North Pacific 9'3" SUP

Adam just got back from New Zealand and Fiji and was greeted by his new 9'3" North Pacific winger diamond tail SUP custom...man, the guys at the North Pacific factory are cranking out these handcrafted beauties faster, and better, than you will ever find in the USA...







It tracked really well even with the small 3" rear sidebiters...turns on a dime...


More shots in this GALLERY...

The next batch is getting shaped right now...we'll have them in 2 weeks...

These boards are handcrafted lightweight...strong...good looking , stable, high performance SUP's...you won't find this quality anywhere...

More Love from North Pacific

The North Pacific has been sending some love this Winter...we enjoyed the swell last week down in the Baja and returned to a new swell throwing out some double overhead sets...and, even a triple overhead macking wave that I was able to connect with on my new 10'6" North Pacific stinger gun quad (+1)...designed with a fast mainland rocker...

We just got another batch of these "Made in the USA" homegrown SUP's in and have one left...





More shots of the latest batch in this GALLERY...

The 10'2" North Pacific Mullet has arrived...business up front...party out the back...;-)
Part nose rider...part high performance short board...
Rob has been ripping on it...he's STOKED!!!














Here's a new 9'3' x 31" diamond tail winger...and, a new Wahine "Flower" model...
Several other new models coming soon...it doesn't stop there...we'll help you design a custom SUP that's just right for you...




If you can dream it...we can build it...

North Pacific "Mullet" SUP

In our never-ending quest for the "holy grail" of board design...we have been working with Art Colyer of North Pacific Surfboards on the "ultimate mini-tanker noserider SUP"...

Not quite finished...still have to set the center fin box...but, we couldn't wait to introduce you to the "Mullet"...it's all business up front...party out the back...;-)







This puppy is a 10'2" x 30" noserider SUP with a high performance double bump, round pin tail...quad plus 1...we went with a killer, marbled gray bowling ball swirl airbrush...S T R I K E !!!



This is only one of a couple of new hand shaped designs that our association with Art Colyer, and the North Pacific team, are producing...these cutting edge designs are starting to energize the SUP waveriding world here on the mainland in real time...

North Pacific has been delivering this Winter...these sexy lines have been seen around town on a number of vehicles...before, and after, sessions in the green room...;-)





Becky came in today and scored a sweet 9'6" North Pacific diamond tail quad plus 1...
She is a hot wahine outrigger paddler, and surfer...also, a talented artist who paints for a famous toy billionaire...can't wait to see her shred a few on this puppy...

BTW, I sell toys, too...all of that college edumacation...go figure...;-)
Maybe someday, if things keep going as well as they have...I'll have a few more zeros in my portfolio from selling toys, too...;-)



We set her beach cruiser...a Toyota 4 Runner...up with a set of HandiRack inflatable roof racks...






Sweet custom SUP ride...



Hot Gerry Lopez quad Future fin setup...all lit up...







We have an infinite number of hand shaped shapes, sizes, and colors of SUP's that we can offer you...here's a few to tickle the gray matter between your ears...paddle surf boards for mainland conditions...



From the beginning, we have been pushing the edge of SUP board design...innovating, not imitating...but, thanks for the flattery fellers...;-)

We have been working with longtime established, and RESPECTED, board shapers...guys that have HAND SHAPED thousands of surfboards, sailboards, kite boards, and tow boards...from our work with Sean Ordonez when we introduced the world's first molded epoxy production SUP's...the legendary "Big Red" and "Big Blue"...to our work with Joe Blair on the first wider quadfin SUP's under 10'...we have worked with Bill Foote on his most popular SUP designs...the 11' x 30" and 9'10" x 29.5"...our input has also contributed to establishing the Starboard SUP line as the premiere production SUP board company on the planet...and, the beat goes on...pa rum pa pum pum...pa rum pa pum pum...
