Seats on SUP boards?...
Posted by: tapelgan on May-13-13 12:17 AM (EST)
...I'm planning to give SUP a try.
I'm coming around 3rd base (78 y.o.), and the old bod stiffens easily if kept in one position too long.
That's the main reason I stopped kayaking years ago, and I'm not even using my solo canoe any more. The standing position and full-body activity of SUP might be just the ticket.
However, I might want to sit down, even briefly, once in a while. Sitting on the deck isn't an option, since getting up again might be impossible.
Does anyone make, or has anyone on here invented, a small seat/stool that could be added to a SUP? Probably needs to be 14" high m/l.
My apologies if this topic has already been exhausted here, but I couldn't find relevant info.
Or I could just get a rocking chair and a bigger TV.

Good for you for trying something new. My mom is 72 and just started SUPping last year. She loves it. SUP is a GREAT activity for developing strength and balance.

Or any of its ilk will work fine. Tie in a small cooler or filled drybag to font tied downs and that'll provide footbraces. For the fun of it, bring a golf umbrella as a down wind sail.
I am thinking of an offbeat race event|

Hopefully wont be too overpriced so i can order a couple. (husband needs a knee replacement so less paddling time on his feet with full weight would be great!)

Venture Glide seat looks very good! Hope you sell a bunch as I hear people complain all the time about the need to sit for awhile.

If not surfing use canoe for SUP!|

To get your seat back, just use a canoe for SUP. That is, if you're not surfing or out in the wind. On protected waters, Canoe-SUP is the way to go. Enjoy the best of all worlds: standing, sitting, cargo, passengers, etc.
I have used the Cabelas universal |

I was thinking about this myself and I had the idea of gluing on a foam pedestal thats used in whitewater canoes. You would kneel on this so it should be easy to use without having to move your feet much. I decided just too use my canoe with a SUP Paddle and it works great. I use a Wenonah encounter which is very stable and turns easily. I stood up on it almost the entire 8 mile run on Juniper springs which is rated one of the difficult rivers to paddle. The canoe keeps me dry offers more protection from alligators and gives me a seat to sit on when I get tired. The downfall of using a canoe however is if you should capsize its much more difficult to rescue yourself.

Hi, I have been using the VentureGlide as a prototype now for about 3 years, I love it , It will be launched in Late July, 2014 and it is actually the Outrigger Canoe Paddle position on a SUP! and you can Change paddle positions from Standup to either position in just 3 seconds without loss of Paddle torque or Paddle cadence. Go to www.ventureglide.com Website is now going thru a change to get ready for the Launch, Bruce

Go here http://www.paddling.net/standup/boards.html and click on Saturn Inflatable SUPs and Sea Eagle Inflatable Boats both of which make boards with strap on seats. You can probably find rigid versions as well. I am just now checking into SUP and thinking of starting with the SOT330. Being able to keep an inflatable SUP/kayak in the truck wherever I go sounds like a plan.
