By Matt Mullins   Last updated: July 1, 2021

Where do you find Stand Up Paddleboard companies that keep it real by manufacturing in the USA? Here, I’ve researched and compiled a directory to American made SUP brands organized in an unbiased alphabetical order. The following SUP brands are those who truly value their employees and those who take environmental responsibility seriously by not selling out to exploit the poorest labor and lowest environmental standards.
