Provide the best possible combination of performance and durability for our products at a competitive price while keeping production in the USA.
While studying engineering at University of California Santa Barbara, Bounce composite founder James Hedgecock was first exposed to the concept of thermoplastic composite material. As an avid surfer, he recognized that there was a need for tough, high-performance boards and that this thermoplastic composite material could fill that need.
Several years later, after working as a product manager in manufacturing, James actualized his ideas and Bounce Composites® was born. With our team of highly experienced craftsmen, we have grown into exceptional manufacturers of stand up paddle boards. We also manufacture other large continuous fiber thermoplastic parts, including hollow and core-filled objects.
After working alongside each other for years, three families have united to rebrand Bounce SUP into Ridewell SUP Board Co. Each family behind Ridewell has all started and run their own small business with over 30+ combined years of experience. Their love for adventure, the outdoors, family and, of course, stand up paddle boarding fuel their passion to provide the SUP community with incredible boards and products.
HOW WE BUILD BETTER BOARDS
We design, engineer and manufacture seriously durable stand up paddleboards. While some companies tout “designed in California”, our entire process is 100% based in California. Our patented process allows us to create boards like no one else: thermoplastic composites are more durable, without sacrificing weight and performance. They have faster manufacturing cycle times, require less labor, AND have a process and product with a smaller environmental footprint.
