Chesapeake Light Craft has paddleboard and longboard kits that I'm looking into building but i wonder if they not suited for stand up paddling. any ideas?

Glad you're getting out. I don't know this for a fact but suspect the CLC may lack sufficient transverse stability for standup. Why not give the folks a call and see what they say about it?
