Talking with jscottk about the SUP board.

  • jscottk brought up the idea of making a stand up paddle board and I thought it might be fun to make it a group effort. I think there are a bunch of people here that would like to try the SUP thing but don't want to spend the money to buy the equipment only to find out it is not for them.

    I thought I would bring it up for discussion here. This is what we talked about:

    1). Pool our money and buy stuff (block of 2lb EPS, fiberglass cloth and epoxy).
    2). I think jscottk said he would provide storage for the board and maybe space to shape it in.
    3). We can all work on ideas for rocker and outline and I would make the templates.
    4). I can provide the hotwire cutter.
    5). We can ask Supreme if he wants to mow the foam.
    6). We can all get involved in the glassing. (def a two man job and prolly others needed for moral support, it will be a monster).

    Anyone in?

  • Here is the basic idea
    We all chip in money for materials
    We agree on a size, and a shape
    I can store it and give a key to everyone.
    And we drag it down to the beach on flat days and run over kooks..

  • how much is a block of foam vs a blank from mike becker?  have you explored that option because he cuts his own 2.0 density blanks.

    Good point, has anyone ordered an EPS blank from him?

  • Ok I looked into the cost of foam and here is the thing. Most places have a minimum order of $250 and then it looks like $85 delivery. The piece of foam we would get for $250 would be 12" x 28" x 13', that is enough to make the board and I would be interested in buying a piece of the foam to make a board and there may even be enough left over for another board.

    i guess the next thing to do is get a price from Mike Becker.

    P.S. we are prolly looking at $100 in resin and $100 in cloth as well.
