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?

Another first, at least for Ft. Lauderdale. A rough three mile Standup chase into the Intracoastal Waterway starting and finishing at Coconuts by the Hall Of Fame. Nice turn out and good race. It is a part of the Hobie Standup Paddleboard Series organized by Liquid Surf & Sail, Tiki Beach and an army of volunteers. Lots more images to come but for now here's some ...



The start, finish off Coconuts and turning point in front of Lauderdale Yacht Club



Lined up and ready to go!




Paddling out hard from the start




Heading south in front of Bahia Mar, Pier 66 in the distance




Being in the lead is no picnic



But it can be scenic


A complete write up with more photos on the event to follow soon!
