The feeling of being out on the water on a stand up paddle board is like floating on air.

Shark SUP's was founded by Alan Xu after he fell in love with stand up paddle boarding. It only took one time and he was hooked!
Alan loved the experience of “being out on the water,” and wanted to share it with more people.
He was shocked when he saw the prices for top-of-the-line paddle boards. Next, he looked at inflatable paddle boards which were easier to carry and cost less, but they weren’t very well made.
Frustrated that there wasn’t an easy way for Alan and his friends to get out on the water and have fun, he decided to build his own board: a high-quality inflatable SUP that could perform equal or better to a traditional stand up paddle board.
Two years later, in 2014, after working directly with engineers and testing the models himself, Alan launched Shark SUPs and we released our first board. Since then, we’ve rapidly grown to become a global brand that’s trusted for high quality SUPs and reliable customer support.
To this day, our mission remains the same, to get more people out on the water so they can have the same amazing experience that Alan had the first time on a stand up paddle board.
