Our Story

Stand Up Surf Shop was born out of passion. Founder Mike Galvin had always loved his water sports, and once he discovered stand up paddle boarding, he was hooked. Mike wanted a good excuse to immerse himself in the sport and share the stoke. So he set up the first shop to focus solely on SUP's in WA. And he surrounded himself with a 'family' that are passionate about the sport as himself.
