I ordered four boards from VESL - Mike and Jeff were wonderful to work with. They patiently answered all of my questions and helped me make the best purchasing decisions for me and my 3 friends. The boards were shipped from CA to NH and everything was in perfect shape, carefully packaged and carefully labeled to indicate which board and paddle went with which of the 4 of us. The leashes were not in the shipment - a quick call to VESL and with no questions asked they were shipped and arrived within days. Excellent experience - would recommend to anyone looking for a positive experience and a quality product.

If you're looking to purchase a quality SUP at a great price you need to check out VESL. My wife and I had a great experience with Michael helping answer all questions and concerns with patient and always had a great attitude.

Extremely helpful, they know what you need better than you do....in a good way. Highly recommended (and nobody asked me to write this review)

What a cool place. Great boards, beautifully crafted and designed. A selection of accessories too. The staff was super cool.

Nice experience at this family owned company. They took their time thru the process as I'm a fairly new paddle boarder. Haven't been able to get out yet but nice home decor I guess for now until I can get on the water.

Mike and Jeff are top notch. Mike swapped a brand new board bag for me instead of a paddle as I did not need the paddle. This is my 4th Sup Surf board and by far my favorite. Having a 32" rocker makes the board super stable and maneuverable! I was able to get the 9'4" due to this and it weighs only 20 lbs. Great inventory in the store as well to look at and again customer service was amazing; they put the protective tape on for me, put the fin set in, and Mike even loaded my new board for me on top of my car .... I have a shoulder injury so having a light, well made board to carry makes all the difference. Thanks again for everything! -Janeen

Great!We’ve bought from vesl quite a few times and always love the quality- this time they ended up not having the rack we wanted, but were able to give great recommendations and steer us in the right direction! They are good, real people who care about their products, use what they sell, and take care of their customers.We will definitely be back :)

I really appreciated the care that went into my order. I ordered it online a d they called me to make sure that I knew what kind of board I was getting to make sure I was getting what I wanted and needed. Very happy with the customer service and the board itself!

Everyone loves a good deal. I purchased a V3SL touring SUP last year. It was a good deal for the board, paddle, bag and straps. Had a good season on it. This year, I was only able to take the board out twice, due to unrelated injuries and surgery. After a long paddle to the R10 buoy, I was ready to pack the board in the bag when I noticed a crack on the fin box. Water was leaking from it for several minutes. I had not banged it up, nor dropped it. It goes from garage to the beach and back. I called V3SL / Paddlesurf Warehouse and told my problem with the board. He asked for a pic then said bring it down for an assessment. The next day, I brought it. He told me the damage was from impact. I told him I did not drop it or beach it or bang it on the rocks as he had said would damage a fin box. Initially, he told me he could have the fin box repaired, but that it could take a couple of weeks and the paint would not be matched. I asked for a loaner board to which he replied he had none. I told him I bought from his shop because he is a local business. I could've easily gone to an online retailer. I also told him that when a mountain bike frame is cracked, the frame is replaced, no questions asked. To which he reminded me we weren't referring to mountain bikes. I walked off to my truck. I prepared myself for this. I sat inside and returned a couple of texts. Then he says he has another 11' board, but an all arounder and asks if I'm interested. He takes it out of packaging then tells me it's a swap. New fins attached, placed in bag and placed on my truck. I thanked him for working with me. Prepped for the worst, hoped for the best. I hold people and businesses in high regard when they make things right. It's always great when everything goes well for a product or service. Sometimes, it's when things go wrong that you find out how good a person or business really is. Thank you, for keeping me a satisfied customer. I will continue to refer people to their shop.

Thank you so much, Mike! We could not be more excited to try out our new boards this weekend. Incredible studio floor!!! I've never experienced a store so beautifully set for action water sports! An unexpected elevated shopping experience, accompanied by an even more exceptional and expert advice by the owner, Mike. We were first introduced to VESL boards at a friend's house a couple weeks ago. He has about 20 different boards because he entertains friends and family at the lake. The VESL boards immediately stand out, in my opinion, because they look like pieces of art. My guy located them here in OC, and right away, Mike was so patient with us, and all of our questions. He went over their website with all the various styles. I am still fairly new to paddle boarding and initially, couldn't decide between the inflatable or the standard boards. At that time, the only thing I debated was: which board do I buy, based on how and where it would be stored. Then, when we saw VESL, it was no longer a discussion- it has to be these boards, because not only do they seem to cosmetically perform better (from what I've seen and heard so far,) but they are, simply put, beautiful boards. Mike explained their boards would be in the following week. We order up two boards, and a week later, we got to pick them up today. Mike helped us load them up in the car, and ensured we had all the leads, fins, paddles and information on maintenance. Awesome help!! These boards are the easiest to carry, in my experience, compared to other boards I've tried. I'm only 5'1" and I can easily carry these down to my dock and several stairs. Yes, it's still a larger board than a surfboard, but it is so light in weight compared to even inflatables I've tried. I will not have any issues taking my board down to the lake on my own. We also purchased the clear protective tape/sticker ($40 /set for a board) per Mike's recommendations. He explained it protects the sides of our boards when our oars may hit the sides during paddling. All-around, phenomenal service! I highly recommend checking out this store if you're in the market for a standup paddle board. It's such a fun water sport that my family and I got into the last few years. I am thrilled to finally invest in my own board! Thank you again, Mike, for all of your help. We will be recommending your boards to all of our Southern California lake community friends and family!

I recently moved to Pacifica, California and wanted to get into Prone Paddleboarding. I wanted to get a high quality board fast, and found VESL's website after googling around. The purchase experience on their website was very easy, and the price for the board was great. In short order after I purchased the board online, I got a phone call from a VESL employee explaining how the shipping process would work. Not too long after that, the board showed up, in beautiful condition. I've taken it out three times already and its been great - though I'm a newbie at prone paddleboarding. Now that I've got a board I just need to find some good forums/communities of other prone boarders! In the meantime I'm enjoying taking the board out at Linda Mar Beach and learning by doing. Very happy with my purchase!

Had a really great experience with VESL! The customer service was fantastic. I recently moved from Santa Cruz, California to Wilmington, North Carolina for family. The waves are good here, but not as good as Cali that's for sure, so I needed a way to keep my paddle strength up. I ordered a VESL prone paddle board and it has been awesome! They shipped one cross-country and it arrived within a week of ordering. I can't say enough great things about VESL's prone paddle boards. The way it cuts through the water, it's so fast, and covers distance. I can do a mile or two in less than hour. I've also seen my surfing improve with the recent uptick of solid swell during hurricane season on the east coast. The prone from VESL is definitely helping me with my wave count! Highly recommend VESL for anyone interested in water sports.
