Goat-boater was a term used in early surf days in a more derogatory sense to poke fun at those who chose to surf via surf ski or sea kayak.  After spending some time traveling the world and learning about the art of surfing I found the name goat-boater quite funny.  The sport of surfing has grown and expanded into many forms over the years.  Although, a few of those expansions have been around for a long time they are becoming more popular world-wide and within each of our communities.  A few of those expansions include kayaking, wake surfing and SUP (stand-up paddleboard).  In an effort to turn my passion for surfing into a life-long adventure I’ve established “The Goat Boater.”

  If you are considering purchasing a board or renting one for awhile, we can help.   If you are hoping to meet friends who love to paddle, get involved with community service projects and/or take part in weekly paddle excursions and fitness classes, then this is a good site to book mark.  Our goal at The Goat Boater is to provide a fun, thriving, inviting fitness environment that stimulates senses, unleashes passions and preserves health.  We would like our passion for SUP to infuse your spirit!  We are excited to invite you to come grow with us!
