Meet The FatStick Team
We are Team FatStick!
Here at FatStick we are passionate about Paddleboarding and Surfing.
We are proud to have a selection of dealers and team riders that test our products and make sure we are continually evolving and producing boards that give outstanding performance and great experiences every time.
Owner and creator of FatStick, Reuben began his life surfing and after suffering back problems and unable to prone surf any longer – he needed a route back into the water. This was the beginning of FatStick. Reuben lives for the brand he created and grew alone – it gives him such a buzz to see people out there, riding FatSticks.
Reubs is far from a one man band now, as FatStick has grown with team members, team riders, new countries and FatStick Family Members!
Elizabeth is one of our FatStick ambassadors who rides our 10ft Pink Panther SUP. Elizabeth’s passion is to encourage more ladies to get into the exciting sport of stand up paddle boarding. Elizabeth loves to go out for a relaxed paddle on those sunny days in addition to riding small mellow waves in Devon.
Andy is based at Hayling Island and gives input into the brand at all levels and is Reuben’s partner in crime.
Andy came into SUP later in life and has a true passion for the sport. He loves to help people get on the water.
Based on Hayling, Andy has a selection of boards for you to look at.
Sam is a stalwart of the team having been with FatStick almost from the very start. Sam has a great knowledge of SUP and has travelled with us to our factories to see the boards being built.
A keen and epic photographer, Sam is responsible for some of the awesome pictures we have. We’re very lucky to have Sam on the team – check out his Facebook and Insta Pages – Sam Rogers Photography

Hannah Louise Garber
Hannah previously owned her own SUP brand which she closed in order to move to the amazing island of Mallorca. She left the UK for a new adventure taking only her 2 dogs and a few boards.
She has linked up with FatStick Spain and is a great ambassador for FatStick offering lessons, board hire and sales…in fact, there’s not much she doesn’t do when it comes to SUP.
If you’re ever over in Mallorca – get in touch with Hannah! She’ll get you out there!
Our guy in Ireland, Dave Ludgate is a passionate conservationist. We first met Dave online whilst chatting to him about a SUP that can be used for Coastal and River Cleans around his home city of Cork.
Dave paddles a variety of boards, the large fishing board, a rigid tourer and a Wave Fish.
An all round great guy who has a genuine passion for SUP and all it can bring.
