The Big Kahuna…

Orange Board Company

WOAHHHHHH!!! Get ready…get your sea legs and get gliding along the “RAD” waterways of the village.

We’re anglin’ to tell you about these “totally sweet” custom-made boards the peeps at Tampa Bay SUP are selling.

The Orange Board Company,started by our good friend, Kumpa, and his business partner, Chad , make Stand Up Paddleboards that are truly awesome to look at, but once you climb aboard one of these bad boys, you’ll feel the difference of how smoothly it cuts through the water. The boards come in lengths from 10.6 to 12 feet with weights that range from 29 to 32 pounds. Special touches–such as the displacement bow that helps the board track more efficiently, and a “most righteous” pearlized paint job that is second to none–is what we like call “hot-dogging”…but you’ll call it skilled artistry.

Pictured here is Kim Ward, of Tampa Bay SUP along with Chad Fisher, of Orange Board Company with their first customer…none other than former Safety Harbor city commissioner, Debbie White. She’s been paddleboarding for a little over a month and loving ever minute of it.

Soooo, head on down to Philippe Park in Safety Harbor and visit Tampa Bay SUP. They have rentals available so you can take a test paddle on the “Big Kahuna”, and experience a “gnarly” ride on these “most excellent” paddleboards that are locally made.
