a custom hybrid catamaran paddleboard

I've always liked the look of catamarans and the quiet of canoes and kayaks. So several years back (maybe more), I put one foot in front of the other and carved out some prototype supCATs, each one better than the last. Until finally I had one that was 'good enough'. Four ounce fiberglass went on and soon enough that supCAT got wet. It was a delight! Here are some pics in the wild, on a two day float down the Wisconsin River over 2019 Labor Day weekend. Still have this board. Pure pleasure.

What to call it? supCAT is my favorite, but cataSUP and standamaran work too. padacat? Two pontoons and a deck. Call it what you will, but it floats, it paddles and it is a joy out on the water! There's more at supCAT boards website

Lush colors that cut through the water. A spacious deck that can easily hold more than one paddler, or even a paddler and a sitter. Tie downs and hatches allow for more options.
