  • From what I've heard, once you pass the 10' mark, it becomes more an issue of width, not length.  12' should be fine for anyone if it's like 30" wide.

  • wouldn't the SUP board be at least 10' long? How would there be enough foam left over for a second board?

    The foam block is 12" thick.  Cut laterally, that would yield two blocks 6" thick.  The question then is, can the 6" thick block yield the desired rocker.  I don't know the answer to that question, but if Mark says it is so, then it is so.

  • aha. got it. even if the secondary block is reduced to 4" thick, you could still cut a pair of fish from it, presumably.

  • You guys should make a 10' x 28 x 4 1/2 but make it a giant double bumb quad fish. It would give the beast a little more maneuvarablility with the bumps. I don't know what everyone weighs but 4 1/2 inches seems pretty adequate.

  • From what I have read the Clark 12' 3" blank has good rocker for an SUP. Can't figure out how to get the image off the p.d.f so I can post it.

  • Most of the tandem/SUP boards are in the 4.5" - 5" thick range, and with 13" thick blank you should get two boards out of it. There isn't much rocker you need, just the nose lift is important.

    There is a GREAT article here by this old bloke who just started surfing after he retired....kinda goes to show that retirement isn't a dead end like some people tend to think....I just wished I was one of the lucky ones to retire early...this guy has a great life....

  • Mike Becker got back to me. He has EPS copies of the Clark 12' 8" that he sells for $250. We would have to pick it up tho'. I think he is out near Riverhead.
