About Our Guest:

Doug Pate co-founded ISLE with his best friend, Marc Miller. Doug and Marc share a lifelong passion for the ocean and the sports that surround it. In their first four years of business, they sold surfboards online. At the time, there was no direct-to-consumer surfboard company, and by default, they became the industry’s pioneers. In 2008, they shifted their focus from surfboards to stand up paddle boards as a way to help more people get on the water across the country.
