Our mission

is to offer a welcoming approach to adventure that makes it easy for everyone to enjoy the mountains. We want everyone who does business with us to feel like an ambassador for Wheelies and Waves and a local. We look forward to offering the best quality equipment to inspire confidence in people's ability to achieve memories they didn't know were possible, here on the Western Slope and beyond.

Our goal

is to share our passion for the outdoors. The owners and employees of Wheelies and Waves are all general outdoor enthusiasts and adventure seekers. We bring our first-hand knowledge about the sport, equipment and local access to you in a welcoming and friendly environment.

We were created

out of a passion for being outside. Courtney Burton was born and raised in Ocean City, Maryland, right near the beach. After meeting her husband, Braden Burton, the two decided to chase some adventure and relocate to Crested Butte, Colorado for a winter. After a few years in the mountains, it was clear Courtney missed being close to the ocean. With a love of everything warm and water sports related and a desire to live in this beautiful mountain town, CB SUP (Courtney and Braden Stand Up Paddle) was born in 2015 to make it easier for people to find their beach in this high mountain paradise. As we continue to expand, we realize we have soo much more to offer then just paddleboards, thats why we rebranded to Wheelies and Waves Adventure Company. Still based on Braden (wheelies) and Courtney’s (waves) need for adventure, the goal is still the same. We are constantly working on spreading our conscious business efforts across the country and globe to be able to help more people enjoy the outdoors.
