All SUP’s are custom crafted one at a time in Santa Cruz, CA. Each SUP features 1.5pcf density Marko Foam EPS, 1/8” bass wood stringer, Resin Research Epoxy Resin and Stretch’s exclusive C/TEX lamination. Texalium inlays combined with direct sized Hexcel E-cloth and carbon fiber rail wraps offer high impact strength without the rigid surface feel of a sandwich composite molded production board. Utilizing a refined design in an EPS core with wood stringers and hand laminated skins provides a livelier and more recognizable flex pattern that is more user friendly in all conditions.
We believe in using the best materials and custom building one at a time in order to produce a superior SUP which is lightweight yet strong, flexible, predictable and confident in any wave type. Our SUP’s are designed to yield to sharp pressure so that a defined “sweet spot” and ergonomic contour footing is formed throughout its break-in period. There’s nothing artificial about it. Stretch SUP’s are engineered with the rider in mind.
