Between 7-12 April we built two 12′.6″ stand-up-paddle-boards in the Burnett Wood Surfboards workshop in Scarborough. It was a huge thrill to see these majestic boards come together in the space of six days. Check out the video below.
For the first time, in 2015 Burnett Wood Surfboards has extended our range of wood surf-craft with an exciting range of wood stand up paddleboards (SUP) that include surfing, flatwater and downwind boarding models.
The four models now available in the SUP range complement the existing hollow wood surfboard courses offered by Burnett Wood Surfboards since 2013. This means that for the first time, dedicated SUP course builds are available. The models can also be ordered as completed items, expertly crafted by Burnett Wood Surfboards, and as kit frames for home builders.
The SUP range has been made possible through a partnership with United States-based Clearwood Paddleboards, who have an established range of stunning hollow wood SUPs. These boards have all been designed and water tested by Clearwood Paddleboards. The range includes a 9′-0″ surf SUP, a 10′.4″ surf SUP, a 12′.6″ paddling board and a 14′ touring/racing SUP. More details and pictures of the models are available below.
SUP courses at Burnett Wood Surfboards are scheduled for February, May and September, but those who can’t make these dates are welcome to contact us and book alternative dates.

This board is 9′ x 29″ x 4 1/8″ so it has lot’s of volume. It has enough volume for bigger riders but is responsive enough for lighter weight riders as well. It has a slight “v” in the tail and other than that is totally flat. This board is best ridden with a thruster or 2 + 1 set up.
This board is 10′-4” long x 29″ wide x 4 ¼” thick. Designed to ride like a traditional longboard, it’s the perfect board for smooth fluid turns and feels like a much smaller board. It was designed to surf but has worked great as an all-around board for smaller paddlers wanting a board for surfing or cruising. It’s a big board but is still really fun to ride on smaller days. It’s got a generous amount of tail rocker and a really thinned out foil in the tail so turns well for such a big board and works fine as a nose rider even with a flat bottom. This one is flat nose to tail and is set up as an old school single fin.
This board is 12′-6″ long x 27″ (also available in 30″ wide) wide by 6 ½” thick at the nose. It is a fun and fast board that slices through small chop with ease and can be down winded in up to waist high bumps. It is designed to be a fast paddling board for either touring or recreational racing. Although this board is not a dedicated downwind board, for those paddlers with some experience in surf the “Umpqua” is fun in downwind conditions. It’s been paddled on the ocean, local lakes and in downwind conditions.
This board is 14′-0″ long x 6 1/2″ at the nose x 25”, 27″ or 30” wide, depending on rider size. It is a fast touring board.
