SUP Surfing


We had a little swell come through last week and instead of battling it out with the 6 longboarders at the well known local surf spot I opted to give SUP surfing a try at a nice lonely spot where I had 3 breaks of my choosing...... There may be something to the SUP surfing thing......

Just in- New products- Surfboard Leashes and SUP Pads

We just got in a new selection of surfboard and SUP leashes as well as SUP traction pads and COLD water wax (Sticky Bumps)
Leashes are 6' Comp, 6', 7', 8', and 9' regular, and 10' SUP.


The SUP pad is a nine piece pad so you can size it up or down to fit the deck of your board. It has a diamond cut traction pattern and uses quality 3M adhesive.

Surfboard/Paddleboard Building Demo Pictures

Here are some pictures from May's demo:
We did a green acid splash bottom lam that was a lot of fun to do.  The crew was a little concerned when I told them what color I wanted to do but they were pleasantly surprised. 

We also did pinstriping, black outside line, white inside.

Wetting out the bottom

Concentration, no pressure, just a few people watching....

Dual cure UV & MEKP, the UV locks things in place and speeds up the process (especially when doing a demo) the MEKP insures that opaque colored resins cure fully.

Pinlining
Moment of truth......

The demo was a lot of fun, we also went over shaping and glossed the top of another board.   Check out our Scuttlebutt page for dates and times of our other demos
