About Us


30a SUP – a division of Panama City Beach SUP, LLC is a local, family owned, small business. We are a husband and wife team that have three little minions that keep us very busy, Alexis, Connor, and Ascher. All of us are nature and beach lovers but the “surfer dude” of the family (and most likely the one who will be delivering the boards and instructing you) is Chris.


Chris grew up in and on the water and is a lifelong swimmer, surfer, fisherman and waterman. Of all the places on the planet, the water is where he is most comfortable. He’s surfed and free-dove all over the East Coast of the US as well as foreign countries like Costa Rica and the Bahamas. Nothing makes him happier than passing on his love of Mother Ocean and knowledge to others, especially kids, since surfing and paddleboarding is something that can be done for a lifetime!


Laura is the other half of the team and is the creative talent and “artist.” Laura is an independent professional beach photographer with a thriving business of her own. She does a lot of work in the various 30a beach towns and fell in love with the area. If you’re wanting some professional photos of your paddleboard adventure or just looking to capture some of your family beach vacation, check out Laura’s work HERE and give her a call!


It is our goal here at 30a SUP to provide you with the best customer service and maximum amount of fun during your time here visiting our beautiful beaches.  Give us a call or shoot us an email today to schedule your Gulf Coast adventure!
