DIY touring SUP
Posted by: Norwolf on Feb-20-14 8:47 PM (EST)
I plan to build my own touring SUP by "enhancing" a wind surfer board. The board is made of glass, 12' by 30 ". I plan to add 4" to the width, 3' to the length, 2" to thickness. I will attach a wood frame to the wind surfer board and marine plywood and glass it -- and i will try to follow the same lines as the wind surfer board.
Will this work? Or not. And why not?

That sounds like it will be extraordinarily heavy.

The other thread here about using a canoe as a SUP, your thread for using a surf board to DIY a SUP, and the fact that I have a stripped fiberglass shell of a canoe waiting for gunwales and some fiberglassing taking real estate in my backyard for 2 years now, just gave me an idea: remove 10" or so of the canoe sidewalls down from the gunwales, add some stringers along the length of the hull, get some pink construction foam to shape a deck and glass over it.
