Who Runs This Joint Anyway?
We founded Lake Powell Paddleboards in Page, AZ in April of 2013. With backgrounds in surf, skate, snowboarding, and sailboat racing we have found our perfect sport: Stand Up Paddleboarding (SUP). We wanted to open our own shop at one the world’s best places for it~Lake Powell.
We are Jordan and Joe Lapekas. We are team “SUP the USA”. In 2012 we set off on a personal quest to paddle in all 50 states. Over 2 years and 120,000 miles later, we accomplished our goal! We have now paddled in all 50 states, from the Bayous of Louisiana to mountain lakes in Alaska and including parts of the Pacific, the Atlantic, and the Gulf of Mexico.
You can read more about our adventures on the SUP the USA page on this website and on our Facebook page- facebook.com/SUPtheUSA, or in the Summer 2015 issue of Stand Up Journal.
We were lucky enough to be featured in a commercial for WordPress.com! You can see it here- WordPress Commercial
Voted Viewer’s Choice for SUP Couple of the Year 2017 on SUPConnect! Thank you to everyone who voted for us!
These days you can find us at here with our staff at Lake Powell and at some of the races around the country including the Pacific Paddle Games, Carolina Cup and others. We travel across the country a few times a year exploring and meeting new friends along the way.
We fell in love with the sport and lifestyle of paddleboarding in 2009 and have brought this new sport to many people and places across the country. We decided it was time to settle down in a special place and set up a local paddleboard shop here in Arizona. Come and paddle with us and our awesome staff!
We have a staff member, Lynette who is fluent in Sign Language for the hearing impaired.
