It’s been said that some of the greatest stand up paddle (SUP) and surfboards ever designed were conceived in the waters off the coasts of California and Florida by people who live and breath the sport.
And, so it is with N2 Board Sports. Our company was formed when Ryan Peña, a native of the surf culture in Encinitas, California met native Floridian surfing guru Clayton Dunn while paddle boarding off beautiful Delray Beach in 2012.
The duo became fast friends after spending endless hours together on the water, paddle boarding and surfing in the electric blue waters off Florida’s Gold Coast.
It did not take too many sessions on the boards of the day for them to realize the sticks they were riding were poorly designed, manufactured and overall well…..boring!
After another day of riding their uninspired paddle boards, Ryan and Clayton were grabbing some grub while leaning against the northern most lifeguard tower on Delray Beach, when they decided the time had come to bring some better made boards onto the beach. The pair agreed right then and there to become partners in a venture whose sole mission statement would be to design and build some of the best boards in the business. In between bites of their burritos, Ryan happened to look up and spotted the tower name painted on the side of the colorful lifeguard tower and the new company had its name, North 2 Boards!
Our company wide commitment has never waivered from our genesis to where we are today. We believe that we are building some of the best designed and well- made boards on the water.
Each N2 Board is designed to be as durable as it is beautiful and deliver a happy and healthy lifestyle for everyone.
Let us get you on the water today!
