Why stand-up paddleboards, some of you may ask? Well, the simple answer is that when there are waves we surf, body surf and bellyboard; when there aren’t any waves we paddleboard, swim and dive. We already make bodysurfing handplanes and traditional bellyboards, and adding SUPs to our range rounds out our offering. It’s another way of enjoying the water. Our workshop is on the north Cornish coast, but this is the thin part of the peninsula and the south coast is less than half an hour away. When we can’t surf on the north coast there are plenty of opportunities to paddle on the south coast with its calm beaches and bays, and extensive estuary and river systems. These boards open up the possibility of long-distance trips along inaccessible stretches of coast, fishing forays, and overnight camping missions for us – and now for you too. That, and we’ve made a few custom SUPs in the past for customers and had enough enquiries now for us to consider making them more than bespoke one-off items.
