“Umpqua” 12′-6″ SUP fishbone framework
Building our “Umpqua” standup paddle board using paulownia wood and salvaged redwood for features, this board can be built to an approximate finished weight of between 26 and 30 pounds making it comparable to foam and glass boards in terms of ease of carrying and handling. This is a fun and fast board that slices through small chop with ease and can be down winded in up to waist high bumps. The “Umpqua” is now available in either 27” or 30” wide versions. The 27” wide version of the “Umpqua” is good for paddler weights up to 155 pounds and the 30” wide version is good for paddler weights up to 175 pounds.
The “Umpqua” is a board that we designed to be a fast paddling board for either touring or recreational racing. We have paddled this board in all sorts of conditions and have found it to be a fast, fun performer. Although this board is not a dedicated downwind board, for those paddlers with some experience in surf the “Umpqua” is fun in downwind conditions. We have paddled the “Umpqua” on the ocean, on our local lakes and in downwind conditions at the Columbia River Gorge and have found the board to be a versatile platform for fun!
