This Week's Insider Tip
Interview with a Supplier - Wappa Paddle Boards
By Tisha Hedges, Director of Operations of Worldwide Brands


We research thousands of Wholesale Suppliers every year to find top manufacturers, distributors and wholesalers. The genuine distributors can be difficult to find. But when we do, we verify their information, ensure they are the *actual* manufacturer or factory-authorized wholesaler for the products they carry. Then after an extensive Certification process we add them to our Directory of Certified Wholesalers.

During this process we meet some very interesting Suppliers & super friendly people! Recently we asked one of our listed Certified Wholesalers if they would be willing to do an interview and give our Members a closer look at what they do & offer and also offer any advice. 

We are proud to present this month's Featured Supplier!
Wappa Paddle Boards
Global leader for eco-friendly bamboo stand up paddle boards.

Founder of the company, Layne, provided us with the answers to our questions.
(for reference, any mention below of SUP or SUPs = Stand Up Paddle Board(s))

Can you give us a brief history lesson about Wappa Paddle Boards?
Wappa Paddle Boards began out of a need for a low cost, eco-friendly stand up paddle board that was good quality. The brand was established because of being unable to find a board that met my specifications for the SUP rental business I was opening. 

While testing prototypes in Mexico, people on the beach would often remark "su tablas son muy guapa" which translates to "Your boards are very beautiful". I wanted to honor the Latin roots of my brand, and Wappa was the perfect expression to do just that. 

The company was started in 2013 when product development occurred. In 2015, the company launched and started selling product to customers.

We would love to learn more about the eco-friendly aspect of your business. Can you tell us more?
We use many special materials to make us a leader in eco friendly paddle boards. Our cores are made from 25% recycled material. Our epoxy resins are plant based with a high bio content. These two factors meet EcoBoard certification standards.

We also use eco friendly packaging and our factory only uses renewable energy! 

in 2022, we plan on becoming even more eco friendly. We are switching from fiberglass fins to fins made from hemp fabric and plant based resins. 

How do your products differ from competitors?
In addition to offering the longest warranty in the industry, we use better quality materials. For example, the core strength of our SUPs are 50% stronger that the industry average. We build products to last. 

Do you have advice for retailers that are interested in selling your products?
Do not sell our SUPs on third party sites and marketplaces. These sites sell inferior paddle board products and having the Wappa brand compared to those products removes some shine from the Wappa brand. Our brand does best on websites dedicated to watersports or paddleboarding. 

"Working directly with the owner Layne Pennell, is a personal touch we just don’t get very often. His commitment to the environment produces not only an eco board but a very high quality piece of equipment. Wappa is my preferred SUP to paddle". - Tarah Coates, Owner, SurfSUP Eco Shop

"I am really impressed with the extent that you go to producing a board and it's complement that is "total quality"! - Tom Wolstenholme, Owner, The Paddler's Shop
