About Riviera Paddleboards

Riviera Paddleboards are always getting better. 

This is what Riviera Paddleboards says about their unquie process. 

We pride ourselves on improving everything we build. Every SUP session we evaluate and determine what new materials, construction and design technologies will evolve our products to the next level. We use the technology that is best for the application and, in doing so; we create products that make paddle boarding more enjoyable for all of us.


We are driven to make the highest quality SUP’s in the world for ourselves and our customers. Whether it's a touring, racing or surfing specific SUP we take extra care in testing and refining our designs with the goal to make the fastest, lightest, strongest, or most high performance SUP’s in the world. Riviera Shaper Taylor Rambo with our team of experience paddlers experiment and refine our shapes all year and have been doing so for nearly 10 years. We are confident that our SUP surf and raceboard models are the highest performance SUP’s on the market.


We take time to get things right. Our name is on the line, so we follow development and testing procedures for all our products. We took 2 years to develop a honed RP-Raceboard that we felt was ready to be introduced into the race community. Our SUP development never stems from an outside source, and it never stops.  We take our time designing, building, and testing everything here in our San Clemente, Ca. headquarters and out on the water where we craft every detail into what makes our brand.

 We are continuously experimenting with new ideas and feedback that constantly flow into Riviera from pro riders, employees, dealers and customers. Oftentimes these experiments turn into cutting-edge products that are a first for the SUP market, a product series to fill a void in the industry, or simply something fun that we enjoy paddling.

Riviera Innovation:


Riviera's mission is not only to provide the highest quality boards around the world, but also to minimize material waste. Typically 5 SUP boards are cut from 1 large EPS foam block, 33% of which becomes boards while 67% becomes scrap. Riviera's ECO Molded Blanks are molded leaving little to no waste.  This is a technique that we came up with and are proud to offer SUP's that use less material in manufacturing. Our ECO Molded Blanks are much stronger than traditional shaped blanks and we can duplicate our desired shapes consistently with 100% accuracy.
