In addition to the 14.5 foot cedar strip/epoxy Expedition SUP design and the various models that have been developed based on that hull we are designing a 12.5 foot model, the plan is to offer a similar series of model options for the 12.5 as we do for the 14.5. These will only be available as kits, the construction method for the structure does not lend itself to being cut by hand, and CNC cutting greatly eases the building process. Kits contain in addition to the parts required for the build a CNC cut mold system. Kit contents can range from the CNC cut parts for the mold and structure to complete kits that contain all the pieces required to build the model you choose.

We have written an addendum to the plans for those who may wish to add a cedar strip deck in place of the plywood deck that is included in a standard kit. Changing the deck will result in a increase in the weight of the board, those wishing to compromise between weight gain and the ability to customize their SUP may wish to opt for just changing the fore deck to cedar.

Expedition/Explorer/Excursion 14.5

 The three Sup's listed above are all based on the same hull, the differences are in  the deck is layout. There can be some further variation of each model caused by the type of fin chosen. Because of this please download a study plan to investigate your options, as the choices made influence the contents of the kits and it  ranges from difficult to impossible to build another version of the SUP from a kit designed for a different model. Plans are nearing completion and once we have the various versions of the board priced we will be able to make these available. If you are interested in learning more the study plan is now available for download from the study plans page.
