I created this wiki style set of building tutorials for customers building my paddleboard kits and plans but anyone is free to use them. The tutorials are listed in the order they are completed with links to helpful videos, tools and shop made jigs I use when building boards. If you are using the tutorials to build a wood surfboard simply skip the parts about a SUP handle and the deck reinforcements.
Some of my customers build their boards by ‘stripping’ the internal frame the way strip canoes are built. If you are going to use this technique, I recommend reading a book like Canoecraft or The Strip-Built Sea Kayak to supplement these tutorials. The structural result with the ‘stripping’ technique is the same with the main difference being cosmetic.
If you are building one of my paddleboard kits or using my plans and need clarification on anything, please contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
