These days when stand-up-paddling is mentioned in passing, our minds immediately drift off to someone attempting to catch waves in an area that’s overly crowded with surfers and undersized in wave height. And it’s unfortunate Stand-Up Paddleboarding catches this wrap, though Wilson & Willy’s looks to remedy this notion with this SUP Board and Paddle set.
Built out of western red cedar, aspen, and cherry each SUP board is coated in fiberglass and built for flat water cruising. It’s all possible thanks to the good people at Sanborn Canoe and Shoreboards, who both hand-build and paint each meticulously-carved paddle board. Each board measures 10’6” x 30” x 4.75” with a weight limit of 240 pounds. They’re made to order in Minnesota and serve as a perfect option for exploring the fall season in the wilderness. Also available is a hand-painted paddle as well. And since they’re made from scratch, orders take about 2 months to fulfill. Available exclusively through Wilson & Willy’s. Prices start at $2,950.
