about us

Don’t just let life happen to you. Go beyond what is expected and live a good story.
— Matt Nienow (Founder GS)

Good Story Paddle Boards was born out of a desire to deepen our connection with the natural world and with ourselves. Time and time again we have found the healing and transformative power of water is most available to anyone willing to venture out with only the power of one’s own body.  We have paddled thousands of miles by canoe, most often in aluminum and plastic boats, and the magic of the natural world lives on in spite of the craft. When we began building wooden watercraft, we found the magic of the experience was doubled. 




Our boards are artfully designed for the ideal marriage of form and function, featuring the use environmentally friendly materials and construction methods that ensure a much longer life than mainstream foam/fiberglass SUPs and surfboards. Additionally, each board carries a pocketable phrase or bit of verse to guide your time on the water. 

Don’t just let life happen to you. Get after it. Go beyond what is expected and live a good story.
