SUP prototype build

Post by tech_support »

We started assembly of our first test SUP board. Not a lot to show right now, but here are some shots of the puzzle joints we are using. For this first one we are using scrap wood, next one will be the expensive stuff :)

I have been thinking about a paddleboard for a little shore fishing on a couple of small lakes. Can't wait to see the finished product.

He's planning on running it on the frozen Platte River this Feburary. :lol: Going to have to use some sharpened ski poles to get it going.

8) Plenty of lakes up here, just ask all the Colorado folks who run up here every weekend to ruin our pristine empty spaces :lol: :lol: :lol:

Seriously though while I could use them on the lakes up here it's irrelevent as I'm moving back to GA this fall 8)

I want one for running the shoreline of lakes back in Arkansas after I move back this spring.

OK, I am ready to see some more work
