Reno, NV-based Lakeshore Paddleboard Co. was originally founded in 2009 and has since grown into a well-respected SUP brand focused mainly on recreational and touring boards. Lakeshore SUPs are known for their beautiful designs, low rockers, outstanding flatwater performance.
In addition to a full line of hard and inflatable paddle boards, Lakeshore also offers a range of paddling accessories including bags, paddles, leashes, and more.
For 2019, the Lakeshore inflatable SUP line consists of just two models: an 8’6″ youth board and a 12′ touring iSUP.
Lakeshore Paddleboard Co.’s Warranty
While the vast majority of stand up paddle board companies guarantee their SUPs for anywhere from 1 to 3 years, Lakeshore SUP boards are only covered for 180 days against manufacturer defects. This is definitely something to take into consideration as warranty coverage is important, especially when dealing with iSUPs.

Lakeshore Mr. Toad's Wild Ride
A fun youth model that’s built to handle the abuse that kiddos are known for, the Lakeshore Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride measures 8’6″ x 26″ x 4″ and weighs in at only 14 pounds.
Like Lakeshore’s other boards, the Mr. Toad’s Wild Ride model is designed for maximum glide and it’s a great option for younger paddlers who are in need of a better performing board than the typical all-around children’s iSUP.
This SUP features front and rear bungee storage areas for plenty of onboard storage capacity and there are also convenient grab handles located at the nose and tail. The high-quality inflation valve is located at the nose of the board for easier deflation and packing, and the soft EVA foam traction pad features a comfortable brushed surface that is easy on the hands and feet.
A fast inflatable touring SUP that’s designed with paddling efficiency and longer distances in mind, the Lakeshore Pathfinder features a long, sleek shape and low rocker profile for maximum glide in flatwater conditions. Measuring 12′ x 31″ x 6″ and weighing in at 24 pounds, the Pathfinder packs 265 liters of volume and is capable of supporting up to 300 pounds of weight.
A 6-point bungee storage area at the nose provides a secure place to stash your dry bag or backpack and the secondary 4-point bungee cargo area at the tail is perfect for those times when you’ve got a passenger occupying the nose of the board.
The comfy brushed EVA foam traction pad is great for longer paddles and the front and rear grab handles are really helpful for pulling the board in and out of the water.
