Who we are...
A Letter from the Owners:
Zachary Meeks and Fallon Ellender
Calypso Paddle Company was brought forward as a spin off of Calypso’s Bayou Paddleboarding company in 2014 the service company that we offer guided excursions (Cocodrie, Grand Isle & Bayou Lafourche), SUP Yoga classes at local pools and also rentals on kayaks and paddleboards.
As paddleboard and kayak/fishing enthusiast we came across problems with finding accessories that we wanted. We found our self-traveling to New Orleans or even Florida for such units and/or accessories. The Bayou region has been over due for such a place. It only seems right with our waterways a sportsman’s dream but also to explore and be a tourist in our own backyard.
The service company started as a mobile unit working a traveling from locations all over gulf coast. Weekend excursions in Grand Isle to becoming part of weeklong retreats in Florida and Mississippi we had it covered. Bringing Paddleboarding to the bayou was surely an adventure. After five years my business partner and I decided to give South Louisiana area a piece of what makes us happy; nature, fishing and the love of paddle sports. We are beyond excited to share this with the bayou communities here. We plan to extend our service and retail area to all aspects of the paddle sport world.
The best site is seeing our customers/clients happy whether it is trying something new (Paddleboarding) or out having fun with their family fishing in their new rigs. We want everyone to have a chance to experience what we can offer here at Calypso Paddle Co/Calypsos Bayou SUP. Get out and explore what Louisiana has to offer, we are truly lucky to live in such a place.
Our vision for our company is to Bring people together for the pure enjoyment of disconnecting from the world, by being in nature as a community, but importantly having fun while doing it!
–Calypso Paddle Co.
Spreading happiness one paddle at a time.
