About Us

Experience the island. Live the island life. 

At Island Life Watersports, it's more than the need for speed. Here we offer the opportunity to see the island from a new perspective- the water. Whether it's above on a paddle board or thundercat, or below with a subwing or sublue, there is a whole world to explore. We're a company who designs, builds, and sells products to aid your experience in seeing the true island view. 

If we don't do it, we don't sell it.

Our story

In June of 2016, we started as a club of Islanders enjoying the thrills of Thundercat boat racing, talking shop and an occasional beverage. At first the shop was a place where we could store our race boats and make necessary repairs and modifications. Overtime our community grew and we decided to begin importing Thundercat boats and small tenders for the retail client. In September 2017 the Virgin Islands suffered the direct hit of two catastrophic category 5 hurricanes. Many people were impacted including our shop. Together as a community, we rebuilt. We expanded the store to not only offer boats, but rather a full line of water toys and merchandise to offer that “island life” experience that we live by. We are a company that truly loves the island life and we want to share that with all our friends.
