Austin Paddle Sports is a local company of outdoor water enthusiasts dedicated to the sport of Stand Up Paddling. Our passion resonates in our commitment to environmental awareness, sustainability and our recognition that we’re only able to enjoy SUP if we keep our waterways clean & safe. The shop was designed with the vision not only to service our customers, but also to promote SUP culture here in Austin.
We pride ourselves in being the most informed and unique SUP shop in town. Whether you want a high performance board for surfing, racing, or just cruising in flat water, we have the appropriate board for you. With hundreds of SUP boards available, it’s hard to know what shape, size and model to choose. With our intimate product knowledge and unique demo program which allows customers to “try before they buy,” we’ll ensure you get the right board.
The APS Team is a diversified mix of athletes and outdoorsmen from all walks of life. Our team offers a myriad of perspectives and insight into the sport, predicated on the methodology developed by Yvon Chouinard’s, founder of Patagonia. Our crew has one common thread, we are all users of the products we sell. The staff is on the water paddling daily, continuing our on-going commitment to product knowledge.
