Ben Buckler stand up paddle boards are designed to make you look awesome and help you become a great paddler and surfer. You can paddle our boards on flat water while learning and gradually make your way into the surf when you’re ready.
How the country’s best SUPs were created
We grew up surfing and developed these woody retro designs into stable, light and manoeuvrable stand up paddle boards (SUP). In terms of shape, we focused on developing all-rounder SUP’s (because it suits the majority of people, including ourselves) and we added a few extra subtle surfing touches, such as a double concave in the tail section, single concave under the nose and extended the underside tail rail to the midsection of the board, to give you extra grab on the side of a wave.
The modern design of our stand up paddle boards
Each SUP has the traditional wooden stringer & epoxy foam core, wrapped in a wood effect and sealed with strong epoxy fibreglass resin. The nose and tail of the board is made with traditional real wood for aesthetics and to protect the board. Each SUP has bamboo veneer inlaid under the deck grip to increase strength under the standing area without adding too much weight overall.
Our stand up paddle boards are made in small batches, and over the past 12 years, we have perfected the board into an amazingly refined product suitable to mount on your living room wall. In fact, our boards are displayed in several cafes and pubs around Australia.
Every single aspect of our stand up paddle board design and build has been reviewed, tried, tested and perfected in Bondi, Sydney, Australia, by passionate beach-loving people, our staff and our awesome customers. We’re super stoked to offer you the best stand up paddle boards in Australia for your enjoyment.

Both types of stand up paddle boards have their benefits. Inflatable SUPs are great for flat water paddling, and they’re light and highly portable, but if you’re looking to board in the waves, you’ll want a hard shell SUP to give you the solidity and stability that you need in the surf.
