Pat LeMehaute Designed Molded SUP's

These Carolina Blue H2O All Rides designed by Pat LeMehaute mold were put to a test. The boards were popped out of the mold this past week. Seppe and I paddled them for a couple hours. They are stable, floaty, plane water and feel solid while under feet. 11'x31''x4&7/8''.....We had two different fins in each but both worked great. We have the process down after a few boards learning from each now where ready to go into production and get a few out for the fleet.

Found a buoy floating in the marsh and had to

utilize some how. (Hopity Hop paddling)
