 years of competitive race paddling experience with modern hull design theory and advanced composite knowledge to bring paddlers cutting edge board designs.

In addition to creating our line of SUP boards, we’ve got a hard core group of athletes that represent Speedboard at races across the country. Please check out the Race Team section of our site dedicated to these elite paddlers.
