The Fun Side of Paddleboarding
SUPing, also known as paddleboarding, is a spin on the classic sport of surfing. I’ve always loved paddle boarding since it provides me with a lot of pleasure while also keeping my sanity and making me feel comfortable. To be honest, many of the SUPs I’ve tested and recommend have identical specifications, performance, quality, and design, which is quite usual!
I’ve been doing some research on several paddle board brands that I’d want to test and try. This time, I searched for something unique that is both enjoyable, has good performance, and is also intriguing! Something new.
While scrolling, I came across this exceptional SUP brand on the internet, which piqued my interest! Their collection and diversity wowed me!
The Maddle paddleboards company caught my attention! When I saw their website, I was blown away by how fresh the designs and colors of the paddleboards are! It sparked my curiosity even more, when I saw a video presenting their paddleboards!
It’s as entertaining to watch as the paddle boards on their website. I think this brand is extremely fascinating, so I went ahead and searched for more information about it. Allow me to share it with you!

Who Is Maddle?
Maddle is a Canadian inflatable paddleboard company on a mission to make paddleboarding more enjoyable, creative, and inclusive. Julien Méthot, the founder of the Maddle Boards, shared a brief history of the company.
According to him, after having fun on the water with rented paddle boards, they wanted to buy something for themselves but couldn’t find anything interesting enough that would draw their attention. Every SUP out there looked similar despite the differences in performance. As a result, having the means to do so, they were inspired to design a SUP that would contribute originality and enjoyment to the paddleboarding community.
Water sports are based on performance mostly today, but they wanted something influenced by art too. So, since then, Maddle has aimed to create paddle boards that will stand out in the business. They provide a cool, new-kid-on-the-block treatment to the industry you will seldom find in other SUP companies.
Performance is key, but so is design too.
If you visit their website, you will see that their board designs are impressive! I also discovered that they were designed by actual artists and contain different patterns that are changed yearly.
Upon talking to some SUP experts from the company, I discovered:
- Maddle wants to manufacture paddleboards with a limited amount of each design so that you may be the coolest person on the water without having the same design as everyone else.
- Flexible yet rigid and durable paddle boards that work for the majority and in any sort of body water.
- Maddle ensures they offer fair-priced SUPs in the middle-to-low price range that everyone can afford.
- They aim to design a paddle board that is long-lasting, inexpensive, and suitable for novices yet durable enough to satisfy the avid paddler as well.

Why I Encourage Paddleboarding?
Paddleboarding is a fun activity with numerous advantages! Aside from enjoying the scenery, it provides a quick full-body workout. It strengthens the arm and back muscles, and many athletes include paddle boarding in their regular workouts. That said, paddleboarding should only be done when the weather is calm, whether in summer or winter. It is quite dangerous to paddle when it is windy or raining heavily.
If you can only SUP in summer, Maddle has a solution for that too! Well, their sister company does. Intrigued?
The team behind Maddle are wellness enthusiasts. So they came up with a solution so that you can still work out in the comfort of your home to stay fit. How?
Maddle Inflatable Paddle Board has a sister company, ASCEND. They sell cardio equipment for home gyms (for those windy or rainy days when you can’t go paddleboarding) and are a great way to keep active and encourage well-being after SUP season is over.
