Due to the size and vulnerable nature of our paddleboards, we deliver your board directly to you. Shipping companies just don’t take the care and precautions to insure your board arrives safely to you. We’ve seen damaged boards too many times, so we took control of the situation by investing in trucks, trailers and a staff of drivers. That said, coordinating deliveries throughout the country creates some challenging logistics, so please be patient with us as we get your delivery date pinned down. With long hauls come mechanical issues as well, so sometimes we’ll ask for some flexibility, but we assure we’ll stay in touch to get your board to you and on the water as soon as possible! Thanks for choosing Great Lakes Paddleboards.
