Re: Stand Up Paddleboarding, Who works out on one ?

We got really lucky with finding a place for my new (used) SUP. Attaches very nicely under the solar panels. Everybody loved using the board when we were up in the Sea of Cortez last summer. I found it used in San Diego, it is a little beat up however if I want to bring it up on the reef I don't cringe about the small scratches. Surfs great too! Our blog has lots of pics of the SUP to get you motivated.

That's a pretty good rack mount there. I think in PV if I can scrape up the cash I'll redo my solar panel mounts and put up something like that. Seems like it would be a bear to get the boards in while at anchor though?

Re: Stand Up Paddleboarding, Who works out on one ?

We sometimes put our SUP board on top of of our dingy ( on the davits ) and it is under our 2 solar panels, it keeps it out of the summer sun mostly which is what is best for the board in the summer sun and heat. Luckily our beam is 14 ft. Our boat came with 2 racks mounted off our safety line stanchions, made for a kayak but 2 SUP boards with covers fit great and it keeps our deck clear. If were going for a couple days sail we roll our inflatable up and stow it if were out in really rough conditions.

The exercise sounds awesome, and we all know how much exercise helps when stuck on a boat with no convenient places to walk, run or bike.

Very excited to add to our program, my friend days he can get me a pro deal.
Best advice you can get is on the "Stand up Zone Forum". Sorry I can't post a link on my phone, but if you Goggle them you should get there.

There is a bit of a learning curve however I am able to take it up and down without much of an issue. A little bird just told me that you are in the Ensenada area? Ensenada is actually where I had the solar panel bracket made for cheap by a good welder, I would guess that the price would actually be higher in PV especially as more and more boats start showing up, that is if you can get it down at all in a reasonable amount of time. Ask around the marina for Alejandro, if you know Spike (who is a great electrician/mechanic) he could point you to Alejandro. Both are great guys who I will recommend.
