Boardworks was born in California in the 90s, making surf and stand-up paddleboards for the locals, and it grew from there. As they became a bigger national presence, they were added to the Confluence Outdoors brands (Wilderness Systems, Dagger, etc.). Why do we carry them? Since we did so before they went over to Confluence, there was no reason to change. Great designs, high quality, and good people to work with. They are always experimenting with new materials to make their boards more durable and improve performance. You can't really go wrong with a Boardworks board.
