When considering how to purchase your Clearwood Paddleboards kit, you have two options: Frame Kit or Full Kit.
The Frame Kit option is only the Clearwood Paddleboards CNC-cut interior frame kit which comes ready to assemble. This allows you to select and purchase the rest of the products needed to complete your board in your local area. This option is ideal for our international customers.
The Frame Kit is the internal “fishbone” framework for the shape you choose and is the starting point for your strip-planked board building project. In addition to the Frame Kit, you will need strip material, epoxy, fiberglass, a fin box and fin, and a vent and leash cup set.
We offer Full Kit pricing based on specific customer objectives.
Due to the many and varied options when building these boards, we strive to provide a product that most suits each customer’s paddling objective and budget.
All Clearwood Paddleboards Frame Kits come with the innovative Clearwood “rocker tab system” that allows you to build your board on a flat table rather than first needing to build what is called a “rocker table”.
Randy Bogardus, the shaper/designer/artist here at Clearwood, thought that there must be a simpler way to establish the correct rocker profile when starting a hollow wood board building project. His unique rocker tab system has proven to be a quick and easy method to get an efficient and accurate start on your project.
The Clearwood rocker tabs are built into every CNC-cut Frame Kit we ship and are simply trimmed off when you turn the board over to complete the bottom stripping. In the photo here you can see the rocker tabs projecting below the outline of the frame.
