Re: SUP - the latest thing . . .
If ur daughter plans on doing any actual surfing on it (nc has great waves so she prob will) then dont go for the clc board, which is more of a flat water racer.
I built a hollow wooden surfboard last year, and surf on it regularly. They are a blast to build and look great, but will be heavier than a foam board, so especially for sup be sure to build as light as possible. There are a few free designs available on grainsurf.com, as well as tons of help and step by step instructions. Do not build a hard chined surfboard, the "rails" are everything. Here's a pic of my longboard:
Pm me if u have any questions, especially about keeping it light, which i repeat, is essential or ur daughter wont use it. And once more, no hard chines!!!!
