WELCOME TO RIOT STAND-UP PADDLEBOARDS, OUR NEW REBRANDED NAME. THE WEBSITE IS CURRENTLY UNDER CONSTRUCTION.

hello

Three Piece Paddleboard

Our new three piece paddleboard project is developing nicely. This is a concept I’ve been working on now for 8 years – making a board easier to transport and store, but it wasn’t until recently that I had the added idea to make the board adjustable. Take the same shape – the same pieces – and duplicate them so that you can make a board short or long. The concept is so unique in fact, that we’re patenting the idea.

The “base” board is two pieces – the ends slide together and lock with a ratcheting system that pulls the two pieces together firmly along rigid sliders. This 6′ board is perfect for someone under 150lbs (like kids) looking for a lightweight east and fun play toy. It’s equally effective for someone looking for a small Yoga board that will fit into an “above ground” backyard pool. At 34″ wide, its plenty big enough to support a sub 150lbs person.

When you’re done, take it apart, and store it in a small corner of your house or in the back of your Smart Car. Now clip in the additional 3′ section, and your board goes from 6′ to 9′ so that it has decent paddling speed. At 9′ long its 220ltr and will hold a paddler in excess of 230lbs. With the increased speed, and volume, the board becomes more versatile in its use. Paddle a few miles, try a few waves, go back to your yoga – it’s everything you want it to be. Now ad another identical center section, and your 9′ board becomes 12′ and you have a real distance paddling board. Miles and miles of paddling is possible. A stable fishing platform is achieved, and you have the volume and length to carry two full sized adults so you can paddle tandem. Parents with children… lovers… you and your dogĀ  -it’s all part of what makes this board so amazing. And when its time to do more yoga in the backyard pool, simply remove the center sections again, click it back together, and you’re ready to go.

The molds for this are very expensive (much more than rotomolding which is already not cheap), and so we’ve gone for a cloud funding project to raise the money to bring this to market. You can see our project here: Kickstarter

This is an awesome deal for everyone involved. It helps us bring this idea to life, and it gets you, the end user, a board at much less money than what the retail price would be. You can’t beat a win-win situation like this. So we’re appealing to your instinctive need to save money, own something truly practical and unique, and be a part of stand up history.

Cloud Funding

I just wanted to let you know that our Kickstarter project is now live.

We’re raising money for an exciting new project we’re working on to manufacture a three piece paddleboard that we are patenting. Here is the link if you’re interested, or you know anyone who might be interested in supporting this project:

New Innegra Material

We’ve been working tirelessly to develop ways to make a stronger board, without pricing ourselves out of the market. We came across a fantastic new material called Innegra, that can be combined with carbon, fiberglass, or used on its own to create lightweight, highly impact resistant boards. Think of it as a Kevlar that doesn’t yellow, absorb water when cracked, or fuzz when sanded. So far all drop dart impact tests show the material to be as effective as Kevlar when impacted (in the combinations we use with the foam and fiberglass sandwich). More testing continues as we do the first tests on boards that require high impact resistance. Then we’ll see how the material works to make them more snap resistant in large surf. The testing continues. Here are some photos of the Afterburner (uncoloured) so the Innegra fabric can be seen.
