anyone know of any plans out there to build a ceder strip or sof SUP—thanks—phil
Not strip or SOF. Maybe you have seen this one out of plywood? http://www.clcboats.com/shop/boats/surf_boats/kaholo-stand-up-paddleboard.html?gclid=CM_Vxv6Zz6wCFUbf4AodLBexpg
this guy makes his own …
I believe there is a set of SUP pics in here with the waves skis.
These are really pretty skis and boards. He lives in Kona, Hawaii.

One thing to consider is if you are going to make an SUP you likely are going to cover most of the top with a BIG traction pad or wax it up so you can actually stand on it, so your nice handwork will be hidden most of the time.
Wood SUP and such
you may want to check out Swaylocks (dot com). It’s a surfboard builders forum that’s been around for years. SUPs and hollow wood construction are spoken there and you’ll also find some of the best glassing/omposites knowledge around.
Also. see, Paul Jenson http://www.hollowsurfboards.com/
And, Fiberglass supply http://www.fiberglasssupply.com/html/stand_up_paddleboard_kits.html
Check out Grain surfboards or Chesapeake Light Craft. They might get you started.

Kocho "Not bad "… compared to what ?
It just paddles fine …
I have not compared to other “long” boards so no idea where it falls on the scale of things comparable. I paddled one briefly in some wind chop and found it stable, tracked well, and surfed the small following “seas” very easy. Basically, it would go where pointed without feeling twitchy. It did not feel like a slug in the flat either…
Are close to a lot of competitive race boards.
