About Stand on Liquid Paddle Board Team

Founded in 2010 and based in beautiful Bend, Oregon, Stand on Liquid’s guiding principle is that there's a perfect board for every type of paddler.

We offer the largest inventory of paddle boards and board accessories on the West Coast, designing and selling the Stand on Liquid collection, as well as distributing nearly 60 other trusted brands of boards and accessories.

When we're not working with customers to find the perfect board, we love to spend our free time on the local rivers and lakes, as well as the cold waters of the Oregon coast (or the warm waters of Punta Mita, Mexico and Hawaii’s Kohala Coast). By doing so, we believe we've created a dynamic SUP development lab, obsessed with learning what resonates with customers.

Send us an email, give us a call or even better, visit us at our shop on Reed Market Road. We’ll help you find the perfect board!

Your Board. Your Adventure.

  • About: My work life centers around finding the perfect board for each paddler; it's an awesome responsibility and a lot of fun.

  • About: Life revolves around my kids with my wife and I trying to keep up with all their activities and sports. Summers are about adventures, fun on the water, discovering new places and going back to favorites. My go to summer sports are paddle boarding (of course), running, and mountain biking. Winter is about skiing, both Nordic and alpine. Yep, the classic Bend lifestyle we all moved here for. I also love to fly fish, especially back on Cape Cod. See you on the lake, river, beach, and mountain!
