Evolve Paddillacs

stand up. stand out. evolve.

Having a home base on the east coast of the US, Evolve is influenced by its unique waterways and conditions. With plenty of places to explore in flat water, surf, and everything in between, our team’s experiences have been instrumental in the development of the boards. Starting with the goal that our boards would create the perfect marriage of affordability and performance, we crated a lineup that caters to the needs of paddlers from beginner to elite. Unlike other ‘pop-up’ paddleboard companies that might cut corners or offer limited options, Evolve takes pride in seeking quality materials while offering variety that helps each paddler find a board that fits their personality.
