Hi there,

Stand Up Paddling Comes to Las Vegas area thanks to the Joy Family

I’m Braly Joy, the co-founder of 9th Island SUP.

That’s my wife and daughters over to the right.

Together we started the first Premium Stand Up Paddle Board shop in Clark County. 

Let me tell you a little bit about why we would start a SUP Shop in the middle of the desert.

A few years ago a business opportunity brought me and my family to Las Vegas. Prior to moving to Vegas, I worked SIC Maui’s Marketing Director and Brand Manager.SIC is one of the industry’s premium stand up paddle board manufacturers.


When the opportuntiy in Vegas came up, I told my wife we’d need to check out the paddling scene.  

It shocked me that  was there wasn’t a larger paddling community out near Lake Mead for two reasons. 

1. Las Vegas is known as the 9th Island. Many Hawaiians vacation to Vegas on a yearly basis, and it’s estimated that nearly 200,000 Hawaiians live in the Las Vegas area.

2. There are sevearl World Class Paddling Destinations within a 1-2 hour drive from The Strip. The wind picks up over Lake Mohave and creates a Downwind Run that is as good as any downwinder in the world. We experience conditions for every paddling discipline and skill level.

Everyone from first time paddler to seasoned pro will enjoy time on the water in our back yard. 

So when we pulled the trigger to move to Las Vegas we did it with a vision to bring the SUP culture and lifestyle to the desert.

We visit Hawaii a few times a year, and have lived there on and off all of our adult lives, which is why we decided to name our Paddle Board Shop 9th Island SUP.

Everybody involved with 9th Island SUP has a true passion for paddling and living a healthy lifestyle and we all want to share that passion with others.

At 9th Island SUP we offer sales, lessons, rentals, tours and a HydroFIT SUP Fitness & Yoga program.

We are THE local experts on everything SUP and are looking to bring recognition to the sport in the Las Vegas & Boulder City areas for people of all ages to enjoy.

We pride ourselves on carrying only high quality, top brand board manufacturers and work closely with each customer to find the right board for them.

Our owners are all WPA (World Paddle Association) certified instructors and offer lessons to the novice or paddlers looking to truly learn SUP technique and efficiency.

We want you to become a part of our SUP Ohana (family).

Mahalo & a hui hou (thank you & see you soon)
