Gerry Lopez & Ron House SUP's Part Deux

Alrighty then...
We've gotten the new production epoxy Gerry lopez & Ron House SUP's all wet...and they are no longer wave virgins...

These puppies rip!
For high performance standup paddle boards, they are stable and paddle nicely...the stock fins are also quite acceptable...



They are all molded EPS blanks...cut in half and a stringer is glued up...then hand shaped and hand glassed with American glass and Resin Research epoxy resin...
Perfect pinlines and logos are added...very nice flex with a custom surfboard feel...
(MSRP Ron House $1199...Gerry Lopez $1299)

Gerry Lopez 9'6" x 27.5" x 4.25"
RH 9'6" x 27.5" x 4 1/8"
RH 10'6" x 27 7/8" x 4 3/8"
RH 11' x 29" x 4 5/8"
RH 12' x 30" x 4 3/4"

Many more pics in this gallery...

If you're in Santa Barbara...or nearby...you may be interested in hearing Gerry Lopez talk about his new book May 6 at UCSB..."SURF is Where You Find It"...intro by Yvon Chouinard (Patagonia)...

"- surfing any time, any where, and in any way..."



With a standup paddle board...you can just meditate on the mantra that I coined years ago...

Santa Barbara Standup Paddleboarding



The newest members of the Santa Barbara standup paddling community, led by Ericka D, did a phenomenal job of "getting it' in quite challenging "never-ever" conditions over the weekend...they had it all thrown at them...and were game...despite the wind, waves, current & chop they all succeeded in doing several down-winders standing up, and winding up back at the takeoff spot...knee paddling was the call in the wind...but, several of our class persevered standing up...several windsurfers and kiters were seen ripping around right after these shots were taken...
