Stand Up Paddleboards

 

...are       

       fun…

 

 

I’ve surfed since I was 16 and am now beyond mid 50, just some numbers…

One more number is 28…The years I’ve been married to my love, Pam…

Pam is not a surfer…

Pam is busily productive and exceeds here age to fitness ratio by an embarrassingly good ratio…

But since Pam doesn’t surf, we haven’t had that common water experience…

That is such old history now that we share stand up paddling…

Like newlyweds trying to get a quick one in, that’s what (among other things) our shared water activity is for us, an intense passion…

Passion is a strong, but accurate, word that expresses the feeling that stand up paddling is the single best athletic / outdoor activity that either of us has tried…

I’ll just say I’ve never felt as balanced physically than after a week of everyday stand up paddling…

And it's fun...

 

  

 

The boards I build are specifically designed for calmwater...

This design is about as simple as boards come...

The deck and bottom are flat except for a bit of nose and tail rocker...

There is no rail shaping on these boards...

A board typically is built from three sheets of inexpensive 1/8" plywood, with minimal glassing skill required...

The board pictured above has one of my signature wood strip decks...

Assembly time is less than 8 hours total and the exterior

glassing can be done in a week of before and after work hours...

The significant design diffeence that my boards have is their stability...

They are flat and wide where it's needed, behind the heels...

 

   

With the boards being hollow, there is room for storage of things you might want to have with you on board...

We each carry food, sunscreen, an inflatable life jacket, cameras and drinks...

The access hatches on our boards also have been modified to hold 12 oz. adult beverage bottles...

Nice for that sunset paddle...


    

It used to be, when I was paddling a conventional SUP the

comments I would get were something like "...that looks hard"...

Now it is more likely "...that looks fun...!!!..."
