Stand-Up Paddle Boards based in Telluride
SOL Paddle Boards was founded by Johnny Lombino who became passionate about the sport during his trip to Brazil in spring of 2011. After years of research, he kicked off his inflatable stand-up paddle board company upon his return, and since then SOL has been known by many due to its durability and lively designs. In 2014, Richie Parkhill, another sports enthusiast, joined the company as a co-owner.
SOL makes use of some advanced technologies in making their inflatable stand-up paddle boards. SOL uses Special PVC, which makes their boards more durable without losing its flexibility. They also attach D-Rings to the boards using their heavy-duty nylon webbing, which prevents any chance of ripping in the material. Lastly, their Click Fin System makes it easy to attach and detach the fins from their inflatable boards.
Below are some of SOL’s best-selling inflatable boards:
- SOLshine: measures 9’6″ x 36″ x 6″ and features a 6” front rocker and 3” rear rocker.
- SOLtrain: measures 10’7″ x 34″ x 6″ and is a good all-around board good for both beginners and advanced paddlers.
- SOLsombrero: measures 11’4″ x 39″ x 8″ and is the perfect choice for fishing or tandem paddling due to its width.
