Plans to build the 15' Bolsa Chica Stand-Up Paddleboard
My take on the stand-up paddleboard is rather different than the commercially available boards you see out there everywhere. Whereas the commercial boards are larger sized surfboards that can be used in calm water if needed, mine is designed more like a boat than a surfboard. I wanted to design one that had lots of glide and was easier to paddle than the commercial models. They're designed to be optimally stable and maneuverable when coming down a wave at high speed, while mine is designed to optimally slip through flatter water while maintaining the ability to maneuver when needed.
Like all of my boats, the Bolsa Chica is designed for the first time boatbuilder, working with construction grade materials available from any lumber yard or warehouse type home center. Just a few weekends work and not so many dollars, and this could be you - having stand-up paddleboard fun on any pond, lake, stream, bay or bayou. Included are the plans to build the paddle.
Free Study Plans for the Bolsa Chica Stand-Up Paddleboard
Our study plans are two of the actual construction drawings. They're not enough information for you to build the boat, but they do give you the overall boat size, shape and construction methods. This is a pdf file readable with the free Adobe Acrobat pdf file reader.

About Stand-Up Paddleboards
Though paddleboards have been around for a long time, only recently have stand-up paddleboards become popular. If you haven't tried them, they're a blast. They're also a good workout, so it makes sense that they'd be the latest rage, with health and fitness making a comeback these days. Looking a lot like a super-sized surfboard, most stand-up paddleboards are intended to be surfboards that can be paddled around in calm water as an aside. Mine operates more like a stand-up kayak.
