Building a SUP out of plastic bottles has been on the SUPboarder teams bucket list for a while now. This great video from ‘The Whale Company’ shows how you can do it.
Have you made a SUP out of plastic bottles? And where did you paddle? If you have any tips you can share with the rest of the SUPboarder community we would love to hear them below.
128 (3 little) soda bottles
2 adhesive sealant tubes
3 cans of spray foam (SIKA boom brand – used in SE Asia)
Bike pump with inner tube attached
Old fan used as fins
Old yoga mat
Cutter and scissors
The video was filmed in Vang Vieng, Laos in September 2018 at Silver Naga Hotel with the help of Laos staff.
