Jarvis began because we know firsthand that building a wood paddle board changes who you are, what you can do, and how you navigate the world.
In 2015, we began crafting custom boards for clients one by one. We made over 1000+ hollow wooden boards that continue to cruise waterways around the globe today.
In 2019 we changed course by packaging up our designs & expertise into a beginner-friendly kit for the at-home builder. Our goal was (and still is) to share the joy & satisfaction of building a board from scratch that can be used proudly for generations.
Today, we invite you to join our global community of DIY and outdoor enthusiasts. Together, we lean into the uncertainty of a new project, and we believe that…
1. The DIY spirit can be cultivated in everyone
We are dedicated to offering ambitious individuals the chance to make something unique with their own hands, to learn new skills and gain a sense of accomplishment. No matter who you are or what you’ve built in the past, we believe in your creative ability to bring your vision to life with a little help from Jarvis.
2. Your craft is for you and for others
Building a premium wood paddle board is a great way to invest in yourself and in the future. The lasting nature of these boards allows yourself and future generations to enjoy the same quality and durability. While building and paddling alone can be extremely calming and we encourage it, we are all wired for connection. Sharing our projects with friends & family is what it’s all about.
