Sliver Paddleboards builds environmentally responsible wood paddleboards built to function to perfection and designed to last a lifetime.
It wasn’t my plan to start a paddleboard company until I read a story about a local guy on Vancouver Island building wood surfboards. The story explained how the wood boards were hundreds of times better for the planet and how they had actually absorbed more harmful C02 while the trees were alive than is consumed during their construction. I had to have a wood SUP.
I looked in to buying a paddleboard kit but there wasn’t anything being sold that interested me. The kits either had goofy construction techniques or the shapes were boxy and unappealing. I wanted a wood board with the shape & performance of a foam board. I designed and built my first wood paddleboard thinking it would be my last. The first board turned out great; it looks as nice today and brings me as much happiness as the first day I used it.
