Hi Minniedog1,

I can't answer your question but I'm curious if you went ahead with your DIY project.
I am mainly interested in if the DIY plan takes in consideration the bottom contour of the board.
Best regards

Hi. I have made a few timber boards, a couple of SUP's. I've never used a kit and just made them from scratch. The hardest part is making the internal frame when you don't have plans. I make my own print offs from a surfboard design program. If the kit includes the precut frame work then half the build is done for you. I think its a great first time way to build a board but in my mind it's more satisfying to build your own design from scratch. They will always be heavier than a foamy but hold a line really well and because you made it yourself they are great to ride.
