At Jarvis Boards, one of the things we love most is coming up with and building new custom paddle board designs. As you are aware, each week we release limited edition paddle boards. For these wooden SUPs, we start with our standard lightweight paddle board templates and kick them up a notch by adding custom wood inlays, graphics, and more. Each one is inspired by life's true events. For this week, we've got an eclectic mix of high quality paddle boards that we are releasing. Like all of our limited edition paddle boards, we've only built one or two of each and they don't last long. To see our current inventory of one of a kind limited edition paddle boards, click HERE.
Inspired by our times spent traveling and paddle boarding in California, we built a pair of paddle boards paying homage to the California flag. For this SUP, we've inlayed the California bear and added the signature red star for a touch of color. We've made two of these, one is 10'4 while the other is 11'4 based on our all around paddle board template, the San Marcos. The San Marcos is one of our most popular paddle boards and you can see more about this model HERE.
Like many this time a year, we made a commitment to focus on work-life balance. All of our wood paddle boards are individually handcrafted in our studio in Austin, TX. Each one is a labor of love that takes countless hours. This doesn't always leave time for relaxing outside of the studio. As such, we've made a commitment to focus on work-life balance. As such, we've inlayed the classic Yin/Yang in the top side of our most versatile paddle board model, the San Marcos. Like all of our limited edition SUPs, we've only made one of these in each size, 10'4 and 11'4.
We are pretty sure that we have found the answer.... LOVE! We've only made one of these custom paddle boards and it could be one our favorite wooden paddle boards to date. We took our standard 10'4" San Marcos board and inlayed the word "Love" using cherry wood. Not satisfied with using wood only, we wanted to use a mix of inlays and graphics adding in the hibiscus flower for a touch of color. This one of a kind paddle board is one of the best paddle boards around and is sure to be a head turner all summer long.
