As an avid whitewater paddler, they noticed there was a gap in the marketplace for high quality, well-built paddle boards that would last season to season. After two years of extensive research and development, they launched SOL Paddle Boards in 2013, bringing to market our tried-and-true Classic Collection. After much fanfare with our first collection launch, it was all the proof they needed that paddlers not only demanded durable, high-quality inflatable boards, but expected nothing less than. So this is what they have hung their hat on from day one, and why they continue to be the leader in this industry. They've been working hard on not one, but two, new collections using the most innovative technology and materials available on the market. With that, they introduce to you the GalaXy Collection and Carbon GalaXy Collection, game-changers for any paddler who wants more stability and durability without compromising maneuverability, speed and portability.
