Project Stand Up

I’m really excited about my new project to be released late 2010! I’ve been working with Randy French, who owns Surftech in Santa Cruz, on my stand up paddle board line. If you aren’t familiar with the sport, it’s where you have a thicker, wider, longer board that can support you standing with your feet parallel to each other. You have one long paddle to get you moving forward. You can surf with SUP boards or just cruise around. I attached some photos so you can see what I’m talking about.

It’s a great way to get out in the ocean even if the waves are flat. Or like my sister, who is scared of waves but loves the ocean, she can be out there just checking out the dolphins and seals.

The boards I’m designing are great for women because a lot of the SUP boards are super heavy and really difficult to carry, so Randy and I worked on making it super light and built for a woman’s body. I’ll keep you posted and show you the prototype soon! Excited for summer!

Much love,

    This looks like a really great project to customize SUP boards for women by a highly respected company– very anxious to see the prototype. SUP boards can be used on lakes and ponds if the ocean is not available and allows people to get into the water and enjoy the ocean when it’s flat (and get some real exercise). I hope this project takes off! Can’t wait for summer.

    Sounds like you can just about do anything you set your mind to.
    Wish I could surf up here where I live.
