About Stand on Liquid
Designed and operated out of Bend, Oregon for the last twelve years -- we are constantly inspired by the beauty and adventure surround us. We like to play here, so we design boards to fit your next adventure. The stunning waters of the Cascade Lakes and surrounding rivers provide the perfect backdrop for our paddle board obsession. We LOVE where we live, and our boards reflect that.
We excel in
We thrive on making happy customers, which is why we LOVE spending time with anyone interested in a Stand on Liquid board. We’ve been pairing customers with the perfect board for years, so we will happily answer any questions that you may have. When we're not working with customers to find the perfect board, we love to spend our free time on the local rivers and lakes, as well as the cold waters of the Oregon coast (or the warm waters of Punta Mita, Mexico and Hawaii’s Kohala Coast). By doing so, we believe we've created a dynamic SUP development lab, obsessed with learning what resonates with customers.
We've got the best
With the largest inventory of rigid and inflatable paddle boards and board accessories on the West Coast, finding the right board will be a breezse. We design and sell both Stand on Liquid and Latitude 44 SUP collections, as well as distribute dozens of other trusted board and accessory brands.
We can't wait to meet you
My work life centers around finding the perfect board for each paddler; it's an awesome responsibility and a lot of fun. My non-work life generally consists of driving kids from this side of town to the other, and in between, biking, skating, paddling, and hiking with our Sheepadoodle, Max.
Life revolves around my kids with my wife and I trying to keep up with all their activities and sports. Summers are about adventures, fun on the water, discovering new places and going back to favorites. Yep, the classic Bend lifestyle we all moved here for. See you on the lake, river, beach, and mountain!
I oversee production, manage the SonL shop crew, and pair paddlers up with gear that fits their paddling style. I am a Bend, OR native and have been at SonL since 2011. When I’m away from the shop, I enjoy outside activities; camping, running, paddling, and anything that has to do with sitting around a bon-fire.
Whether I’m at the shop or running around with my three awesome kids my moto is to play for life! Finding the right gear for any level of outdoor adventure brings me excitement and satisfaction knowing that anyone can get out there to enjoy the great outdoors. When I'm not at work you can find me outside peddling, paddling, boarding, camping, or teaching yoga.
