Tony Smith - Founder Tony is an entrepreneur, adventurer, outdoorsman and all around random person. Looking for a respite from his day job in finance, these complimentary passions inspired him to build his first wood SUP in his South Austin garage. From this humble beginning he founded Jarvis Boards with the simple mission of building the best handcrafted wood SUP on and for the planet. Since then he has led the charge in pushing the boundary of wood paddle board design. Tony has a passion for inspiring others to break free of their comfort zones and spend time experiencing new adventures.
