MADE IN AMERICA
King’s boards are made in our rapid response factory. We are located just 3 miles from the surf in Carlsbad (North San Diego) California. This is where we do the research and development that is reflected in the high-performance boards we build. We leverage the best team riders, personnel, equipment, materials and technologies to build the best performing, best constructed, and most beautiful boards in the world. We live by the motto “Performance without Compromise.” All our work is overseen by master designer and shaper, Dave Daum.

Best all around SUP for everyday!
These boards are AMAZING!!! If you enjoy riding a smaller SUP that is nimble and loose & fun this board is it! I have ridden the 8'2", 8' and 7'6" and everyone is just as fun! I can't say enough about King's quality and effort to strive for perfection every time! This board has handled head high reef brake to one foot rollers. If I had to choose one board to take on a trip it would be my Simmons, compact yet extremely versatile! Get on one and try it!
Most fun I have ever had on a SUP
I have ridden my Simmons SUP for a month now in conditions ranging from lightning fast and hollow waist high beach break to head high reef breaks and everything in between. I had my doubts that such a short board would be stable but all fears were gone on day one. In fact, after about thirty minutes of getting the feel of the board, day one was insane. I have been most impressed with the instant down the line speed and the tight turning radius that is seemingly built into the board. I’ll keep my Crossover for bigger surf but I have a feeling that this new board will see a lot of time in the water this Spring and Summer. I can honestly say that riding the Simmons SUP has been the most fun I have ever had on a Stand Up Paddleboard!
The Fastest Boards!
Hi Dave -- I was over in Maui a few months ago and watched the finish of the Wailea Molokini Challenge race. The locals told me that the King's race boards are the fastest right now! The 14’ King’s board won first place in the 14’ class. The board and paddler also finished third overall against unlimited boards paddled by many the biggest names in the paddling world.
My new board is ripping!
The new board is ripping and I'm so stoked. Kings Paddle Sports is helping to change the game once again, thanks Dave Daum, Rhonda Daum, and Buck Elsmore for believing in me and all that I'm trying to accomplish.
Love the 14' Downwind
I just want to thank you for sharing your boards and knowledge in Morro Bay last Saturday. I really liked your downwind board. I am telling everyone I know about how great, you, your company and your boards are.
