An SUP meant for smaller paddlers
The Aloha is a SUP meant for smaller paddlers. She's fast, stable, easy to maneuver and has a more traditional look than the Lanui. And - aside from the Kidyak - she's the quickest and easiest boat to build in my line up. The lightest, least expensive, quickest and easiest to build SUP on the market, in fact.
transom, etc and comprehensive, well illustrated instructions that guide you step by step from start to finish throughout the build. Just lay the patterns over a sheet of plywood (and you'll only need a little) and cut out the pieces. There's no lofting required, measurements are in both metric and imperial, and the building process is simple and straight forward. This boat can be ready for paint in a weekend, for little expense and with only basic tools.
Photos are of the prototype. The drawing of the updated version, below shows added volume with fuller ends. The plans are for the updated design.
Here you go. Project took a bit longer than anticipated. Sometimes work gets in the way, even during a worldwide pandemic. Still manged to keep the cost relatively low for at about 200 quid, including traction pads. In case you have any other UK enquiries. I used Ceconite 3.4 oz dacron for the skin.
