Denver’s original SUP store

Originally established by John and Nancy Bridenbaugh in 2012 on Main Street in historic downtown Littleton, Altitude Paddleboards was the first SUP-dedicated retailer to open in Colorado. JB and Nancy sold the business to Willi and Daneille Taylor in July of 2019, and we are excited to continue serving the front range paddling community! We have recently moved to our new, expanded location in Englewood, click here for directions and info.

Our shop is close to premier South Metro Denver lake and river SUP destinations, including Chatfield State Park, River Run Park (RRP) whitewater park on the Platte, Bear Creek Lake Park, Soda Lakes, and the South Platte River.

We carry both inflatable and epoxy (hard) boards covering river surfing, river SUP, and flatwater paddling. Inflatable paddleboards from Hala, Badfish, SOL, and Red. Our epoxy boards include the brands Boardworks, NSP, and Global Surf Industries. We also carry a full line of accessories including paddles, life vests (PFDs), leashes, river helmets, shin and knee pads for the river, repair products, fins, straps and rack pads, wetsuits, board bags and more.

We were also the first OneWheel retailer in Colorado, and have XRs, Pints and accessories in stock! We are also excited to welcome Carver Skateboards – the original surfskate since 1996.
