|The " 9ft. 6in. Stu's Sup" is
a short surf SUP that was
designed for people that want a
shorter, more agile SUP. The
Stu is meant to be an open
drops and hard turns like a
surfboard but give the wide
stability of an SUP.
9’ 6” SUP
Width – 30 5/8 in.
Nose –18 5/8 in.
Tail – 20 in.
Thickness – 4 3/4 in.
The new rib design lets you
build the rails two different ways
(built up solid rails or wood strip
hollow rails) for even lighter
The Stu has a fair amount of
nose and tail rocker which make
it far more suited to ocean
paddling and surfing than to flat
water speed paddling.
Finished pictures are on the
way, but the catalog illustration
tells the story.
Robin Ebenstreit, owner of European Surf
Supply in Switzerland, built this Stu's
Surf SUP. Robin actually got us going
on the idea of making a shorter SUP. He
paddles in on the local lakes and takes it
on surfing trips throughout Europe. Robin
uses mostly paulowina wood and can
supply it to builders throughout Europe.

|ALL EXPORT KITS ARE SHIPPED USING
US PRIORITY MAIL AND USUALLY
DELIVERED IN 6 TO 10 BUSINESS DAYS
An export kit is the same as a regular domestic kit except the ribs
and spar sections are cut from the backing material so they fit a
1-meter long package that can be sent anywhere in the world.
The cuts are made at non-critical spots and the pieces are coded so
that matching the pieces is easy. Also included is some extra wood
to reinforce the joints. The manual shows exactly how to do it and its
emailed as soon as the order is processed so you can start planning
while the kit is on its way.
The basic kits consist of the ribs and spar pieces that make up the
surfboard frame. It also includes a full instruction manual that covers
every step of the build in detail. The PDF manual is emailed to you
when you order.
You will need wood for the outside planking as well as glue,
fiberglass and shop supplies like sandpaper. You can buy or build a
fin to be glassed on or mounted in a fin box.
The kit is delivered
"model airplane" style.
You punch out the
ribs and assemble the
pieces into a frame
like the one shown
|Three more questions
we get a lot......
Question: "Do I get everything I need to
build a board in the kit?"
Answer: In the basic kit - no, in the
complete kit - yes. The basic kit is the
frame and instructions and you'll need to
buy wood, fiberglass, a fin, etc. locally.
We put all that stuff into the complete kit.
Plus the wood in the complete kit is balsa
and paulownia so the board will be light.
You'll just need glue and tools.
Question: "How do I know what size board
Answer: You pick the board size and
shape the same way you'd pick a foam
board. They float and perform the same.
Question: "What if I need some advice or
have questions during the build?"
Answer: The Ebook that comes with the
kit will take you step by step through the
build - its got tons of photos and info. Also
you can contact us either by phone or
