One thing that I think is pretty cool is seeing the different graphic designs that paddle-related businesses come up with. (Wow, that’s a clunky sentence, but you know what I mean.) Of course, function is paramount, but it doesn’t hurt to have something pretty to look at when you’re spending hours with your board and paddle. Here are some of the most eye-catching designs I’ve seen lately, along with some bonus clothing items because, well. It’s my blog post and I DO WHAT I WANT.

What are your favorite designer SUPs?

Rhizotomy Paddleboards

Riviera Paddlesurf

Of course, Riviera has their awesome art series of paddles! What I thought was a cheetah print is actually part of the “branch” series. I still want it.

FTC Disclosure: This is not product placement. I was just bored and thinking about all of my awesome clothes. And how I would paint my boards if I had an artistic cell in my body. Since I don’t, I will accept gifts.
